Nothing like the original Cocaine Cowboys

"CC2 really has nothing to do with Cocaine Cowboys except that Griselda Blanco is mentioned. CC2 is the glamorization of Charles Cosby's (who?) successful life of crime and his thug cronies. It's hardly a documentary and shouldn't be a sequel to CC1. If your looking for a follow up to the captivating, well written, well edited, and well produced CC1, this is not it. If you want a hour and a half long rap video to go along with your Scarface collection, have at it."
Decent, but nowhere near the original....

"Three and a half stars for this. If "Cocaine Cowboys" was the Vice City of true crime, then this is the San Andreas, as we head to the west coast in the early 1990's. Hard to top the original (probably the best true crime docu ever made), but still good."
This is NOT the Griselda Blanco story!

"This is the CHARLES COSBY story. Cosby was the lover of Blanco during and after her stay in prison, and nearly all of the story is told by him. VERY dubious credibility, and just plain dull. Cop "The Godmother" by Richard Smitten and skip this dreck."
Better than the first

"I ordered this DVD, and, after watching it, I have to say that it's actually better than the first. The animated re-enactments, coupled with the rich story-telling, were off-the-hook; and the street, as well as common sense, smarts Cosby demonstrates is riveting: you can't stop watching him, once you've started. His firsthand account of Griselda's history, her upbringing, her power, is communicated via a very simple approach, almost like listening to a friend tell a story, but it works. Having grown up in the "hood," seen the power, and destruction, created by drugs, and those associated with them, this story definitely hits home."
