Movie Reviews

Bloodshed, Violence, Tragedy
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 08/06/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This work shows the rise and fall of the biggest cocaine's trafficker. Sensitive viewers should not watch this as it shows myriad shot and mangled corpses. Escobar killed 3 Colombian presidential candidates, 11 of the country's 21 justices, and thousands more. These facts are Machiavellian: the more crimes he committed, the more people and groups were willing to fight him no matter what. The work ends with comparisons of Escobar to bin Laden. For years, I have heard that Colombia is a very violent and troubled country. This work touches upon why that is.

This has diverse interviewees: American and Colombian nationals, native English speakers, those using English as a second language, and those whose Spanish must be translated. I do think all the interviewees were male, however. This work interviews many important people, including ambassadors, presidents, vice-presidents, and DEA agents.

I was told that this work was 60 minutes, but it's actually 90. Now maybe I didn't see a high-quality copy, but this sure didn't seem to have chapters. So don't think you can skip around without doing a lot of fast-forwarding."
Very Informative Bootleg Quality DVD
SeanLau99 | Chicago, IL United States | 11/19/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'll get right to the point. This DVD would be up there with Cocaine Cowboys 1-2, Mr. Untouchable, and other informative documentaries but it's mega-cheap and definitely not worth the price. It looks like something I could have bought in an alley behind a fried chicken shack for five bucks or less. There's no menu or chapters. It just begins abruptly and ends the same way. It feels like it was recorded from a cable tv show. On the other hand, I was shocked, amazed, and thrilled by Pablo's rise and fall. I just wish I would have bought my copy on the street."
Okay
