Interesting to a point. Unable to understand most of the dialogue. Mistress was a gold digger looking for a story for her network.

What a STUPID movie. I have read about the mistress before so thought this would be a good one. Tried to gain sympathy for this broad that thought she was really hot stuff screwing Escobar. HA! Like she didn't know what she was getting herself into. Could not understand the dialogue about 70% of the time. Don't waste your time.

Watched it and liked it, and he was one bad guy that created a lot of problems with his drug trade. My only issue was some what difficult following all the conversations because of accents and tone of voices.

Good movie, good acting, good directing but....it's really odd to see 'Mexicans' speaking English to one another in English with a Spanish accent. I understand the movie will cater to English speaking audience, but it'd be less odd to just have the dialogue in Spanish and add English subtitles...or just speak English without a Spanish accent. I am pretty sure Pablo Escobar spoke in Spanish and not in English with a Spanish accent.

The movie is quite accurate to the Escobar story and timeline....according to common knowledge. I like how it illustrates the drug cartel operations, the extent to which they can control so much of the country. There're little twists and turns to the movie for dramatic effects but overall, quite a close depiction of the real stuff.

Overall, a pretty good movie...if you can get over the Spanish speaking people speaking English to one another in a Spanish accent thing...
