Although "The Cocaine Cartel" isn't as good as the "Drug Wars: The Camarena Story" (with Steven Bauer, Elisabeth Pena, Benicio Del Toro, Everett McGill), it is still a ripping yarn that should keep you on the edge of your seat if you haven't seen it already.
The movie feels like an extended Miami Vice episode, which brings me to the fact that it doesn't have the name "Michael Mann" anywhere on it. However, it has a very Michael Mann type feel, complete with several of his favorite actors (Denis Farina from Manhunter and Crime Story, Alex McArthur from L.A. Takedown and John Glover, who played/starred in one Miami Vice episode).
The story is about a newly appointed DEA agent who is assigned to go after the Medellin Cartel. In all, the movie is pretty suspenseful.
