I really loved this movie.
25 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. I like seeing movies that attempt to show how drug dealers interact with mainstream society through the various dealings. I just wish I could find this movie on DVD. I recorded it on VHS from broadcast television. I especially liked seeing the lifestyles of the cartel bosses. They parade around like legitimate businessmen. But, they are extremely violent. If you are interested in titles similar to this one, you will not be disappointed. I also liked the performance of Judge Sonia Perez-Vega. She risked her life and her family's. Without people like her, evil triumphs. Lastly, actor Dennis Farina does an excellent job of playing Agent Mike Cerone. His style is basically the same in everything I have seen him in. He really fits this role.
