Huh-- is this a narco-película?
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wonder if this is a movie funded with drug money. Lots of drug money since the production values are very good. Unfortunately the drug must have been a cocaine meth speed-ball, since it is near impossible to tell what the heck is going on. The movie hops around in time and the same bad guy is after the same protagonist so it is hard to tell current events from flashbacks. There was lots of gratuitous violence and you could almost hear the "chop, chop, chop.....snooooorrt, hey lets have him shoot that place up too." If they just financed the movie instead of meddling with the plot, story, and dialog, this might have been much better. The had great acting and cinematography that was ruined by the story. Dopers, who really cares if they kill themselves? The dopers think they are cool, but they have been losers for 2000 years and all the snazzy camera work and good audio can't make it interesting.
