Martin Gonzalez is a lower class boy who discovers the world of drug trafficking in the way to upward mobility fundamentally to win the love of Sophia, a good girl, a priori unattainable, which is his love since childhood. His boldness, unconsciousness and youth lead him to become active and vital part of the dangerous "Cartel Norte del Valle", a criminal organization that defines itself as a bloodthirsty and powerful device that overcame the Cali Cartel in cunning military power of corruption and economic strength. Several years of drug and appropriate (bad) friends helped Martin to move up the syndicate, and finally getting the attention of Sofia and win her love. Written by Anonymous

You will have a nice moment, but don't expect a masterpiece
14 October 2012 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

It is a good action movie. I enjoyed the movie. But it doesn't have something that makes this movie remarkable or something that makes it different from other action movies. It's part of the gangsters' genre, everything happened fast, which is good for an action movie. Some shooting scenes are not totally convincing, I mean 5 gays with power weapons have a lot of troubles to kill two guys with just a pistol. it's the same old thing: treason, prostitution, cocaine, dead, money and gangsters' eccentricity. Well, if you are interest in really good films make in Colombia I recommend you this tittles: "La estrategia del caracol", "Satanas", "Paraiso travel".
