The Snitch Cartel Movie Review
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Snitch Cartel is a Box Office Hit

The new upcoming The Snitch Cartel movie is set to open October 18th all over the U.S. If you have researched this movie because you've been hearing about it then you will know that this movie has been released internationally for about 2 years. Foreign language films such as The Snitch Cartel usually open overseas and if they are critically acclaimed then they get picked up by a U.S. distributor. The hype that this movie is receiving here in the U.S. is expected. The Snitch Cartel sounds like a modern day Scarface, only this story is true as it follows the life of Andres Lopez Lopez. Why he has the same last name twice is unknown to me so don't ask. Andres Lopez Lopez wrote his manuscript in a Miami prison that would eventually become The Snitch Cartel.

The Snitch Cartel is a True Story

Andres Lopez Lopez lived every moment in The Snitch Cartel. I was watching an interview the other day he did with "Despierta America" which is a very popular Spanish TV Show, and Andres is a very interesting character. He started out in the lower ranks of the Cali Cartel in Colombia and eventually became a lieutenant for the cartel. The story he tells in this movie is better than any mob movie can ever come close to. What makes this movie even more intriguing is that Hollywood is now giving American audiences a chance to peer into the life of the cartels that they only see in news clips. This is not The Godfather where respect and rules are followed and audiences across America will get to see a first hand account of what these cartels are really about in The Snitch Cartel.

The Snitch Cartel Revenge

Will cartels seek revenge on Andres Lopez Lopez? Cartels have been known to never let go of a grudge. I mean, just last year, Griselda Blanco (the Colombian Godmother) was gunned down in Colombia after living away from the cartel for so long. Andres Lopez Lopez lived a life of wealth, cars and women and now he is making a movie and writing books about his experiences within the cartel. Drug Cartel do not like exposure in the mass media and they will keep an eye on Andres Lopez Lopez and the upcoming The Snitch Cartel very closely. The old saying is very true, and like Blanco, do not be surprised if Andres Lopez Lopez dies by the gun.
