Silly accents, and a Narcos conglomerate of episodes
10 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is the worst portrayal of Pablo Escobar ever... having actors from Spain try to give Colombian accents to their characters is painful to watch... at some points they don't even try....

The whole movie feels like a bad conglomerate of Netflix's Narcos episodes. They sell it as being set from the point of view of Virginia, but that's only true at the beginning of the film the rest it's just old Pablo Escobar being Pablo Escobar....

If you want to see a more accurate portrayal of Pablo Escobar I would recommend a Colombian production with Colombian actors which is quite good and well documented, it is called "Pablo Escobar; el patrón del mal" produced by caracol... don't waste your time and money with this movie...
