Paul J. Alessi,
I was excited when this title came out on Netflix. I have enjoyed many of the drug czar productions that have come out recently especially Narcos. This one took a good opportunity and spoiled it with terrible acting and absolutely no action. They could have tried a little more to glamorize the true story. Narcos used a lot of creative license to create a compelling story with interweaved action sequences. Instead, Chapo moves painfully slow from one conversation to the next. This is an incredible story that has been boiled down to a run of the mill Mexican soap opera. I could forgive the producers if the acting wasn't so bad. Don't even get me started on the bad script. Huge disappointment.
