Trivia

Filmmakers spent around seven years looking for 1970's look-alike locations in Cali, Colombia. It took this long, because the city hadn't preserved many of its old buildings. See more »

When Pedro is in the park with "El Camarada" we see trashcans that were introduced in 1999. See more »

A great movie thats hard to find!
7 July 2007 | by SierraquequeSee all my reviews

I saw this movie with family in south America a few years ago and it was a fairly big hit, in Latin America it got good reviews and did well, but in the United States it pretty much never made it(which happens with a lot of foreign films). To me it was like Scarface with more substance. I'm into the genre of crime films, but find myself bored by the recycled plots. This movie is made in Colombia about a real Colombia drug kingpin and its excellent. Its available on Netflix, because obviously blockbuster wouldn't carry a movie like this, and its well worth it. It is not a high budget action movie like we're use to, its more of a crime drama set in the world of drugs that has a very authentic feel to it since its all filmed on located in Cali, Colombia.
