Well done but overly complicated.
"The Line" is an overly complicated drugs cartel movie with a very good cast and some first-rate cinematography as well as ambitions above its modest station. Ray Liotta is an assassin, Esai Morales his target, Andy Garcia a dying drugs lord and Armand Assante a very dubious priest. It's almost impossible to follow with too many characters involved in too many double-crosses and with too many needless flashbacks though there is a neat 'explanatory' twist at the end. Fleshed out a bit this might have made a good six part series; as it is it's over before it really gets started. Dedicated to the city of Tijuana it's also unlikely to encourage anyone, not involved in the drugs trade, to go there for a visit.
