Nicko meets a girl in the local village and they quickly fall in love, only for Nicko to later find out that Maria's uncle is the drug trafficker, Pablo Escobar. His life takes a dramatic turn after meeting El Patron, and Nick is forced into impossible situations to try and keep his family safe, but does Pablo have other ideas?Written by
Not impressed with Josh. He seemed to have one expression throughout the entire film.
Benicio Del Toro carries the entire flick. Hell, half of it was in Spanish and it was superb to watch him. To stuff his bank account, he needs to be the villain in either a new Batman or Star Trek film. He makes every role believable.
Overall, the film is worth a watch, if only to get a feel for what life might be like in romanticized Central and South America. Like I said, I finished it -- unlike Markie Mark's "The Gambler," which dragged me thorough a half hour before I searched YouTube for a Hopalong Cassidy adventure.
