Trivia

Benicio Del Toro was rumored to be in talks to play Pablo Escobar in the movie "Medellin". Entourage (2004) Season 4 revolves around the making of that movie. See more »

Goofs

When Nick is hiding in the car, there is a hole in the cover that is projecting a focused circle of light on his face. In reality, the overcast weather would produce very diffused light and therefore the light projected on Nick's face would be a soft glow, not a focused circle. See more »

Quotes

Pablo Escobar: [Commenting about the murder of Roldano Brother] Cause God has done nothing to do with it.It was you, Nick.It was your intervention that got those people killed. You're as guilty as I am.

Brutal, Intense and Scene Gripping
11 February 2015 | by tomjoseph-lyonsSee all my reviews

Pablo Escobar the most powerful drug lords in human history.

This movies gives you an insight to how he would have been viewed by his family, associates and of course the public of Columbia.

You'll find that life is cheap, trust is thin and power is everything.

It also leaves you with a questions..

Is the wealth, power and money worth the sacrifice of family, simplicity and freedom?

Would recommend you make your own opinion of this movie, personally I found it enthralling and couldn't look away..

If this review helped, please leave a like or what have you.

Cheers, Thomas Lyons
