Every Escobar movie after Narcos is useless
12 January 2019 | by aramkxSee all my reviews

If you didnt see Narcos you will probably will have difficulties to understand many connections in the movie. And Wagner Moura was so good that its very hard to challenge him , not Bardem not someone else. Just an average movie with Escobar story after Narcos success..
