To understand better what happened with Pablo Escobar in the Columbian drug war in the 80ies I highly recommend you to check out the great Netflix series Narcos. You won't regret.
If you liked this genre of movie don't miss Der Letzte Zug, Son of Soul, Die Fâlscher, The Pianist, Sarah's Key or Elser. If you are interested read my critics on this site for all these mentioned great movies.
If you liked this I recommend to see the other terrorism thrillers THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, WHITE HOUSE DOWN or OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN.
Watch instead The Ninth Gate or Gothika.
