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 »

Great movie, sorry I didn't see it in the theater!! It didn't get enough promotion here!
16 February 2016 | by urthcreatureSee all my reviews

Great psycho-thriller, draws you right in. Loved the understated style, movie manages to suggest what's going on without resorting to grisly torture scenes and other clichés. Most violence is shown after the fact, not too graphic. (Of course not suitable for children.) Great performances, beautifully filmed. If you love Apocalypse Now / Last King of Scotland type films where a mysterious megalomaniac is glimpsed or gradually revealed through the eyes of an outsider, you will probably especially like it (in this case it is just glimpses of Escobar, on one hand the family man, adored by his supporters, and on the other a completely detached and ruthless psychopath.) Of course Benicio del Toro is incredible in the role of Escobar and all the cast are excellent. Unfortunately it seems the title gave some viewers/critics the expectation that the movie should be a biopic of Escobar, and the fact del Toro was so good in the role just left people wanting more. But it is a really good movie nonetheless.
