Colombia, USA, 2014, 120 minutesThriller, Romance, History
A tense thriller, beautifully photographed and with a stellar performance from Benicio del Toro - what's not to like? Well, quite a bit, really. The biggest problem is the merging of fact (here, Escobar's rise through Colombian's nefarious drug-addled corridors of power) with fiction (Canadian surfer boy falls in lover with Escobar's niece). I just didn't buy the characters on the fiction side of the story, and when we are subjected to the awful fates that befall them, I struggled to sympathize as from the outset they just never seemed real. Part of this problem is down to Hutcherson, who cannot carry the weight of the drama, and the script and the editing, which bounce about in several directions, leading one to assume there must have been a fair bit of post-production tampering. That said, it's still an entertaining ride and it looks great, so check your brain at the door and you'll thoroughly enjoy it. It's just a shame you can't take it with you.
