STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0

CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) An educational movie for the audiences to understand the CIA-Contra deal to traffic cocaine into the US.
2) Andy García as Norwin Meneses. The flamboyant drug-lord in a Nicaraguan prison.

 

CONS –
1) The biographical tone of the movie is it’s the biggest problem. A story from a different point of view would’ve been more interesting. A TV Series like Narcos explaining how the drug trafficking actually started would be worth watching.

VERDICT – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) Charlize Theron as Marlo – her jaw-dropping physical transformation for this role.

 

CONS –
1) If one word can define this movie it’s “weird”. Parenting can be difficult but the movie is taking that difficulty to another level for trivial reasons.
2) Comedy movie? On what planet ménage à trois and child mental disorder are funny?
