Kill the Messenger (2014)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 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.

PROS –
1) The first 20 minutes.
