“Reading the reviews iu0026#39;m not sure why people were expecting this movie to be like an Oscar winner or something? Going in I wasnu0026#39;t expecting it to be an Oscar winner, if you were expecting this movie to be about a Mexican cartel and not have violence in it then you know zero about Mexican cartels and that is an understatement.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFunny thing was i was expecting this movie not to portray Mexican cartels in their real light, but after watching the movie, yup they are as ruthless as the movie portrays and glad Hollywood portrayed them like that instead of sugar coating the threat they pose to the world.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you are looking for a violent action movie based on an American drug ring vs a Mexican cartel well you probably have one of the better movies when it comes to that. If you are looking for gone with the wind, sound of the music or something like that best look else where. Me, I highly enjoyed the movie, it delivered better than i thought it was going to deliver. People will complain about the violence but again this is about a Mexican cartel, not the boy scouts. There is nothing i hate more than a movie that isnu0026#39;t true to itu0026#39;s roots, but this movie stays true to what Mexican cartels are all about when it comes to business.”
