Aunque me disgusta la fotografía en las escenas situadas en México pues lo hacen ver como un rancho de los años 70, la premisa de la película es buena: el narcotráfico no tiene solamente una arista sino muchas y cada una de ellas bastante problemática. ¿Cómo acabar con el tráfico de drogas en México cuando las autoridades están ligadas a los narcotraficantes? ¿Cómo terminar con la llegada de drogas desde México cuando la demanda en Estados Unidos es exponencial? ¿Cómo evitar el consumo de drogas cuando para los adolescentes resulta más fácil conseguir drogas que alcohol? ¡¿Cómo?! Es la gran interrogante que deja ver esta cinta.

An interesting film for sure. The idea of showing multiple prospectives of the drug world is cool and I like how no one truly wins in the end. Everyone loses something. I think as a consequence for so many perspectives it does also feel like a bit of a mess to watch. There's just not enough time for each character to become developed. There's also no grand victory that's won its moreso just a snapshot into the war on drugs. Overall I thought it was worth watching but not really top cinema for me. I give it a solid 8/10.

>"You guys remind me of Japanese soldiers on deserted islands who still think World War 2 is still going on. The fact is that your government surrendered this war a long fucking time ago." Maybe I should've watched this when it came out, because I didn't love it like everyone else did. It was not bad, just definitely feels outdated. There are some good moments and I like that it shows the drug world from many different perspectives, just overall I don't think it will be something I need to watch again.

**Well done and definitely worth watching.** Although the interlinked stories device is a bit played out nowadays, it wasn’t at the time of release. Michael Douglas, Don Cheadle, and Benicio del Toro are great in this. The weakest story is definitely the daughter’s and Topher Grace really plays to type here. >Francisco: “I don't really like guns. You shoot someone in the head three times and some pinche doctor will keep them alive.”

Seen this a few times over the years and still remains a compelling multi-character drama with some fine performances all around. Also has some great visuals depending on the storyline. Not sure where I rank it amongst Soderbergh's other works (Ocean's 11 has the fun factory going for it) but still More

**Someone needs to go back to directing school**

This gem of the millennium comes with a great story (which has been done countless times before and after), great actors (funny faced most of them), and very well done action.

Unfortunately all is wasted on the terrible actual telling of that st More
