Not Oliver Stones best but somewhat entertaining

Oliver Stone throws what seems to be a great hit out. Drugs, money, sex, if you're into to that stuff and add on good acting pretty much overall. Sounds like a classic but the story is a bit unrealistic but still not horrible. (Slight Spoiler Alert) The ending lacked I think what the audience would want, although it is perhaps more on a realistic note, as to what would happen in real life with the constant corruption of those with law enforcement power.

I loved it. However, they could have definitely cut out 1/2 hr. Movie was 2 1/2 hrs long. It kept me entertained and guessing as to what was going to happen next. Definitely some bloody scenes that made you say OMG but seemed realistic due to the type of violent criminals involved. Salma was awesome and the boys were HOT. Especially Chon. The endin was, at first, WTF ... but the ended up good. I will buy when it comes to Blueray.

Selma Hayek was absolutely great as was most of the cast. The main actor was the least interesting character, however. It's not as bloody as I anticipated. Actually, very funny in parts.

my husband and I went to see this movie last weekend thinking this was going to be a great movie because the previews looked really good, but as soon as we were maybe 1hr and a 1/2 into it I was like really!!! I thought there was going to be more to the story line but there wasn't It was kind of predictable. But overall it was o.k. but not what I expected

The flick was ok, they could of chosen a different narrator and the use of narration is getting too common as well as boring these days. Benecio Del toro was excellent, his performance kept the film cohesive. I didn't like the ending. Salma Hayek's would of been better if she was more ruthless.
