Review of Narcos

Fridays, 3:00 AM ET on Netflix

60 minutes

Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces - legal, political, police, military and civilian - that clash in an effort to control the world's most powerful commodity: cocaine.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This dramatized take of Pablo Escobar's life is very well made with great visuals and acting. The story keeps you involved and interested throughout with the birth of the cocaine trade in Columbia and its subsequent exportation to America, and I really liked the insertion of pictures and clips from the actual events of the 1980s.

Each episode was packed with information that was easy to follow thanks to the voice-over narration from DEA agent Steve Murphey (Boyd Holbrook).

Also, whether a deal breaker or not is up to you (personally I am a fan), most of each episode is shot in Spanish.
