Blow, a review by Rich


puffing through Colombia...



Johnny Depp offers a bravura performance in this true-life account of the rise and fall of drug kingpin George Jung, who went from selling marijuana in California in the late '60s to becoming a "pioneering" cocaine dealer in the '70s, living a life of wealth and pleasure until his eventual downfall. Penelope Cruz, Ray Liotta, Franka Potente and Paul Reubens also star

A storytelling style similar to Goodfellas and Casino, I found the film dragged on a little, however Depp is fantastic and perfect for the role, although the film relied on him a little too much. This film is low key, with few humourous moments, with Jung coming off more angel than sinner.
Certainly worth watching, but is missing something that stops it being great, and the final feeling is one of unfulfilment. 7/10

Trailers
Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
This is one of the several Westerns that our friend Roger sent me. One that I have never seen before. While entertaining enough... it really didn't hold up to the epic Westerns that I got used to watching. To me this really was just an average movie. I may watch it now and then for marathons... but it is not one I see watching too often. The DVD itself is pretty much bare bones... only containing the trailer. But I still appreciate it Roger.. Thanks for sending it!

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
