Up there with 5he godfather for all the wrong reasons - Escobar review by JD

Spoiler Alert

So bardem thinks he can do a brando by talking like he's got cotton wool in his mouth. I caught every other 8th word. Either that or the dvd was out of whack. I think the former as stupidly the film subtitled the Spanish swearing immediately switching back to unintelligible English once the swearing had ended.

Overall could have been enjoyable film but spoilt by this

Now to the positives. Why should you watch this film? Why should you watch any film?

Because it stars penelope cruz. Frankly I would watch PC if it was a film about paint drying.

Her only blemish for me is vicky Christina Barcelona.. But I'll forgive anyone a mistake.

So although I've given 2 stars.. Watch it and maybe you'll make sense of it dialogue wise.
