Narcos tells the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels across the globe and attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It centers around the notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and Steve Murphy (Holbrook), a DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture him and ultimately kill him.

film review (TV36)

for those of you living under a rock Pablo escobar was...etc etc (from that point on I was hooked. Pablo Escobar is the real life version of "Baba yaga" from John Wick. He was one of the richest people on the planet. He was also the largest cocaine trafficker on the planet. He would also be, by today's standards, simply called a terrorist. He murdered anyone who stood in his way and countless other innocents along the way. I've read a few books on Pablo and I have to say this series TOTALLY does justice to the real story. The writing, directing and acting is unbelievable! I have to admit that personally I feel a little dirty because in some of the scenes I am actually empathizing and relating to Pablo...I CAN'T BELIEVE I AM SAYING THAT!!! The people in charge of this series do such a fantastic job in splitting your allegiances. When Pablo's cousin is killed I literally had to shake my head because even though Escobar is an evil disgusting human being who has destroyed countless lives and brought both Columbia and the US to their knees (and I know this intellectually) I can still relate with him and feel his pain and I found myself devilishly routing for him and I was eagerly anticipating his revenge for for that killing...I WAS FEELING FOR PABLO FREAKING ESCOBAR! Then a few scenes later the DEA agent is kissing babies and planning to go outside of the law to bring him down and I'm back routing for these guys to take that evil person off the streets. Rarely have I encountered such a deep and in depth emotional roller coaster as I have experienced watching this show. These guys deserve a ton of credit. Top notch job. I am fascinated and totally engrossed in watching this ideological DEA agent succumb to his primal urge to take out this evil presence regardless of the moral boundaries he has to cross to do so. My favorite quote from the entire series is "Yeah...I like Olivia" (It reminds me of the premise of another movie I recently watched called "The Man of Tai Chi" which explores the voyeuristic culture we live in where we love to watch innocence being destroyed by the evil that surrounds us). In Narcos this premise is displayed with such skill that I have to bow my head. Complex story, amazing production, and beautiful execution...Bravo Netflix...bravo!

Engrossing, sharp crime drama with interesting insights
It's easy to get pulled into this story from the beginning and crave more and more episodes. The scenes are elaborate yet short, giving a natural feel to the story as if you're getting glimpses of a really intimate documentary. Not only is the pace entertaining but the dramatic turning points are fascinatingly portrayed to take you right there in the midst of Colombian society experiencing all these shocking events and inside the minds of the characters on all sides of the battle as they try to calculate their next move. You've got a furious torrent of money coming into a segment of society that is purely made up of sociopaths, an unprepared and underpaid police force being made mincemeat of or simply being paid to look the other way and a political string of characters that range from corruptible opportunists to saintly martyrs trying to stave the tide against impossible odds. The houses that people have, the lifestyle, the restaurants, cafés, streets, types of interactions, all is authentic down to the smallest detail. It's a delight and it has really made me want to pick up a book and read more about this bloody and interesting struggle of good and evil and in between.

Couldn't take my eyes off from the screen
When I first watched Narcos didn't have much expectation about this TV show. But then I watched the first, the second, the third episode and when I realized, I had finished the second season of it. I'd say the best actuation is in Wagner Moura as Pablo Escobar, and Pedro Pascal as Penã. Its plot is grounded in real facts, some parts are fictional, but still really shocking, intriguing and surrounding. I'd say is the best action TV serie I have ever seen. To be honest I don't know if it shows the reality of the ancient Colombia nor the current, but I'm sure the environment that involve Narcos (full of gangs, weapons, drugs, violence, affairs, revenges and money) is completely breathtaking. Furthermore, something that is really interesting is the presence (in the 2 first seasons) of two sides of Escobar: the one that shows a man who is totally devoted to his family, a great husband and father which is always worried with his family's welfare, and the side of a murderer where Escobar is a frigid, spiteful, wicked man. This show is so well written that this two sides of the man are really intrinsic and couldn't exist without the other. This is just one part of the spetacular charachters and how their constructions is well done. A great TV serie.
