Review: (#1) There’s something almost hypnotic about this overly generic pose. It definitely establishes look and character, but it also doesn’t do much else.
(#2) Not sure how this in-your-face image of a sleepy-eyed Javier Bardem as Pablo Escobar is going to sell the film, but that’s where we’re at. (#3) If Escobar could have printed money with his face on it, he would have, which makes this a fairly succinct expression of his personality even if it’s not terribly exciting.
Trailer Rating: B+

Review: A riveting trailer with stellar performances makes this film look like an Oscar contender even if its June release betrays that.
This looks like it could be a major Oscar player with its stars Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz being sure contenders for acting accolades.
