it gets 7.5 on IMDB - I'd give it about a four, if that
(maybe that's harsh, there were some good scenes...)
About George Jung -
the guy who got cocaine flowing in the US in the 1970's. Apparently he was basically a really nice guy who left it all behind, and all his problems were really caused by other people - especially the women in his life.
I dunno where they got the story (possibly from George Jung himself?) but it was like a propaganda film for him - left me doubting the storyline again and again. And the main dealers were just too good looking to be quite convincing...
Actually I saw a reasonably good drugs related film lately:Snitch
reviewers on imdb seemed suprised about the lead guy being good because he was a profi-wrestler. I didnt know that when I saw it.
Based on the mandatory sentencing laws, where if you're caught with over a certain amount of drugs, the only way you can reduce your sentence is to implicate or setup someone else. A desperate father tries to setup someone to help reduce his son's sentence.
A good film - lots of action, but convincing story line and very real dealers in this one compared to the one above...
