    Blow is a boring rip-off of Goodfellas, a over the top crime film. Goodfellas was excellent, you know, Blow is just a very bad and boring film. Ted Demme works well on the locations and filming, but it all sums up to a piece of druggie crap. Johnny Depp was amazing, witty and energetic for this crap, which I enjoyed. Blow was a bad thriller, it had no sense- a boring movie and a really badBlow is a boring rip-off of Goodfellas, a over the top crime film.

    A half-baked attempt at a variety of ideas that were better used in greater films (namely Goodfellas). Depp and Liotta give entertaining performances as usual, but the fun burns out quickly.

  1. The real problem is that there's nothing to George but the movie's props.
  2. Only Depp and Ray Liotta (as Jung's father) manage to animate this tired formula.

    When George’s fortunes start to go from bad to worse, so does the movie.
