  1. Explosive entertainment, with the tension and volatility of its subject matter.
  2. There's not a smarter, more demanding American film from the past year.
  3. A flat-out electrifying experience.
  4. May be the first Hollywood movie since Robert Altman's "Nashville" to infuse epic cinematic form with jittery new rhythms and a fresh, acid- washed palette.

    It's the best drug-busting movie since ''The French Connection.''
  6. The picture's thoughtfulness and ambition make it unusually suspenseful, gripping, and disturbing.

    You could get high on this movie's technique, dizzy on its storytelling. Yet it's one of the most lucid bad trips ever made.

    Viscerally unyielding. It flat out hammered me. It kept me interested and off kilter the whole time, and Benicio Del Toro is FABULOUS in it.

    [***SPOILERS***] This terribly pandering piece of cinematography is redeemable only for the scene in which the film's drug czar [***SPOILERS***] This terribly pandering piece of cinematography is redeemable only for the scene in which the film's drug czar concludes that one can't wage a war on drugs without waging war on one's own family and friends. Everything else about this film was dull and unimaginative, clearly designed as filler for this ultimate message that is nearly lost is the sea of meaningless drivel that surrounds it. Collapse
