This movie was so boring, that I don’t even want to write a Review about it! >< I am so disappointed with Oliver Stone. He actually belonged to my favorite directors, but after this movie, I am not so sure anymore. The cast is promisind indeed with names like Hayek, Del Toro and Hirsch, but the plot is just ridiculous. It is quite unrealistic for two guys to risk their lifes for a girl who fucks with both. And all the ‘I-am-such-a-badass-motherfucking-druglord’ shit seemed like a cheap copy from other, good movies. Everything seemed like  wannabe-crime movie. The useless killing and violence (WHY did Lado kill that young boy?? Just because he is too soft? WTF! No one does this without a reason. If he is too soft, he will be killed by an enemy sometime, but it doesn’t make sense that Lado kills him without any reason…), and all the drama about weed. I mean, it is weed, not cocaine or heroine. All that drama seems a bit too much just for cannabis. And all the friendship-stuff between Ophelia and Elena was just ridiculous. I am really disappointed by this movie. All those hot guys weren’t enough to entertain me either.

I was SO bored by this movie, that I started browsing Instagram! DURING WATCHING A MOVIE! That’s my worst no-go while watching movies.

Final rating – 2/10: The only good thing about the movie was: 1. Salma Hayek 2. Benicio Del Toro. They both made me laugh,… sometimes… Oh, and Blake Lively was horrible!
