Film: Drug War
Maybe my expectations were a bit high. "The French Connection meets the Wire." "Better than anything Michael Mann's done in years." These were my primers going in. The film was okay. There was some spectacular action sequences, but nothing that tops Michael Mann's work. More similar to John Woo. The film was ridiculously complicated and lacked the verisimilitude of French Connection or the Wire. This was stylized. Anyhow, a disappointment given my high expectations.
