Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Nick might usurp most of the screen time, but it's Mr. Del Toro, face flickering from benevolent to vicious and body heaving with literal and symbolic weight, who seizes the film.
Fresh: Escobar offers an odd mix of action movie, romantic melodrama and cautionary traveler's tale, which works better than it should thanks to Del Toro's fascinating performance and Di Stefano's assured, muscular helming.
Rotten: When you have the fortune of landing an actor like Del Toro, it's almost criminal to spend so much time watching the scales fall from an innocent's eyes when we could be watching a master actor convey quiet, sleepy-eyed, mumbling menace.
Rotten: Benicio del Toro is a looming, larger-than life presence in this smaller-than-it-deserves, 1980s drama.
