As expose's go this is pretty good. The film contains much of what the drug trafficking and traffickers in and around Miami got up to in the '70's and '80's.

Rich pickings for some, instant death for others. A couple of the people doing the trafficking appear to be very bright guys, one estimating his net profits from the lucrative drugs 'market' as somewhere in the region of $50 million, with another thinking nothing of spending close to $1 million on a plane to be used for trafficking, from Columbia to Miami.

Where it all seems to go wrong, for the cartels, is at the point Castro cleans up the streets of Cuba by deporting, on ships, all the pond life of Cuba to the… Read more

After sitting through this montage of Bruce Willis theatricals I found myself wondering what had happened.

Full of third rate acting and fourth rate Irish accents.

Not a patch on the original,with Edward (not James) Fox, and certainly not worth the energy, time or money.
