This is a great movie . But if you buy it on amazon video the subtitles won't work - which as a third of the movie is in Spanish - is essential. (Unless of course you speak Spanish!) Amazon have confirmed the subtitles aren't available in this format and refunded my rental fee, so now I'm ordering the DVD instead!

This movie concentrates to the war on drugs and is told from three different perspectives. A newly appointed judge, who leads USA`s war on the drugs. But his own daughter is a crack addict. Couple of DEA agents try to protect an important witness against a drug baron. And lastly the wife of the imprisoned drug baron. All the stories are intertwined together. Great ensemble cast and a great movie.

This is a fairly long movie but i was engrossed after the opening scene. The film weaves several different, interconnecting stories all linked to drug trafficking. Cathering Zeta Jones is suberb as the wealthy wife who discovers that her husband's fortune isn't made from ligitimate business dealings, there is no way she will give up her life of luxury. Michael Douglas is his usual watchable self playing a government official who has just been given the job of sorting out the USA's drugs problem, little does he know what his teenage, privately educated daughter is getting up to. There are some very violent scenes including torture so this film may not be for the faint hearted. There is an almost-funny scene where the cops are trying to protect an informant whilst staying in a dingy hotel. A very entertaining film.

It never occurred to me that it wouldn't have subtitles and, given that much of the film is in Spanish, this should've been pointed out. Wasted money!

Typical!! You wait for a great film like Traffic to come out on Amazon Video and iTunes UK and the subtitles in the Mexico scenes are all missing. Unless you know Spanish you won't have a clue what the characters are saying. Let's quick this issue fast!!!!!

It might have garnered a wheelbarrow full of academy awards but I'm afraid I just don't get it. This is a good movie but far from a great one so I suppose it might have been a bleak year in academy award terms. I won't spoil it for you by going through the heavily laden plot but don't hold your breath for a satisfying denouement to tie up the loose ends of said plot. Worth watching but not a DVD you're likely to put in the archive to watch again and again. One for the charity box I'm afraid.

This was a good film which could have been excellent except for the extended dialogue in Mexican spanish with no subtitles. Pity.

Cracking film. Subtitles don't work though, which is a bit of a pisser, considering a lot of it is in Spanish. Del Toro is the coolest man alive though.
