Cocaine Cowboys 2 review

This is the sequel to the documentary about the astonishing cocaine boom in the 70s, and the terrifying crime it created, especially in Miami (the real Scarface stories). It expands upon the legend of Griselda Blanco, who has probably put to death more people in America than all of the well-known serial killers put together. (And she is still alive, and not in custody.) It delivers more incredible and bizarre stories not found in the first movie. The only thing I don’t like is that in the end it still seems to promote thug life, and not thug death (or thug jail time), which is what usually happened to these young men.  Definitely watch the prequel first if this sounds interesting.  Rating: 7/10

    Thanks for posting this review. I couldn’t find anything about this movie on yahoo! movies nor rottentomatoes. I read about this woman in Maxim I believe and she sounds interesting. I saw the movie at blockbuster but didn’t scoop it. I think I will now.

    I hope you like it. The prequel about Miami is more comprehensive, but this covers more on Blanco. You’ve got some crazy reviews over on your site.
