Javier (Benicio Del Toro)and Manolo are part of the local law enforcement in Mexico and they get recruited by the general Salazar during a drug bust to carry out his work to get rid of the Tijuana cartel. Montel (Don Cheadle) and Ray (Luis Guzman) are DEA agents trying to bust a drug network on the side of the border. Robert Wakefield is the newly appointed drug czar in the US and his daughter has a drug problem herself. This is where the movie starts off. Three different stories running parallel to each other but has a weird connection. Don't expect them to all clash together for one big climax because that's not gonna happen. However, the script is pretty tight and weaves a complex tale of drug trafficking from three different perspectives. There is collateral damage in all three stories as a result of being part of this war on drugs. The viewer is not forced to accept the writer's view on drugs but is given an opportunity to come up with their own conclusion on what can be done on how to deal with the drug problem. Benicio Del Toro and Don Cheadle give strong performances that could be award worthy. Catherine Zeta Jones also gives a strong performance as she is forced to transform from a suburban mom to a ruthless gangster in figuring out a way to get her husband out of prison and so that her life can go back to normal. Soderbergh has done an outstanding job with this movie as it doesn't seem like the movie could have gotten any better. For anyone interested in movies with a bit of crime , drama and thrills, don't miss this one.
