Great performance, solid action/directing, OK writing
19 August 2016 | by davidatom1See all my reviews

Alice Braga brings the right mix of grit/grace to the role, but the supporting cast have holes. Not action dominated, acceptable level of production (too sloppy for a movie but OK for TV), mediocre camera angles, solid lighting. As others have said, if you enjoy gritty drug dramas it does the job.

However, the dialogues are predictable and often repetitive, obvious plot holes drag this drama down. The writing makes this feel like a Latin day time drama put in the body of a gritty crime movie.

TLDR; average TV drama with incoherent plot/writing, that Alice Braga is working hard to carry.
