Looooooooong liiiiiingggering shotssszzzzz
You'd be better off reading the plot of this somewhere and saving yourself some time. But if you like watching different people driving vehicles for extended periods from a passenger's perspective, you'll love this.
The makers were obviously looking for some kind of real-time realism by keeping the camera lingering on scenes where nothing important happens, where a person is just thinking and driving. This kind of reminded me of car interior scenes in early Tarantino films (the only ones of his worth watching). However, they were more stylish and involved action and purpose.
In this movie, the okay acting is spoiled by the pointlessly long lingering shots in vehicles and elsewhere. Check out Sicario instead if you're looking for a Mexican cartel movie and avoid this one.
