What have I seen on Netflix? Narcos: Mexico


This week I finished watching the premiere of the new season of Narcos: Mexico on Netflix and I have to say that I liked it very much, improving, in some aspects, its predecessor Narcos: Colombia.
One of those important aspects is that the main actors are Mexican and of Mexican origin and that detail gives a special value to this new installment of Narcos, endowing it with its own personality and distinguishing it from previous installments of the series. This was one of the aspects that was criticized in Narcos: Colombia, that the main actors were not Colombians.
The truth is that the series begins with a slow rhythm, but this is a resource that the film director does on purpose, because, as the series advances, the rhythm increases vertiginously as the plot grows, which develops along with the main character, Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo who plays the Mexican actor Diego Luna.
In short, Narcos: Mexico has nothing to envy of its predecessor and is a worthy successor to this shocking series.


Produced by: Gaumont Télévision and Netflix.
Directed by: Alonso Ruizpalacios, Amat Escalante and Andi Baiz.
Script: Carlo Bernard, Chris Brancato, Doug Miro, Clayton Trussell, Andrew Black, Ashley Lyle, Eric Newman, Bart Nickerson, Jessie Nickson-Lopez, Scott Teems.
Date: 2018.
Cast: Diego Luna, Michael Peña, Tenoch Huerta, Joaquín Cosío, Alyssa Diaz, José María Yazpik, Matt Letscher.
Duration: ten chapters of approximately one hour each.


This new issue of Narcos tells us how Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo mounts, almost out of nowhere, the Guadalajara cartel, planting and distributing "mota", marijuana, and manages to unite all the small traffickers in the area with a common goal, with the connivance of the Mexican police.
However, the DEA follows him closely and agent Kiki Camarena, starring Michael Anthony Peña, does everything possible to end the Guadalajara cartel.
