Escobar: Paradise Lost (2014)
Director: Andrea DiStefano
A mildly absorbing crime melodrama about an innocent Canadian guy named Nick who marries Pablo Escobar’s niece and gets sucked into the family business. A theme like this has great potential if handled the right way, but it turns out that the director prefers formula to serious drama. Irritatingly fresh-faced young Canadian (Josh Hutcherson) is hanging around on the beaches of Colombia in the early 1990s with his brother, doing not much of anything but surfing and looking like a dipshit gringo target for extortion.
