Good story ruined by poor direction

Very distracting movie making. I would not suggest anyone to see it.

Entertaining documentary and one hell of a story

Netflix is going to end up responsible for inspiring a generation of drug dealers or criminal enterprises - but damn, these documentaries are as oddly addictive as the drugs they feature. "The Legend of Cocaine Island" is in a similar vein to "Operation Odessa", though not quite as crazy and less charismatic. The main guy here (Rodney) just comes across as a somewhat unlikable, fat, greedy guy who pretends to be remorseful for his greed-fuelled actions. The supporting cast of characters is far more interesting - Andy and Dee in particular. The doco keeps a good pace and it's certainly a larger-than-life story that is hard to look away from. Who doesn't love a good treasure hunt story? This time, the "treasure" just happens to be $2 million worth of cocaine. "The Legend of Cocaine Island" is as much an ode to the art of storytelling as it is a crime documentary - each person here knows how to spin a story. How much of it is actually true - who knows? But it's entertaining nonetheless! The ambiguous ending was an intriguing way to wrap things up - and certain to boost "tourism" numbers in Puerto Rico.
