During the mid 1980s, Howard Marks had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines, and twenty five companies trading throughout the world. Bars, recording studios, offshore banks: all were money-laundering vehicles serving the core activity: dope dealing. At the height of his career, he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tons from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organizations as diverse as the CIA, MI6, the IRA, and the Mafia.

Didn't match the synopsis very closely. Rather dull. All the best bits are in the preview. I found it a bit interesting at the end that it's based on a real person.

I feel like I've been conned again the movie itself bore no resmblance to the "offical review above" do they actually watch the dvd or just take thier reviews from other resources, as a movie it was just so so.

Working class kid gets a place in Oxford, gets turned onto drugs and becomes a trafficker. Biopic of the life and crimes of Howard Marks that while largely entertaining doesn’t really do justice to the subject matter. The production values are fairly poor and the narrative is a bit too fragmented.

Not as good as I expected. It was ok, but could have been better and I almost lost interest in the first 20 minutes. The write up was totally different to the movie which I expected to be about all his alias's,so many different phones, etc but that was barely in it
