This action comedy film is based on the Mexican cartel. Harold Soyinka is a mild mannered businessman who works for a company which has developed a “Weed Pill” which is medical marijuana in a pill. He’s sent to Mexico to look after the manufacturing unit but while partying he’s kidnapped by the cartel, which holds a grudge against Harold’s bosses. His company hires a professional to get Harold safe and sound but the two have to face and survive some outrageous situations one after another.
This is one of my anticipated movie of the month simply because it stars one of my favourite actress Charlize Theron. Movies about the Cartel are always exciting and this one being a comedy is bound to be good.
Starring: David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton
