Uneven drug trade story has explicit drug use.

Johnny Depp gives a spellbindingly naturalistic performance that puts a sympathetic face on a powerfully individualistic man unable to shake a world of crime that brought him immense riches and eventually cost him everything he caredabout.

Blow isn't really a classic, but it's a sobering story well-told.

Johnny Depp stars and, despite some pretty awful makeup, nails his performance as George Jung.

A worthy companion to Traffic, which isn't all it's cracked up to be, either.

Philadelphia Weekly

...so kicky and exuberant, you'll find yourself ignoring how fundamentally botched it is. It's a mess, but a glorious mess.

Con un argumento inteligente y buenas actuaciones, es uno de esos filmes altamente recomendables que nadie debe dejar de ver.

Kalamazoo Gazette

The first two-thirds of the film fuse together the high-impact operatics of director Brian DePalma's "Scarface" and the in-your-face style of "GoodFellas"...

Não posso negar que Profissão de Risco é bem-sucedido: seu protagonista desperta simpatia. Isso é motivo de orgulho? Duvido muito.

While "Blow" certainly has its moments of greatness, it tries too hard to sell us a product we would have bought had they not pushed it too hard.

The story here is intriguing, but there is something hinted at in between the plot that really struck me.

While it's tough to buy Jung as such a nice guy when he runs with hardcore, murdering drug traffickers, Johnny Depp proves to be one heck of a salesman.

What makes the film eminently compelling is Depp's superlative lead performance.
