The first half of Blow is a shallow but lively fun ride; the audience gets a contact high. But when George's fortunes start to go from bad to worse, so does the movie.

This is one of the few drug movies where you actually feel a little sorry for the drug-dealing coke-infested lead character.

Uneven drug trade story has explicit drug use.

July 16, 2009
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.

Does the movie make us care? Not really, which is the movie's basic problem.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
September 16, 2007
Comes off like a flamboyant cartoon, another film about the deglamorization of glamorous people living it up in the glamorous world of drugs.

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.
April 29, 2006
Rambling and confused, the film shows much concern for plot and not enough for characterization, particularly in second half which unfolds as a catalog of events. Misdirected, the usually reliable Depp gives a confused and scattered performance.

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

Overall, Blow just blows.

September 26, 2002
The filmmakers are torn between presenting George's life story as a cautionary tale, or as a blast.

The biggest problem with Blow is that Jung is such a complete moron.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 10, 2002 kicky and exuberant, you'll find yourself ignoring how fundamentally botched it is. It's a mess, but a glorious mess.

I was wondering how I would feel about [Jung] at the end of the movie. My answer was this: I felt indifferent.

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.

There will certainly be worse films in theaters this year....but there will be none so tedious as Blow.
