Movie Info

Director Carlos Moreno (Dog Eat Dog) and screenwriter Luiso Berdejo draw inspiration from real-life events to craft this thriller about a Columbian boy who rises to power in vicious drug cartel, only to find himself forced to work for the DEA in order to stay alive. Born into poverty in a country where drug kingpins are more powerful than politicians, Martin joins the Cartel Norte del Valle in an attempt to impress the pretty Sophia. Later, with Sophia by his side, Martin watches in horror as the murder of a top boss turns his entire world upside down. Fearing for his life, Martin agrees to become an informant for the DEA - a decision that could earn him a ticket to a new life, but easily get him killed before he can cash it in. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for El cartel de los sapos (The Snitch Cartel)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

A snazzy, fast-paced pic that's nonetheless somewhat enslaved by the get-rich-quick and crime-doesn't-pay cliches that finally trip up the lowlife protags.

Top Critic

Without character definition, the film feels like a constant swish pan from one violent event to the next.

Audience Reviews for El cartel de los sapos (The Snitch Cartel)

The version I watched was English-dubbing. Plus, unsure how much had been edited out. The narrative looks all broken & being patched with scenes all the way anyway.
