An egomaniacal self-tribute written and bankrolled by a man with a taste for epic mythologizing.
Illuminates a fascinating subculture of Colombia and of global commerce but is saddled with a ham-fisted script and stilted performances.
Hayata's story in all its myriad implications might well have been better told in documentary form.
Though the story is engaging, the writing and acting are as unsophisticated.
Having written, co- directed and played the lead in this awkward, ego-driven memoir, Hayata has turned a genuinely compelling life story into an embarrassing vanity production.
Thanks to the amateurish, spectacularly talent-free quality of its cinematography, direction, writing and acting, Emerald Cowboy is simply impossible to sit through.
Leaden and poorly acted.
The location camerawork and story are outstanding, but amateurish acting and editing keep this dreamy mess from feeling like a proper movie.
The acting is weak, largely because many of the performers seem uncomfortable speaking English.
'Emerald Cowboy' displays its subject's single-minded pursuit of his goal and introduces a fascinating but little known world of corruption.
Though Mr. Hayata seems convinced that he is a colorful, romantic figure, the movie itself is crushingly mundane and unlikely to attract any audience beyond close relatives.
Muddled script and leaden acting.
