August 20, 2015 Surprisingly forgettable considering its mesmering villain, although Del Toro sparks the movie into life with what screentime he does get.Read in Source

April 05, 2016 There are few actors that commit to their roles as much as Benecio Del Toro... as he demonstrates quite spectacularly at times as one of the most infamous drug-lords of the past century in Escobar: Paradise Lost.Read in Source
Kate Muir Times (UK)
August 20, 2015 The movie contains a subtly crazed performance from Benicio del Toro as Escobar: one moment fooling around with his children in the hacienda swimming pool, fondling his gold taps, the next executing his enemies.Read in Source

June 26, 2015 [Del Toro is] really very good here, as he almost always is, no matter the quality of the film around him. The rest of the movie? Not so much.Read in Source

June 25, 2015 Hutcherson, who's best known for being overshadowed by Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games series, is equally dominated here. But that suits the unequal relationship of guileless Nick and calculating Pablo.Read in Source

June 25, 2015 When you have the fortune of landing an actor like Del Toro, it's almost criminal to spend so much time watching the scales fall from an innocent's eyes when we could be watching a master actor convey quiet, sleepy-eyed, mumbling menace.Read in Source

June 26, 2015 Escobar: Paradise Lost, as promising as it often is, feels like two barely connected half-movies.Read in Source
Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times
June 25, 2015 Nick might usurp most of the screen time, but it's Mr. Del Toro, face flickering from benevolent to vicious and body heaving with literal and symbolic weight, who seizes the film.Read in Source

May 31, 2016 It's a shame that Escobar: Paradise Lost devotes so much screentime to its invented hero, because the portions with del Toro can be very fine indeed.Read in Source
