      kevin c I liked the story of this one. In a future where recreational drugs are legal, a cop tasked to stop non official drugs from the black market comes across a dead body with an unrecognized drug in them. Unfortunately this wasn't as compelling as I felt the story made it seem like it would be. Acting was decent but my interest waned halfway through. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Difficult story to follow. Too many underdeveloped characters involved. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/20 Full Review Audience Member I wanted to like it but it never came together. Sometimes simpler is better. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Certainly the mood and style of this film is worthy of a mention, but the futuristic dystopian time-travel storyline is woeful. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member There's like eight different fantastic premises at work her, not a one of which is executed effectively. Though there was some aspects to enjoy, Narcopolis unfortunately commits the cardinal sin of the entertainment industry: It's boring. Not from start to end, but frequently, particularly in the first two acts. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a bit confusing at times, but it was better than having to work.

      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Narcopolis never rises above mediocre as far as story is concerned, building to a supposedly slam-bang stunner of a finish that's nowhere near as inspired as I think the director intends it to be. Rated: 2/4 Aug 22, 2016 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times "Narcopolis" starts off intriguingly and ends solidly. It's everything else in between that isn't particularly compelling. Oct 1, 2015 Full Review Abby Garnett Village Voice There's simply too much going on to establish characters. More upsettingly - being that this is a sci-fi film - it's impossible to tell what the cool parts are supposed to be. Sep 29, 2015 Full Review John Bleasdale CineVue A film titled Narcopolis really should be more fun than Nancy Reagan's 'Just Say No' campaign. Rated: 2/5 Apr 6, 2019 Full Review Abbie Bernstein Assignment X We get strong acting, but it's in the service of what turns out to be a pretty standard police and corruption drama beneath promising sci-fi trappings. Rated: C+ Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Jennifer Heaton Alternative Lens The pacing is drab, the plot incredibly predictable (including all the huge 'twist' moments), and the whole production has an amateurish veneer ...
