What to Know

Critics Consensus

Rodney Hyden's quixotic quest for riches makes The Legend of Cocaine Island a mirthful adventure, although director Theo Love's stylistic flourishes are often counterproductive in conveying the inherent interest of this true story.

Robert Abele Los Angeles Times The details get repetitive, the turnabout you can see a mile away... Apr 1, 2019 Full Review Tom Ough Daily Telegraph (UK) This laughable yet laugh-inducing documentary has probably helped save him from the financial ruin that he was trying to escape with his cocaine adventure. Maybe he wasn't so stupid after all. Rated: 3/5 Apr 1, 2019 Full Review Jordan Hoffman TV Guide The Closest We've Gotten to Florida Man: The Movie Mar 29, 2019 Full Review Rohan Naahar Hindustan Times If you knew where a bag worth $2 million was buried, would you go looking for it? That's the moral dilemma that the new Netflix documentary, The Legend of Cocaine Island, throws at you, while it tells the story of the one man who actually did. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 10, 2019 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Offbeat docu has lots of drug talk, profanity. Rated: 3/5 Apr 9, 2019 Full Review Eddie Strait The Daily Dot The Legend of Cocaine Island has the elements of an insightful documentary, but a strong finished product remains out of reach. Rated: 1.5/5 Apr 2, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member The story was interesting, but I think it was at times extremely repetitive and boring, it seemed "acted", didn't felt like a documentary at all, at 2 points my wife and I were about to watch something else Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely hilarious. The humor, story and production made this a laugh a minute. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
