Editorial Reviews

A notorious Colombian drug lord known for his brutal regime and ruthless habits, Pablo Escobar s life culminated in the largest manhunt in history.

Hosted by author Mark Bowden and based on his critically-acclaimed book, Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World s Greatest Outlaw (2001), the feature-length HISTORY special explores Pablo Escobar s criminal life, illuminating the pivotal moments in the drug lord s rise to power. Bowden shares startling revelations he uncovered during his exhaustive book research, while interviews with key officials of both Colombia and the United States further elaborate the tremendous rise and eventual fall of one of the world s most infamous outlaws.

Escobar s life came to a controversial end when he was gunned down on a rooftop in Medellin, Colombia, in 1993, but his story lives on in TRUE STORY OF KILLING PABLO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing down the REAL 'Scarface' April 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
'The True Story of Killing Pablo' is a fascinating History Channel documentary based on the Mark Bowden best selling book of the same name. Bowden himself is interviewed on this DVD and tells the tale of how the U.S. & Colombian governments teamed up to bring down the world's deadliest drug lord. The story plays out like a Hollywood crime thriller and will have you on the edge of your seat, even if you already know the outcome. A major motion picture is being planned with Spanish actor, Javier Bardem being considered for the role of Escobar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! You must see this to believe it.... May 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All I can say is wow! How could one human being bring a country to that point. At his death when the man exclaims 'Viva Columbia, Pablo Escobar is dead!', I understood the true meaning of what this killing meant to the people of Columbia. This is a must see video...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good insight into the hunt for Escobar January 8, 2011
Format:DVD
This documentary has limited re-enactments, which is a good thing; excellent insight by those involved. It is an informative reflection of the power Escobar held at that time and its impact on the country.

Excellent program. Interviews with people who were really there when this took place. This really shows that the Columbian officals know how to deal with criminals in their country.
