Deep in Colombia where cocaine and drug lords rule the DEA is chasing the newest innovation in smuggling… submarines.
Eric Meyers and assorted unidentified DEA or government agents.
Colombian drug producers do their best to stay one step ahead of the government as shown by their newest method of transporting drugs out of the country… submarines. Known as narcotics submarines or “narco-subs” these machines have seen many design improvements since their introduction and are capable of carrying several tons of cocaine in addition to a modest crew at respectable speeds. Initially designed as semi-submersible the newest designs are able to submerge to depths of up to 30 feet. Valued up to one-million dollars, capturing one of these machines can be a nice coup for the DEA.
As a National Geographic production there wasn’t any real acting in this one but the narration and interviews were fairly well done.
Camera work considering the conditions in which filming took place was well done with good clear shots and perspective. Sets were the natural jungles of Colombia which is quite beautiful and dense but being ruined by clandestine fuel operations for the narco-subs. Sound and soundtrack were well done.
Cocaine Sub Hunt is an interesting look at submarine narcotics trafficking with the only disappointment being that there were no drug busts. The fact these people are building seaworthy submarines in a jungle using household appliances and fiberglass is amazing.
Nothing here to limit audience age.
