Intention:
To take the TV series and turn it into a film based on the cartel plot line. La Corporacion focuses on Miguel Cadena and his struggle for power of a multi-million dollar Mexican drug cartel.
Release Information:
Digital
Cuts and Additions:
I was a big fan the TV show when it aired. It was never really given much of a chance and only lasted 6 episodes. It was certainly no Sopranos (which it was unfairly compared to), but for network TV it was a bold series that really deserved a longer run. Luckily, it got a DVD release.

Since the series itself was designed to continue after 6 episodes, there is no real ending to the plot lines. So, I created a new ending for the edit.

-all scenes involving the DEA agents, Dr. Klein, Junie and Truck Thomas removed
-some minor characters/subplots (i.e., the British scientist, a lot of Joey’s scenes, some of Manny’s voodoo, etc) removed or cut down considerably. Far too many small cuts to list them all individually.

"Have you ever held a gun, or taken a man's life, or tasted human flesh?"
Well that escalated quickly.

Finally got around to watching this. This edit takes the single-season show Kingpin from 2003 and edits it down to a 1hr 46min film. It's well edited and rapidly paced. A LOT of cuts here, but nearly all are well smoothed out and invisible. Main problem is the the story itself, it suffers from underdeveloped characters and a mediocre plot. But there is a lot less of it and Adabisi has kept it quite focussed throughout to tell a straightforward drug lord tale. I liked the closing credits, although the text went by too quickly.

Even though it's not on the same level, the show feels like a precursor to Breaking Bad whilst also showing influence from The Sopranos.

a good effort – keeps intact the more entertaining drama of kingpin.
