Escobar: Paradise Lost is a 2014 movie directed by Andrea Di Stefano. It focuses on the story of Nick, a Canadian surfer, falling in love with the niece of real-life drug dealer Pablo Escobar. Although Nick (or any boyfriend of an existing niece) never existed, the movie is based on real events of Escobar's and Colombia's political and criminal life, as well as some behaviour depicted in the movie.


The following weapons were used in the film Escobar: Paradise Lost:



Beretta 92FS

Beretta 92FS pistols are widely seen in the hands of various thugs throughout the movie. However, this pistol is also used by Nick (Josh Hutcherson), when given by Escobar (Benicio del Toro), with the particularity of being a custom nickel version (as it is shiny and not matte as a genuine Inox version) and fitted with pearl grips. Nick later takes another one, a regular model, from a police officer, using the pistols in an akimbo way. The "FS" version is confirmed with a clear shot on the slide's markings, and is not anachronistic, with the end of the movie being set in June 1991.

Typical latino gun. Note the strange trigger behaviour, being in the "cocked hammer" position, while the hammer itself is not.

Custom Beretta 92F

Drago Gutiérrez (Carlos Bardem), Escobar's head of the sicarios (killers), carries a custom Beretta 92FS Inox pistol. It is fitted with an ALGIMEC compensator, a sound suppressor and an extended magazine equipped with some kind of grip extension. Funnily enough, it is very similar to Léon's (Jean Reno) Beretta in Léon: The Professional, as they are both fitted with compensators and suppressors.

Javier Bardem sure looks like his older brother Carlos.

Beretta 93R

During a shootout, one of Escobar's sicarios is seen firing a Beretta 93R in the 3-round burst mode. It was previously seen laying on a table.

M1911 pistols

Several 1911 pistols are seen laying on a table, along with one next to a dead thug. Nick is also given one for "self defense purpose".
