Viral Marketing or Confusion?

To quote the official Meddellin site:

"Vincent Chase delivers an astonishing Scarface-caliber performance in a brilliantly told story by Billy Walsh."

Obviously the comparison between Medellin and Scarface is evident, but Scarface, forgive the cursing here, is a pretty fucking fine film. And as Medellin is not, why is the comparison being proposed? Or is it actually a good film? In the season finale of the fourth season, we were treated to the last shot of Meddellin. Pablo Escobar torturing some poor soul, the camera angling a tight close-up shot of his sun glasses.

I don't know about anyone else, but that wasn't a bad shot. However, I can't speak for the rest of the film. But the official site can. I understand that the official site (and I'm talking in Entourage world here) would only slap a good review up, but how can anyone like the film as it was unanimously hated? Then again, was it? We only heard Dana and Yair put the film down.

What I'm trying to say here at best is this: while we're eagerly anticipating the next season of Entourage, are they trying to confuse us? Because knowing Billy and his utter disgust for Queen's Boulevard's disastrous cut, he wouldn't change a damn thing. After all, he does have final cut.
