    If the story of how Sinaloa Cartel boss El Chapo got re-captured on Friday wasn't already sufficiently cinematic, you can now watch video of the early-morning assault that eventually brought him down, courtesy of Mexican TV show Primero Noticias, as ABC News reported.

    The raid ultimately lasted about 15 minutes and left five Chapo associates dead (and one Marine injured). The government apparently made GoPro footage culled from the helmet worn by a Marine involved in the raid available to TV network Televisa. True to form, Chapo—known for pioneering the use of tunnels in the drug trade—snuck out a secret compartment behind a mirror into a tunnel with a top deputy. They then stole a car before being captured by federal cops.

    Chapo—real name Joaquín Guzmán Loera—reportedly wanted to make a biopic with admirers in the movie biz while he was out. That at least begins to help explain why he would dare meet up with actor Sean Penn for a jungle chat (the Rolling Stone story was published to much controversy on Saturday.)

    For now, Chapo will have to make do with this brief (albeit plenty violent) documentary treatment.

    That's really the least of it. Those two guys may have been part of an undercover surveillance team operating in the area with specific knowledge of the targets. To have them join in the raid would make sense. On a macro level, I'm more concerned that they didn't have all the avenues of egress covered before initiating the raid. And they were sloppy in their tactics as well. Note how often one team member covers another with their muzzle while maneuvering from room to room. They also put an awful lot of faith in the ability of those walls to stop rifle rounds. Check out the action at around the 11:45 mark. You'll see two guys clearing a wall of built-in closets in a bedroom while two of their teammates are detaining a suspect in the bathroom that's directly behind the closet. That's just bad training.

    At the end of the day though, they got the job done and captured their man. So credit where credit's due.

    If that house is a lease i don't think they are getting their deposit back. And what is up with the narrow hallways, definitely not a house for Eric The Midget.

    Yeah, I know. That's why I specified "at the end of the day". ;)

    Gotta give them Mehikan Policia some props. These ones did not get El Chapo's cash infusion.
