Netflix True Crime Doc Being Called 'Wildest S***' People Have Ever Seen

Nothing says Christmas like a Soviet submarine, cartel-themed true crime documentary and at the moment, people are pretty blown away by Operation Odessa on Netflix. Watch the trailer here:

Now the film itself isn't brand new - it came out in 2018 - but true crime fans have been getting stuck into it since it landed on the streaming service, and their reaction suggests it's definitely worth a punt.

Netflix says: "A Russian mobster, a Cuban spy and a smooth operator from Miami scheme to sell a Soviet submarine to a Colombian drug cartel for $35 million."

It's directed and produced by the same team behind The Seven Five, and it looks into a whole load of sketchy characters from Moscow to Miami, focusing on three mates - Juan Almeida, Nelson 'Tony' Yester and Ludwig 'Tarzan' Fainberg - who decide to take the bold move of hustling a Russian mob.

Alex Yasevich, an undercover agent who was investigating the three men, said in an interview: "So for these three individuals, one with the Israeli passport, one was, I believe, a Cuban, and a Venezuelan passport.

"They just walked into the base - and not only walked in the base, were given a tour of the base. This is drug traffickers, criminals getting access to a submarine base to look and see and shop for a boat in the Russian base. That's just unheard of."

A bit of a glimpse there into the madness you can expect from the film.

Twitter users are quite rightly blown away by the events they see unfold:

Operation Odessa, directed by Tiller Russell, is not only based on an entirely unbelievable story - but the three protagonists all have larger-than-life personalities.

Tarzan, Almeida and Yester have a particularly casual style of describing the life-threatening situations they've managed to get themselves in and out of - at one point, one of them impersonates drug baron Pablo Escobar to get himself out of a sticky situation.

Operation Odessa is on Netflix now.
