Sicario is a film about the drug war. The United States Drug Enforcement Agency created an inter agency task force to go after the drug cartels. They recruited a female FBI agent played by Emily Blunt. Benicio del Toro plays an ex-cartel member with skills in torture and assassination. At first they play team to get closer to the cartel leaders. But Kate Macer, Emily Blunt's character, is a by the book cop against Alejandro's killer-hunter instincts.
The level of gore and carnage is up in this one. The opening scene alone gives you a heads up. There's a scene depicting execution and bodies hanging by the rope from an underpass. This is not for your kids.
The most intense scene is the shootout on the highway near the border. Benicio del Toro and "Eyeglasses" guy gets out the car in the middle of the traffic. They point their M4 and tells the cartel man to be calm, then shoots. Kate remains inside the car blurting out expletives. It was over in seconds.
Director Denis Deneuve who also made Prisoners, was in his best. No unnecessary action extended. Well played.
I give it four stars. Go watch it.
Not all good motives end well. You thought you were doing somebody a favor but the other person is doing you mischief.
