Sicario is heavy on action and gritty realism. This is without a doubt, one of the best movies out this year.

Story: During a routine but dangerous raid in a dusty, sun-baked town close to the US-Mexico border, two of agent Kate Macer's (Blunt) squad members are killed by an IED. She had also stumbled upon a rather unsettling discovery inside the house they were raiding. Macer then volunteers to be part of a strike group whose mission is to take down a drug cartel.

Review: Be it the fact that this film deals with modern-day drug wars along the US-Mexico border, or the movie's ominous tone, you might find yourself reminded about both Steven Soderbergh's Traffic (that also starred Del Toro) and - also directed by Villeneuve - Prisoners at various points during the movie. The former for the content (drug wars) and the latter, for the pacing and immersion. But that's where any semblance of common ground ends.

For starters, the perspective in Sicario is entirely different. The movie is a revelatory look at not only the vast and complex nature of the drug trade in that part of the world, but it also highlights the unorthodox means the good guys (read: the authorities) have to take to try and dismantle, or more realistically, cripple the trade.

After stumbling upon something decidedly dangerous during an operation in Chandler, Arizona during which two FBI agents are killed, Macer (a Special Weapons and Tactics hotshot) volunteers to join an elite team created by the Department of Defense to take the fight to a cartel boss' doorstep. Macer wants revenge but she also wants to do it by the book. But Matt Graver (Brolin, completely on point here), a DoD potentiary, has no qualms about bending rules. As does his partner, a Colombian named Alejandro (Del Toro, fantastic) who speaks little but gets a lot done. On her first mission, Macer realizes that they will actually be heading to Juarez in Mexico, rather than El Paso. It's the first of many surprises she's going to have.

Sicario is heavy on action and gritty realism. This is without a doubt, one of the best movies out this year.

One time watch.

Seriously ?? Is this really a movie ...or some documentary ??? There is absolutely nothing thrilling or adventurous happening...and the FBI is so listless. That FBI heroine is obviously there only for glamor value...and not a good one at that too, sadly.
