Comments: I really liked this one, mostly because of Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro. Jeffrey Donovan was great too, for a few scenes and then disappeared from the flick. Strangely, Josh Brolin was pretty bad. The story of what they were doing was clear but the plot points describing it were pretty forced, and vague. Overall I think Villeneuve is an intriguing film maker who rarely succeeds at getting beyond being intriguing.

Summary: In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by an elite government task force official to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
