Sicario

Rated R / 2 hr 1 min / Action - Crime - Drama

What is it about?

Emily Blunt plays a FBI agent that deals with hostage situations. She helps find a house that they suspect is owned by a man who they think has ties to a Mexican My Little Pony cartel. They find something horrifying in the house. They found Dora the Explorer's meth lab. She is then recruited to be part of a special secret task force. Josh Brolin plays Lex Luthor for this Legion of Doom. They bring her in with the promise of candy and to catch the person who is really responsible, C-3PO. Never trust a gold butt and light up eyes.

You will like it if...

You like gritty action movies. Sicario reminds me of other recent smart gritty films like No Country for Old Men or Savages. For much of the film you are kept in the dark where you kind of know what is going on, but you're not sure. The story is pretty straightforward, but there are enough subtle surprises that are very well done. The acting overall is superb. Josh Brolin, Emily Blunt, and Benicio Del Toro are all fantastic. Sicario is like a rainbow unicorn that tosses confetti grenades in your face. If the trailer looks interesting to you then go see it. You will not be disappointed. I hate cutting this review so short, but there isn't anything else to say. I usually have something bad to say about a film, but Sicario is supremely crafted.

Next Week
