An idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is assigned to work a dangerous stretch of the US-Mexico border by her superior officer (Josh Brolin). She's exposed to the brutality of the Mexican drug cartel, and becomes partners with a defector from the cartel (Benicio Del Toro) who possesses keen knowledge about the organization. As she gets deeper into the ruthlessness and corruption surrounding the FBI sting to find the organizations leaders, her moral and professional boundaries are pushed to their breaking point. Denis Villeneuve directs this pulse-pounding crime drama, which competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.~Daniel Gelb
This film took me by surprise. A blind buy. But with this cast, it had to be great.
I have seen this film 3 times.Twice on Blu-ray once on 4Kblu-ray.
A realistic story that I'm sure really goes on. And how our government Allows let's say these agents a lot of wiggle room.
Even things that don't go by the laws of both countries.
The cast of Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, and Josh Brolin bring this film alive!. Suburb acting all the way around.
How's it look and sound..amazing!! I thought the 1080p Blu-ray was a 5 out of 5, The 4k Blu-ray smokes the 1080p Blu-ray away. With the added HDR, this movie looks like it happened in my back yard.
The sound. Both versions have a Dolby Atmos track. Which again is unbelievable. With added height channels, you are right in the action with these people. Highly recommended.
The movie has an action-packed plot and kicking story. Kate Macey, portrayed by Emily Blunt, is an amazing protagonist. I cared for her well-being especially when she was almost shot by an officer and strangled by a liaison. This is a must for anyone wanting away from cliched action movies and for those who have a crush on Jon Bernthal.
This movie was enthralling! Scene after scene... I couldn't wait for what came next! The actors; Benicio Del toro (intense), Emily Blunt (captivating), Josh Brolin (good times!), Jon Bernthal (no compromises) and others, all at the top of their game. Filled with great tension and suspense throughout, Sicario will leave you breathless, yet still wanting more.
