> One of the finest movie about the raids on cartel gangs.
This was really a great film. Fighting against the drug trafficking was the theme. The story of an FBI agent who was recruited to work in an elite force that no one knows its existence. Their’s aim is to tackle the main source, instead to deal with its lower order. Something that impossible to do without international cooperation. Every raid is done in secretively, sometime if required at any cost in whatever effort to stop it. Like I said, this was an awesome movie, and good to see it after the documentary like ‘Cartel Land’.
The story is kind of hard to detail it out, because it was more an action movie than the talking. How a special force unit goes after the bad guys and stops them is the main plot. But the characters were so distinctive, every main roles had their own agenda for what they are doing and that’s how the narration dominated with the high standards.
The cast who played them were simply outstanding, including that starts with Emily Blunt, who is someone looks changed the attitude to play physically challenging roles after ‘Edge of Tomorrow’. And then Josh Brolin and another one, an upcoming young British actor who I really don’t know, but Benicio Del Toro was actually the show stealer.
His part was unexpectedly great, totally raw and aggressive. Especially the his end scene, no one could have guessed it, but that’s how the way it is. No doubt any top actors would have denied to perform that, anyway well shot with minimum violence, but the intention was very clear as fighting against the dark forces to cut off the head first. One of the best movie of the year, so definitely recommended if you’re interested.
An stereotypical plot with, somehow, some interesting addition.
The plot is not superb but the script is really good, Del Toro makes a good performance and, as alway, a great pleasure to watch any movie with Emily Blunt on it. Great performance.
The directing is also really good and the soundtrack is remarkable, creating quite an atmosphere.
Finally, the action scenes are very well done, with a sense of contempt. No fireworks here, just something that can be the closest to reality.
Tense, intelligent drama, with thriller overtones
The badlands of the US – Mexico border and the viciousness of the drug trade running across it sets the background and the tone for this movie. It’s grim. Human life is very cheap and the movie doesn’t flinch from showing consequences. There are definitely some scenes that are not for the faint hearted, but there is nothing gratuitous here. If anything – despite the subject matter – the film goes out of its way to avoid Hollywood heroics.
Emily Blunt does an amazing job portraying Kate Macy, a career policewoman heading a SWAT team. Her accent slips slightly a couple of times, but otherwise she’s utterly believable as born and raised in the deep south of the US. Kate is a fundamentally decent, honorable human being, trying to the right thing in a world where the rule book doesn’t seem to work any more. She’s smart, tough, and experienced – but right from the start of the movie, it’s clear that she’s in over her head.
The tension never lets up. An attack could come at any moment, from any direction. Anything could be a trap. All of it, no matter how extreme something is, plays as real. The director manages scenes expertly to avoid any clean and easy action movie clichés, and it pays off enormously as the movie goes on.
It’s also a highly intelligent movie, made for an intelligent audience. It doesn’t lay things out on a plate. Instead you have to pay attention and you have to think, just as Kate has to – because her first mistake could be her last.
Staging, costuming, sets, cinematography, and lighting are all perfect. Some airborne shots in particular stand out as both daring and stunningly original, clearly showing just how harsh the landscape is, while managing to propel the story forward – without showing anyone, no less. This part of the movie is in the “As good as it gets” category. The only part that I didn’t like (and the reason that this doesn’t get a 10 from me) was the music. It’s used deliberately to heighten tension during some scenes which would otherwise break the feel of the movie, and generally it’s done well, but some scenes are spoiled with a There Will Be Blood styled screech. It’s really not needed, especially since Sicario’s own score manages to build or maintain tension quite successfully in other parts of the movie while remaining low-key.
To my mind, this is much more of a drama than it is a thriller. It’s certainly not an action movie. The acting from the support cast is exactly what it needs to be – good in general, and great when a minor character is the focal point – but look closely at how much Benicio del Toro manages to do with no dialogue and not even all that much movement. Simply amazing.
This is a great movie to see if you want to be challenged.
Strong and Raw
Strong, raw and very well acted, enough ingredients to go and watch it. The script is very interesting, because unravels in a nonlinear process how Blunt and Del Toro become perfect nemesis. The film also shows the crudeness of the American border where anything can happen and that there are no limits to human misery. On the technical side, it was perfectly filmed, has appropriate sound effects and the soundtrack increases the tension of the whole movie. I recommend it, as long as someone is willing to accept very crude scenes, cause it is one of those movies where you immerse and lose consciousness of time and fell one more of the cast.
