Sicario – Review

The meaning of Sicario is a hitman often hired by Latin American mafias to kill someone and that’s how you will understand the entire plot of the movie. If you have watched Narco tv series(It’s about the life of Pablo Escobar), you will understand clearly what’s the problem the American’s are facing.


Synopsis (Warning: May contain spoilers, duh!) 

The Gist of It: Sicario which comprises Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal and Emily Blunt is about a personal fight of each individual to combat against the drug cartels. An emotional acting by Emily Blunt and the ice cold character by Benicio Del Toro makes it an even match and with Josh Brolin’s smart ass attitude just completes the movie.


Kate Mercer has been combating the drug cartels ever since she joined the 5-0. However her recorded of busting all the cases seems to be good, she in the other hand don’t feel the same. The rookie feels that what ever she action is, it’s don’t even scratch the surface of the drug problems.
Her actions however got noticed by the higher ups and thats when Matt(incharge of a special task to put an end to the drug problems) met Kate. His methods seems questionable but however so far it has been effective.


Together with Alenjandro – Matt’s counterpart from Columbia, both men use Kate for her intelligent of the local area and her skills. Kate however has some issue with Alenjandro which she can’t put on what is that. Is that she feels Matt and Alenjandro is hiding a different motive.

CR- Review

Even thou as audience, you might think the story is about Kate but the geniuses behind the film manages to twist the focus of the film. Well that is what you get when Denis Villeneuve is directing the movie. Denis has been critical in his movies and so far it has serve him well. Sicario is taken to a different height thanks to actors in it especially  Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. Josh who plays Matt seemed to be a happy go lucky person but in actual is a critical thinker and what seemed to be a waste a time to others is actually his method in gathering info and getting one step ahead. Same goes to Benicio who plays Alenjandro – at first you think he is on your side all along but just when you get close to him, he just turn around and bite you. sicario2
If you love guns, drugs and drama this is the movie for you


Despite it’s low marketing on this movie(for good reason, there is crazy shoot outs in this movie) it a movie you must not miss. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro acting is top notch and must not to be missed. Emily Blunt in our opinion is looks blur like how always look but it’s acceptable.

Rating: 8.0/10
Favourite Line: “Providing a measure of order that we could control”
