Synopsis
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.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"Denis Villeneuve’s SICARIO is an extreme, brutal, complex and sometimes sickeningly violent story of its time, one of the best movies about the dominance of drugs in our culture since Steven Soderbergh’s TRAFFIC."
Richard Roeper (21 Sep 2015, )
Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "A beautifully murky, hard-edged thriller. Quite simply, one of the best films of the year."
Dan Jolin (2 Oct 2015, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "SICARIO is a deeply satisfying, intense examination of a war with no rules of engagement, driven by a spectacular performance by Benicio Del Toro and typically mesmerizing cinematography from Roger Deakins."
Brian Tallerico (15 Sep 2015, )
Rolling Stone
"SICARIO is sensational, the most gripping and tension-packed spin through America's covert War on Drugs since Steven Soderbergh's TRAFFIC 15 years ago."
Peter Travers (17 Sep 2015, )
Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "SICARIO fires on just about every level, from Jóhannsson’s supple score to Roger Deakins’ desert-scorched cinematography to Sheridan’s pared-to-the-bone script."
Matt Glasby (5 Oct 2015, )
