This movie doesn’t follow the liberal narrative of what goes on at the U.S. Mexican border so it’s sure to upset those open border folks. Looking forward to seeing this one!
“Nothing will make sense to your American ears. But in the end, you will understand.”
Those are the words that are told to Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) as she voluntarily embarks on a mission to take on the Mexican drug cartels that have creeped slowly into the American south.
However, those words were not exclusively for Kate. If not more so, this message was for the viewer of Sicario, as Director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) exposes the unknown and uncovered war going on between the American-Mexican border that no one wants to speak of.
As the leading woman on her FBI Special Weapons and Tactics Team and the leading (nearly only) woman in Sicario, Kate begins breaking down doors in the United States to homes that have been bought up and used as human kidnapping quarters for the Mexican drug cartel.
Soon after, Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) wants Kate to join what she understands as a Department of Defense (DOD) mission to actually scratch the surface in finding the lead men responsible for the Mexican drug cartel infiltrating Texas and Arizona.
This is where Kate meets Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) and begins to question everything that she has just signed up for. As the team heads into Mexico, Kate realizes that this is not the mission she assumed it was.
