SICARIO. 2015.


“Everyday across that border, people are killed with his blessing. To find them would be like discovering a vaccine.” – Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro)


An ice-cold tense nail biting thriller with very detailed and realistic graphics that gets right under your skin. Presenting an insight to the drug wars between the American government and the ruthless Mexican and Columbian Narcos that stop at nothing through the eyes of the idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer. Following Kate played by one of Hollywoods best in Emelie Blunt on her new and very confidential assignment she see´s how the real world operates and the true consequences it has leaving her with experiences that change her forever. Director Denis Villenueve (Prisoners/Incendies) shows how the evil and violence spreads out into everyday life infecting the innocent people of society with this well made scary and heart beating action-fuelled-crime-drama.

“I tried to have sex with my hitman”

- Kate Macer (Emily Blunt)

Benicio Del Toro takes over every scene with his mystical and über cool presence while portraying Alejandro, the Sicario (Hitman) who seems to works for anyone who can help him hunt down those who killed his family. While Josh Brolin as Matt the laid-back quick talking“No Hablo Ingles” American defence contractor (or is he CIA?) is in top shape giving one of his best performances since No Country For Old Men. Sicario is a well-made movie with a good story delivering impressive acting and great scenery, especially the night-vision-specs scenes!


“Nothing will make sense to your American ears, but in the end you will understand.” – Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro)
