This was a pretty intense movie with lots of good drama. The plot is about an elite team of American special force troops sent into Juarez, Mexico to avenge 20-30 murders committed in the United States (Phoenix, Arizona) by a Mexican drug cartel. Kate, who is the main actress in the movie, clearly a skilled DEA officer but she has never been on such a top-secret mission before.
She is recruited (technically she volunteered but under some duress) to join this elite team to go into Juarez and get the evil drug lord. As the team makes the journey to Juarez the tension of the movie builds because something just doesn’t feel right with this lady. The other team members seem to not be telling her the complete story. The mystery of what’s really happens builds throughout the movie.
The photography in the movie is amazing with lots of cool scenery of attack helicopters, military bases and other rugged action. The soundtrack is exciting and keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat.
Overall, Sicario was entertaining and I will give this movie an 8 out of 10 potential Steelers Stars.
