Sicario(by Denis Villeneuve) Is a Sick and Slick Exercise Combining Seriousness with Sensationalism
Villeneuve is a real pro, and his treatment is a sleek operation. It is also soulless and predictable. Why did it need the Emily Blunt character who only stands around as an observer? The mystery man played by Del Toro has aura and presence but nothing of interest or depth.
If the point of the film is that the Drug War is a real mess with lots of grey areas, I think we know that already. Better off reading an article than watching this movie.
