WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

When the CIA discovers that Mexican drug cartels are smuggling jihadi terrorists across the US border, government task force leader Matt Graver (Brolin) and former operative-turned-hitman Alejandro Gillick (del Toro) are brought in to eliminate the problem. However, when a kidnapping scheme goes awry, Alejandro finds himself going rogue as he is hunted by Graver and his new team of special operatives…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The sequel to the critical and awards darling Sicario may be sans original star Emily Blunt, but returning actors Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are able to carry us into a new mission of highly tense and eerily realistic proportions along the US-Mexico border.
