hackneyed beginning, eye-rolling ending, surprisingly compelling in-between.
Weak-stomached bureaucrats bring the gang back to start an inter-cartel war in Mexico to reduce human-trafficking of fundamentalist terrorists across the border.
Things go a bit dodgy and tricky situations ensue.
There’s barely anything in this film that can’t be solved by violence. This rather undermines some of the critical greyness and tension that Sicario had. However, this does have its grey and dark parts.
The best scene has to be where Alejandro (del Toro) asks a Mexican chap for help in the desert. Great to see sign language in a regular movie.
Worth seeing if you don’t have to go too far out of your way.
