Review: An idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) gets more than she bargained for when she is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating drug war at the border between the U.S. and Mexico. I'm gonna go ahead and say it... 'Sicario' was the best film of 2015! And that's with movies like 'The Hateful Eight,' "Inside Out," and "Mad Max: Fury Road," getting released the same year. 'Sicario' is that good. It's a tense piece of work that is intelligent, brutal and grabs you from the very first scene and never lets you go. This should have cleaned up at the Oscars, but sadly was overlooked. Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, and Josh Brolin are amazing to watch, giving performances that will stick with you long after you see them. This one is not to be missed! It's a thriller that actually thrills.

Stars (out of 4):

Fun Fact: Director Denis Villeneuve wanted Emily Blunt for the role after seeing her in The Young Victoria (2009).
