Sicario ★★★

Sicario is a screenplay which doesn't say much, that is shored up by excellent acting, direction and cinematography.

I really wanted to be wowed by the story, but it turns into a fairly typical revenge-with-CIA-help plot, where Blunt's character is reduced to victimised observer.

It's tense, it's atmospheric, and it's confused.

Shame.
