More Info:
  • Scott Foundas

    The opening of Sicario unfolds at such an anxiety-inducing pitch that it seems impossible for Villeneuve to sustain it, let alone build on it, but somehow he manages to do just that. He’s a master of the kind of creeping tension that coils around the audience like a snake suffocating its prey.

    Variety Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The violence of the inter-American drug trade has served as the backdrop for any number of films for more than three decades, but few have been as powerful and superbly made as Sicario.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    Sicario is an ambush, a low-slung film about a dirty drugs war with Mexico which challenges and engages in equal measure. It moves with grim tenacity, confounding expectations until its very final sequence.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    Sicario starts and ends with Blunt’s impassioned performance (and she's spectacular in her final scene), but it’s Del Toro who is the real standout.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    Each set piece is orchestrated with aplomb - a raid on a tunnel under the border being a particular stand out - but Sicario is kept grounded in reality. Villeneuve keeps his focus tight on his small group of characters and though the plot is complex, it fits the Byzantine intricacies of the problem and the obscure motivations of the operators.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Blunt’s performance has an edge of steel. She brings off a mix of confidence, bewilderment and vulnerability, which functions very well against the alpha male characters higher up the chain of command.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    Amazing to look at, amazing to listen to, yet just a bit underwhelming to really think about, Sicario Denis Villeneuve's Mexican drug cartel drama is superlatively strong in every conceivable way except story.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Though Villeneuve magnifies the pervasive dread surrounding the modern drug war, he's better at conveying the thrill of creeping through that battlefield than the complex set of interests sustaining it.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    There’s not much fault to find with Sicario on the level of craft or performances, just its rather sputtering momentum, and the lack of a higher purpose.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    Pulled from the news but punched up to fever pitch, Sicario represents the perfect mix of cerebral and visceral thrills. Star, director and screenwriter all bring their A-game.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Sicario is a tentacled drug cartel thriller grabbing viewers by the throat and squeezing for two hours. This movie continually defies the conventions of its genre, from its hero's gender to the vagueness of its morality.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    A beautifully murky, hard-edged thriller. Quite simply, one of the best films of the year.

    Empire Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s an unusual mix of big-picture issues, grindhouse pulp and pure, rough entertainment, bolstered by one of the better ensemble casts of the year. This movie is not, um, fussing around.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    It’s an uncommonly bold gambit, expressly designed to frustrate people who want to see a strong woman deliver a righteous ass kicking. The progressivism here is instead rooted in futility and despair, which provides much more of a valuable shock to the system.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With a taut and timely screenplay by Taylor Sheridan, Sicario is a brilliant action thriller with the smarts of a message movie.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    The violence is shocking, effective and soaked into the dry brown landscape.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    By turns thrilling, disorienting and draining, Sicario exists in a border zone seemingly of its own devising between the art film and the action movie.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    What keeps Sicario from cynicism is the nature and depth of Villeneuve’s gaze, not childishly wide-eyed but capable still of feeling pain. He’s a terrific director. You know that if his heroine, Alice, gets out of Cartel-land alive, she might spend a few months in an asylum, but she’ll be back, hell-bent on seizing the foreground.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Those who go to a Villeneuve production, Sicario included, must be prepared for intense suspense, moral ambiguity, and an ending that doesn't conform to Hollywood norms.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The sound never loses its urgency, its sense of immediate danger, straight through to the closing shot of the film.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies) once again proves he can craft a gripping tale that never collapses under its own moral weight. Sicario is not an easy film to watch, but it is a riveting and essential one.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Sicario, which combines dizzying action scenes with a taut script, ravishing photography and an otherwordly musical score, is a knockout.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    In Spanish, "sicario" means "hitman." In film terms, Sicario is sensational, the most gripping and tension-packed spin through America's covert War on Drugs since Steven Soderbergh's Traffic 15 years ago.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Sicario calls to mind the films of the 1970s — not necessarily the ones we think of as capital-I Important, but the seamy, sweaty thrillers that subtly slipped in anti-establishmentarian messages amid the violence. It mixes arthouse and grindhouse into a most satisfying cocktail.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There are no winners here. Maybe that’s cynical, or maybe it’s true. But it’s a bleak and sometimes powerful message that Villeneuve delivers with blunt force.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Rather than a birds’-eye procedural about a complex international mission, it’s a close-up of that mission from the point of view of the participant who understands it the least.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    This dramatic thriller finds a spot somewhere between your brain and your stomach, and drills in.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Sicario is a queasy-making thrill ride through Dick Cheney’s Theme Park on the Dark Side, with an enjoyable cast headed by Blunt, Josh Brolin as a bro-tastic but oddly sinister secret agent in flip-flops and Benicio Del Toro as a person of uncertain provenance (is he Mexican? Is he Colombian? Is he CIA?) who is approximately the scariest guy ever. Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    If Sicario does not collapse under its own grimness, that is because of the pulse: the care with which Villeneuve keeps the story beating, like a drum, as he steadies himself for the next set piece.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Sicario is at its best when its borderlines are fluid and indistinct.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    I'm not sure if leavening is the right word, but Brolin, as an enigmatic U.S. agent with a world-weary cynicism and a black-ops vibe, provides at least a dose of (very) dark humor to the proceedings.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    If at any point in Sicario, you feel lost, don’t worry about it. The movie is all about being lost and, in any case, all becomes clear, eventually.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Every scene of calm, potentially, is trip-wired for an explosion. But for all its chilling tension and horrific imagery, Sicario is also a beautiful movie.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Sicario doesn't fall apart in its second half, exactly, but it does settle for less than it should.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    At times, Sicario is a deeply satisfying, intense examination of a war with no rules of engagement, driven by a spectacular performance by Benicio Del Toro and typically mesmerizing cinematography from Roger Deakins. At other times, especially in its middle act, Sicario can be frustratingly self-indulgent. Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Denis Villeneuve's film views life in the age of the modern-day drug war as an ever-crescendoing existential nightmare.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Making a film with fine performances, adept direction, first-rate photography and a doltish screenplay is like starting a rock band with no drummer. The result may yield satisfying, even memorable moments. But every time you try to build momentum, the project falls apart.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The dark nihilism of Sicario masks a reliance on easier solutions, ones we’ve been fed by decades of genre films and that feed our need for justice dispensed with violent, vengeful directness. The movie promises to clear the fetid air around the drug wars. In the end it’s just another drug.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Sicario occasionally seems a little too impressed by its own nihilism. Still, this is an involving, grown-up film from a director whose muscular technique continues to impress: one might call it pulp in the same manner one would a plate of minced meat.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Mr. Villeneuve, aided by Taylor Sheridan’s lean script, Roger Deakins’s parched cinematography and Johann Johannsson’s slow-moving heart attack of a score, respects the imperatives of genre while trying to avoid the usual clichés. It’s not easy, and he doesn’t entirely succeed.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Villeneuve's proven he's got a strong punch. The trouble is, he barely aims.
