This crime drama is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who made the OKish Prisoners (and who is now currently directing the Blade Runner sequel!), Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro and Emily Blunt act their way through a drugs crime movie set in Mexico near the US border. Centered around Emily’s character joining the CIA to bring down a drug lord in the city of Juarez (which was a nasty place, its a bit better now according to the Mayor) she gets caught up in all sorts of mischeif.
Benicio enjoys himself, and Emily does great job. It’s pretty gripping stuff even though there are only a couple of action bits.
