What does ‘Sicario’ mean?

The most direct translation from Spanish to English for sicario is “hitman.” The word is most often used to describe the hitmen associated with the Mexican drug cartels, and they don’t have the friendliest reputation.

Emily Blunt’s role…

Emily Blunt stars as Arizona-based FBI agent Kate Macer, a young workaholic who we meet in the opening moments of the film as she’s leading a SWAT team on a raid looking for hostages. What she uncovers is linked to a menacing drug cartel in Mexico.

..and plot in brief

Mysterious government contractor Matt (Josh Brolin) sees potential in her and brings her on board to his team attempting to bring down the cartel, a team which includes the film’s eponymous hitman, Alejandro (Benicio del Toro). Macy soon realizes she’s become involved in something far more nefarious and far-reaching than she could’ve ever imagined.

Hot problem

As you see, the movie is about the war on drugs that began with a speech given by U.S. President Richard Nixon in 1971, and has since provided justification for millions incarcerated at home and billions in military intervention abroad.

The shadow world

Part of what makes Sicario so compelling is Villeneuve’s commitment to detail in the world he finds himself operating in. Centering his story on the shadow warriors of the elite Tier One units of the FBI and their fellow law enforcement organizations, Villeneuve takes the time to get their look and actions right, from the kit that they wear to their weapons and tactics. Everything works to create a believable world that will both fascinate and scare audiences.
