After watching SICARIO, the other movies that came to mind were THE HURT LOCKER and AMERICAN SNIPER. The actors are more than capable of delivering what was expected and the action scenes are worthy of an imax experience. But other than that, and like the 2 movies mentioned, SICARIO has nothing more to offer.
It’s not shallow. Far from it. In fact, it gives a deeper meaning to an otherwise shallow American perspective of being the international police and playing hero again. But the film was just an extended exposition of geography and characters.
The movie has the right intentions and it’s cool to look at. But the story is mediocre.
