Review from the comment
You can chop it up (no pun intended) any way you like. Sicario grabs you by the lapels in the first ten seconds of the film and never lets go. It is a 100% knuckle biting thriller that focuses on the drug war south of the border. Fueled by an Oscar worthy performance by Benicio Del Toro, you simply can't find many movies better than this. Another major plus for Sicario is the cinematography. The film contains several beautifully shot scenes which were simply stunning. I would have to go back and take a look, but Sicario most likely is my favorite film of 2015.
