What do the critics think?


8 reviews of Sicario (2015)

  • 1. Fredrik Fyhr
    8.7 / 10

    It is an incredibly skilled study in silent psychological terror, and the most austere imaginable suspense, for adults who dare to look down the barrel of a gun.

    The central characters are multifaceted. It's not entirely clear who is on the side of the good and the evil. And Villeneuve doesn't work like other directors.

    The man behind "Prisoners" and "Enemy" has delivered yet another tangled and thought-provoking contemporary thriller.

    8 / 10

    It is so effective, so softly pulsing, so restrained aggressive, so nagging unpleasant, that I sit here longing to get home and hug my daughter.
