Goofs

When Matt travels to recruit Alejandro, the establishing shot reads 'Bogota, Colombia'; however, the scene clearly takes place in 5 de Mayo street in downtown Mexico City. Besides characteristic buildings, there is a Vittorio Forti (A Mexican gentleman's clothes retailer) billboard, and another one, showing Palacio de Bellas Artes, a prominent cultural center located a few blocks away.

Another great one from Sheridan
28 June 2018 | by allstarrunnerSee all my reviews

I loved this film. If you are a fan of Taylor Sheridan and have seen his other films (Hell or High Water, Wind River) then you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. If you liked those films then you will surely like this film - of course, if you weren't fans of those films than don't expect anything different here!

As most of his films go, the pacing is slow as the story plays out - but I never feel bored. The acting, of course, is top notch. Benicio and Brolin are absolutely perfect bringing their characters to life.

Personally, I enjoyed this more than the first Sicario - although only because I found Emily Blunt's character to be annoying.

The bottom line is that this film is definitely worth paying the money to see in the theater.
