FBI Agent Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) is on assignment to find kidnapped civilians when her team enters a house and finds it filled with dozens of dead bodies. A Mexican drug lord is responsible for the carnage and Kate is invited to join a drug force team to take the drug lord and his cronies down.

She accepts the offer and joins two members of a government task force (Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin) on their mission, but soon finds herself in over her head when she gets a first-hand view into the violent and dangerous world of international drug trafficking.

  • 3 stars "It was evenly paced. I wanted to watch it because I wanted to see a French Canadian film director work with some great actors and an interesting topic. It makes you feel like the war on drugs is a complete waste of time. The movie was interesting and had a lot of tension, but the over-arching topic made me feel like what a waste of life. Families die at the hand of someone else who is avenging a death or it's just in the name of drugs and drug money. I want to write so much of what I feel is wrong with drugs/drug users/ and the people who battle the drug Overloads but it'd be futile. Overall the movie was certainly one I would love to debate. Acting was great."
  • 2 stars "Boring.... It did not come together good at all. The movie had very little substance to it."
  • 5 stars "Just one of the best movies so far! all the people who did not like the movie have no clue that this happens for real in Mexico."
