    Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who plays everything by the rule book---maybe because she is a woman , and in my experience women are more prone to live by the rules than men are . She and her partner discover gruesome corpses while on a raid and two of her team are killed in a explosion . Her boss recommends her to CIA officer ( played by Josh Brolin ) who is searching for those responsible including the boss of the drug cartel . Emily thinks that she is making no difference to the fight against drugs in her current position , and hence joins Josh .

    But after joining Josh's team Emily comes to know that the location of the raids that Josh's team conducts are totally different from what she and her partner expected , and soon realises that things simply not what they seem to be...but by now it's too late to backtrack from the mission....She finds herself as a lone woman in a team full of hard men .

    Along with them comes a enigmatic person played by Benicio Del Toro , who plays a real deep character who has a lot to hide , especially from Emily . He is the surprise element in the movie , and the CIA along with Josh plan to use him to achieve what they want . But what they want is something that shocks and stuns you when it is revealed , especially because people at high levels in the USA have approved of their extra legal methods .

    So what does Josh and his team want ?? What is Benicio's role in this ??
    And most importantly , why do they want Emily to be with them in their operations ??
    As these things get revealed , it gets mighty interesting out there....

    The soundtrack in which the film is played out is in a pulsating rhythm , the pulsations getting louder as things get tense and weaker as things settle down for a while before exploding again . The landscape is bleak , but the photography is top class and makes it appear real interesting .

    Emily Blunt looks attractive and Josh Brolin looks handsome , and Benicio looks like a noble of a warrior kingdom---a dark horse .
    Acting wise , it is obvious that the film been tailormade to give maximum scope to Benicio's acting---and credit is to be given to him for using the opportunity given to him fully . Emily is good too and Josh is okay . Daniel Kaluuya gives a sold performance as Emily's partner in FBI .

    It is grimly realistic film , and it's violence has a stark feel to it . The weapons ( like automatic rifles with night vision scopes ) used look deadly and their technology menacing . It cannot be called a regular entertainer , But those who like these kind of gritty realistic films will root for it .

    Verdict---Good .
    Three and a half stars .

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
