Sicario (Benicio Del Toro being an awesome hitman)

Saw this in my film class for the first time... Effing impressed.

Emily Blunt may seem to be the protagonist of this entire movie about feds hunting down druglords, but she is less than what the posters for this movie indicate. This isn't a diss on her, FYI.

The CIA is utterly harsh in taking down people involved with drug ops as well as talking down the idealism that Blunt's character espouses. Josh Brolin and Del Toro bring in pleasing performances as jerkasses who know that their targets are cold-blooded and as such, they have to be as well. Some of the Juarez scenes are either not safe for work or tearjerkish.

So, if you wanna see Benicio Del Toro become a nightmare to Mexican drug ops personnel, this is the movie.
In a year where time-travel media with discomforting, compromised timelines is apparent, one important question should be asked... Where are the Timerangers???

It's a pretty great operator movie. I've watched it probably 3 times and enjoy it every time.
