Action/Drama: To try to start a war among Mexican drug cartels who are smuggling illegal immigrants and possibly terrorists across the border, covert U.S. government agents and their operatives kidnap a cartel kingpin's teenage daughter.
With a recent number of suicide bomber incidents occurring within the U.S., the government believes those terrorists are being smuggled across the Mexican border by drug cartels, possibly among the illegal immigrants transported by the likes of Gallo (MANUEL GARCIA-RULFO) who's recruited teenager Miguel Hernandez (ELIJAH RODRIGUEZ) to help with such matters.

Accordingly, Secretary of Defense James Riley (MATTHEW MODINE) wants something done about it and asks covert government agent Matt Graver (JOSH BROLIN) for his suggestion. He proposes that they kidnap the 16-year-old daughter, Isabela Reyes (ISABELA MONER), of one such kingpin and make it appear that a rival cartel is responsible.

Given the green light and with Cynthia Foards (CATHERINE KEENER) overseeing the general operation, Matt enlists his hitman associate, Alejandro Gillick (BENICIO DEL TORO), and other operatives to pull off the kidnapping.

They succeed, but when Mexican police end up dead during part of the mission, Cynthia pulls the plug and orders Matt to clean the situation -- meaning kill everyone involved, including Isabella. When Alejandro refuses to comply, things become increasingly tenuous and dangerous for all involved.

If they're fans of the original "Sicario" movie they probably will.
For strong violence, bloody images, and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
