2015 crime drama

Rating: 15/20

Plot: Apparently, there's some issues with drugs and violence right around the border between America and Mexico. Instead of just building a wall to keep the drugs out, a CIA task force recruits an FBI agent and her partner to go try to win Nancy Reagan's war on drugs.

A lot of tense moments and some really good performances--especially by Blunt, Brolin, and a chilling Del Toro--add up to something nearly great even when it feels derivative. Its themes are a little too obvious, but there are some terrific moments throughout the movie. The characters' relationships and their motivations often leave you guessing.

I'm tired. I shouldn't have even started this blog entry.
