Sicario movie quotes tell the story of one FBI agent tasked with helping take down a Mexican drug cartel, or at least that's the story she's sold. The crime thriller was written by Taylor Sheridan and directed by Denis Villeneuve. Sicario opened in theaters in the United States on September 18, 2015.

In Sicario, FBI agent Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) is approached by Matt (Josh Brolin), who asks her to join what he describes as a special task force for the State Department to help take down a brutal drug cartel boss. While this isn't normally her niche, she agrees, knowing well how dangerous and deadly the cartel can be.

So Kate heads to Mexico to meet with Alejandro (Benicio del Toro), something that soon ends in a shootout. Kate learns that her role in this scheme might not be as advertised, especially when she learns that Alejandro is actually a hit man, the Spanish word of which is sicario. But when she confronts Matt with her information, she is left in a tough spot over whether to report it or not.

Sicario opens alongside other great films such as Everest, Black Mass, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and The Visit.
