Sicario starring Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin

The premiere is September 18th 2015 in the USA. Sicario means assassin or hit-man; either term means a killer without remorse. In the unsafe country of Mexico seeing someone killed, kidnapped or missing has become so common than the good people live in fear.

The uncontrollable and ungovernable border extending between Mexico and the United States has become the focus of an elite government task force. The force is recruiting the cream of the crop FBI agents to work for them; and this is how Kate Marcer (Emily Blunt) began her job with them.

Her main duty she is to assist in the escalating war against drugs coming into the United States across the border. This task alone is beyond most men, even the ones who walked before her and other agents; whose faded footprints died in the parched land of both countries.

Kate works with the Task Force commanded by a mysterious professional Non-American named Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) who leads them in searching for nameless drug lord. She quickly finds out the playing field might have CIA agents in the mix and the risk factor rises in lieu of their presence; rather than making it more secure.

Her so call duties are multiplying; in essence she now has to watch her back because she does not know who to trust. She’s warned by Matt (Josh Brolin) that she saw things sheshould not have seen; which puts her life at risk. Kate has found out she is not just a member of the task force, but an enemy to so many; even her own people. Who can she trust? Will Kate make it? Who has her back?  Who wants to kill her? Is it Sicario?

This movie will keep us on the edge of our last nerve with its action, drama, crime as it boasts to all it is truly a thriller.

Mark your calendars in the USA for September 18th premiere. Thanks for reading my movie review.

Kill the Messenger with Jeremy Renner, Michael Sheen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead---Premiere October 10th 2014

A movie based on a true story of the life of an American; Gary Webb, a Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist whose investigation of the men and the government responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic that spread through our nation. 

This is his account of what happened as much as a movie can depict a man’s search for the truth when he is no longer alive; to verify how closely the movie is to the truth. 

Kill the Messenger adapted from his book: Dark Alliance.

Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) an investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News searched for the truth and found it. 

It begins with the CIA backing the Nicaraguan Contras; allowing their smuggled cocaine into the United States then given to certain gangs that processed and sold it as crack cocaine to the south central area streets of Los Angeles in the 1980s. 

Then, the Contras received the profits for their fight against reconstruction of their government in Nicaragua.

Allegations increased that the US Government along with other agencies are responsible for the epidemic of crack cocaine that explored through the black communities of our nation.

Gary told his friend Fred Weil (Michael Sheen) his story was a true story that needed telling. And, Michael replied: Some stories are just too true to tell. Michael also told him it was dangerous.

When asked by Ronnie Quail (Robert Patrick): You believe in conspiracy theories Gary? 

Gary said I believe in conspiracy yes, there’s no theory about it. Many were too afraid to believe his story because then people did not view their opinions openly as they do today.

I will be happy when this movie premieres on October 10th, 2014 I will be in line to see it. Always remember to research both sides of any story---because truth can sometimes read like fiction.

From Paris with Love---John Travolta & Jonathan Rhys Meyers (2010)

James Reese (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is an ambitious young aide to the United States Ambassador Bennington (Richard Durden) in France. James floats in a calm sea of dullness serving him. However, James would rather be on an assignment with the job of his passion; as a low rank secret agent for the CIA.

James is hoping to get an assignment in the CIA of a higher-level so he can prove his worth to the agency. And, just when he is enjoying being with his girlfriend---he gets a call from the CIA telling him to pick up his partner Charlie Wax (John Travolta) because he is being detained by French Customers at the airport. Because Charlie does not want to turn over his cans of his favored energy drink to them.

This was James’ first test of the assignment and after Charlie Wax called the French Airport Security Agents everything in the book and then some, he stood defiant against them, Yes,  James was shocked by Charlie's loud mouth with foul words being spit out at anyone or anything that got in this big bad CIA agents’ way. James slapped a Diplomatic Mail sticker on the bag of energy drinks. This solved the issue since the drinks were now protected from Customs.

James’ CIA handler advised him to do what Charlie Wax told him because he was on a very important assignment. Which James found out later it involved terrorist that were responsible for the death of the niece of Secretary of Defense.

Charlie Wax takes James on an action adventure of his assignment and one might describe it as a high-level CIA tutorial where killing and bombing is a big part of the lesson. This will be the beginning of James’ hard lesson on the facts of life as a CIA Operative. Will James make it to the end? Will Charlie Wax and James become friends and contacts to help each other with any future assignments they will be given?

Only after seeing the entire movie will one be able to answer all the questions one might want answers to; so buckle up this will be a ride to remember.

The A-Team--Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper & Sharlto Copley


Somewhere in Mexico Col. Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) is handcuffed to a chair by Mexican corrupted police officers who are taking turns hitting him.

They soon get tired of beating him, they take his money and leave, but they send in the Bulldogs to have a free meal of Hannibal. Hannibal unlocks the cuffs with the pin from his gun just in time to save himself from the dogs.

Then somewhere else in Mexico B.A. Baracus (Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson) is back to collect his girl---that is what he calls his black van that he loves---from a garage owner who is keeping it.

Suddenly, a fight breaks out and B.A. Baracus, who has huge arms with muscles rippling down to his fingertips, makes a short and fast exit with his van after knocking everyone out who fought with him.

He has tattoos on each hand. The left hand has the word ‘Play’ tattooed on it and the right one has the word ‘Fool’; he starts his fights with the play fist and ends up with the fool fist.

Still in Mexico is Lt. ‘Faceman ‘Face’ Peck ( Bradley Cooper) who is now being invaded by more crooked and mean Mexicans who are holding his girlfriend and has him trapped in five tries. They are beating him all the while Face is laughing and asking them---is that your best shot?

Face is trapped in the tires.

In the meantime Hannibal is trying to get to him by running across the desert to save Face, when he sees a van moving fast in the direction of his friend. Hannibal stops the van and hijacks it by shooting B.A. Baracus in the right arm. Hannibal tells him---I am not a thief but if I do not reach my friend in time he dies. Hannibal and B.A. discovered they were both special selected soldiers---Rangers---and proudly wear the same tattoo.

They arrive in time to save Face from being burned alive and the four of them the three men and Face’s girlfriend ride off in B.A.’s girl---the black van. They meet up with the fourth special selected soldier in the hospital who will sew-up the bullet wound on B.A.’s arm. His name is Captain H.M. Murdock (Sharlto Copley) he will be the fourth member of the A-Team.

Then the mission begins with the four American soldiers---The A-Team---who are in Iraq waiting to be sent on a mission by Hannibal’s good friend General Morrison. They are sent to retrieve plates for printing 100 dollar bills, and, the thieves had already printed a billion dollars. And, this is where the action commences, with adventure fireworks, dealings, double dealings, double crossing, court martialed, prison and prison breaks.

Fasten your seatbelt all you action fans because this is a great action movie---I loved it from the beginning to the end. I would love to see this A-Team do an A-Team II.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba & Zoe Saldana in---The Losers (2010)

It is never a smart move to double-cross an elite United States Special Forces Unit. These guys were sent to the Bolivian Jungle on a mission to find and eliminate the enemy.

After the target was marked the unit became aware there were a large group of children they had to save and since their contact in the USA would not call off the attack. The unit of five guys, Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who was the leader, Jensen ( Chris Evans), Roque (Idris Elba), Pooch (Columbus Short) and Cougar (Oscar Jaenada).

When the team realized the children would be killed if they did not go in and save them---and they had only eight (8) minutes to do before the missile hit its target.

The five men rush down to the jungle compound killing many of enemy before reaching the children. Finally they manage to rescue the children using an old school bus to save them.

 After walking through the jungle with the group of children---they meet their contact helicopter and while helping the children on board they were informed---only enough room for the children. Clay said we will stay---so the helicopter rose in the air while the children waved bye to their heroes.

As the five men watched the helicopter rise over the trees to leave they heard a funny noise in the sky and looked up just in time to see a missile blow the helicopter up with all the children aboard.

The men ran to the wreckage knowing in their hearts what they would find---only burnt metal and fire still burning. Clays saw the little Teddy Bear one of the children was holding---burning on the ground.

As their eyes could not leave the burning twisted metal---Clay said that was supposed to be us---and they all knew at that moment they were dead to the USA that sent them to complete the mission and to their families.

Clay threw his dog tags into the burning wreck and each man followed suit. They were no longer Special Forces---now they were just men living in jungle looking for a way to revenge their own betrayal. And they knew the name of the name who did it---Max. But they did not know what he looked like.

Clay was approached by a beautiful woman with her own agenda named Aisha (Zoe Saldana) she told them she would get them home if they helped her to eliminate the heavily guarded Max. So the action begins after they reach Miami and plans are made.

This is a very good action movie with a good plot carried out with extra good actors as you will find out for yourselves.
