Part of the film is set in McAllen, Texas, a city near the US-Mexico border. The film shows several scenes where the background shows either mountains or hills near the border. The actual McAllen, Texas is located in the southern tip of Texas, where there are NO mountains or hills, since it's a flat country near the Gulf of Mexico. See more »
Where the original Sicario was carried by the suspence created by the contrasting naive FBI-agent Macy (Emily Blunt), the cynical CIA-agent Matt (Josh Brolin) and the vengeful
Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) as ruthless sicario turned against the drug carlets operating along the US-Mexico border, the sequal lacks this tension and becomes an analogue and rather predictable story. Decent acting performances, and attempts to recreate the original dark athmosphere cannot save the weak plot, where several interesting issues launched at the start are not followed through. This makes for a rather unfulfilling experience, despite hints of another sequal.
