Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Sicario is a dramatic thriller about an FBI special task force dedicated to taking out drug lords in Mexico (the title means "hit man" in Spanish). It has a lot of strong, sometimes gruesome violence, with scenes of decomposing corpses, shootings, killings, fighting, bloody wounds, and explosions. A couple kisses and nearly has sex, but they're interrupted; the main female character is also shown in her bra. There's also some sex talk, as well as other strong language ("f--k," "a--hole," etc.). Drugs aren't readily shown, but characters sometimes drink or smoke a bit too much, and drug dealing is at the heart of the story. Though the material is intense and fairly grim, it's a masterful, often exhilarating movie with a complex, strong female lead character (played by Emily Blunt).

Sexual Content
