Rai Movie, 9.10 pm. With Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin. Directed by Denis Villeneuve. USA production 2015. Duration: 2 hours
A young, pretty and idealistic FBI agent finds herself involved in a secret CIA operation aimed at ending the drug trade between Mexico and the United States. The fight is furious and full of unexpected events. The line between good and evil is often crossed and re-crossed by agents of the task force. The girl comes out half destroyed. Quite the opposite of a former “repentant” trafficker enlisted in the group. The fight against narcos for him is a pretext to carry out his revenge (he is the hitman of the title)
WHY SEE IT
Because it’s one of the best action movies of the past decade. Villeneuve lays the foundations for what would have been a few years after his great professional achievement: the impossible mission of filming the impossible. That is, the translation of the unspeakable “Dune”. The high point: the incident at border controls; where the adrenaline goes to a thousand.
