Sicario (2015) – Review

Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), a young and somewhat inexperienced FBI Agent is recruited onto a covert government task force, which has been formed to assist in the escalating war against drugs on the border between the United States and Mexico. Given very little information about the methods and eventual targets of the task force, she soon comes to the realisation that their means of doing things are extremely unorthodox. A widely favoured film that was originally released in 2015 and landed a sequel not long after that.

Lord of War (2005) – Review

After moving from Odessa (Ukraine) to New York (United States), Yuri Orlov (Nicholas Cage) decides to become an illegal international arms dealer, alongside his younger brother Vitaly (Jared Leto). Supplying an ungodly amount of weaponry to disturbed and deprived areas of the world, Yuri quickly becomes a multi-millionaire before marrying and seemingly creating the perfect life, all while being hunted down by a large group of federal agents, spearheaded by Jack Valentine (Ethan Hawke). Based on real events, Lord of War manages to give the viewer a brilliantly realistic view of what goes on behind closed doors when it comes to arms dealing.
