    Just finished watching this and it was excellent. Pretty much the best movie I've seen in the last few years.

    It stars Benecio Del Toro, so it was already going to be great, but it surpassed my expectations by a long way.

    I watched it. Was not bad at all, ending a bit far fetched but was a solid watch.

    I watched southpaw the other day, was filmed well. Plot was nothing new but Jake played the main protagonist well.

    Also watched the new Tarantino film "the hateful 8". A must for Tarantino lovers, but don't if your not a fan of his work. It wa like a stage show, one main set for the majority of the film. Typical Tarantino dialoge, in depth conversions which I love..

    How would it compare with Scarface.......I'm Tony Montana, a political refugee from Cuba

    datto... mate... Scarface is one of the Top 10 greatest movies of all time. Sicario was great, but not Scarface great.

    Great movie, I enjoyed it, was directed by the guy that also did prisoners, which is also very good though fairly heavy

    I enjoyed both Prisoners and Sicario. This director has the ability to make movies that include scenes with deafening silence that just causes you to go into a very deep thought process.

    I loved this movie but I did say a big WTF when she measured that guy's pulse while wearing a pair of leather gloves. How do they miss stuff like that.

    Well, I don't know what I was on when I watched it then. Everyone I've spoken to that's seen it has raved about how good it was whereas I was absolutely bored to tears. Worst/most boring film I watched in a long time. I turned to Emma at the end and said there's 2 hours I'll never get back, she looked at me like I was stupid, (which is how she looks at me most of the time to be honest), and said I was joking, what an amazing film...

    Have to agree, I convinced Chrissy to watch it at the cinema a while ago now. It was a real let down.

    I think Prisoners was better than Sicario much more thrilling. Sicario sort of just putted along, it was still a good movie but not thrilling like Prisoners is. Didn't know it was the same director

    Definitely agree to that. Prisoners was immensely gripping. I remember clasping my hands together and holding my breath during certain scenes.

    Apparently there will be prequel which will focus on Benecio Del Toro's character
