Secretary of State calls Brolin in for a new assignment. He is asked to start a war among the drug cartels in hopes of getting them to fight each other and stop trafficking people into the U.S. Brolin recruits Del Torres into his unit. They begin by killing a cartel lawyer and then kidnap a cartel teenage girl in hopes of one cartel blaming the other. The plan soon backfires and everything goes to hell. Without spoiling the story, the ending leaves an opening for another movie.
Loved it from start to finish. Del Torres and Brolin are even more handsome than I last remember. The military's technology mixed with the action scenes kept me glued to my seat. I thought of Homeland and Narcos rolled up in one great movie. Besides the incredible action sequences, the story was simple, but newsworthy regarding the happenings at the U.S.-Mexico border. The movie doesn't preach one political side or another. Instead, it fairly shows both the desperation as well as greedy profiteering that keeps people from other parts of the world illegally entering America. Both governments have always closed their eyes to the situation, and, as mentioned in the movie, will continue looking the other way. Look forward to the next one! 5/5 Stars
