New Delhi [India], Dec 22 (ANI): Famous film critic, Anupama Chopra recently commented on the gritty nail-biting drama film 'Sicario', which presents an idealistic FBI agent's battle with her own emotions as she is introduced to a whole new world of violence and carnage along the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, as part of a clandestine black ops operation. Sharing her views on this action-packed film that was nominated for three Academy Awards in Cinematography, Sound Editing and Best Original Music Score and is soon premiering on television, Anupama Chopra said, "Sicario is great option - relentlessly tense, brutal and compelling". Starring Academy Award Winner Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, this American crime-thriller drama film is a stark tale on the escalating war against drugs as the protagonist, Emily Blunt, tries to wrestle her own demons at the cost of the greater good. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, an idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer finds herself caught between the boundaries of what can be regarded as moral and immoral. Star Movies Select HD is all set to bring to its audience one of the most honest portrayals of the situation south of the US border featuring an immersive, antagonizing, anxiety building tale with terrific performances, stunning cinematography and ominous score that promises nonstop intensity, on this Christmas eve, December 24 at 9 PM.
