Emily Blunt stars in this bloody thriller about an FBI agent who, after raiding a Mexican cartel’s safe house in Arizona, gets chosen for a top-secret mission to take down a high-profile drug lord across the border. As she realizes the full scope of the operation, she begins to suspect she’s being used as bait. It’s two hours of graphic violence and nail-biting secret missions—think Zero Dark Thirty Goes to Mexico—and we get to see Emily Blunt in an ass-kicking role. We won’t be surprised if her name pops up when awards season rolls around.
