Lionsgate was originally going to distribute this film in the United States, but a disagreement between them and Black Label Media made the distribution rights change from Lionsgate to Columbia Pictures. The same happened with Only the Brave (2017). Both of these movies star Josh Brolin. See more »
The film depicts the US-Mexico border near McAllen, Texas and Reynosa, Tamaulipas (Mexico) as a barbed wire fence separating both countries. In reality, the border between the US and Mexico is an internationally known body of water: the Rio Grande (Rio Bravo for Mexicans). The Rio Grande River meanders like a snake along the TX-MX border. In some places, the river is several hundred feet wide. In other places, it is only a few yards wide. A border wall (built several yards North of the river) exists along some parts of the Rio Grande Valley, while in other places there is only fencing or no barriers at all between the river and American soil. The Rio Grande Valley/Mexico border is 273 miles long. Currently there are 55 miles of "Primary Fencing" (made up of 18-foot tall steel bollards installed on top of a 4-6 ft. concrete wall).

I loved this film. If you are a fan of Taylor Sheridan and have seen his other films (Hell or High Water, Wind River) then you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. If you liked those films then you will surely like this film - of course, if you weren't fans of those films than don't expect anything different here!
As most of his films go, the pacing is slow as the story plays out - but I never feel bored. The acting, of course, is top notch. Benicio and Brolin are absolutely perfect bringing their characters to life.
Personally, I enjoyed this more than the first Sicario - although only because I found Emily Blunt's character to be annoying.
The bottom line is that this film is definitely worth paying the money to see in the theater.
