>>28664391 Why make it a gender thing? She was someone used to operating within strict rules and regulations, so when she got saddled with a bunch of guys who make their own rules and effectively ignore the law that she has spend her whole career holding as a virtue, she couldn't handle it. Add to it that she was fed a bunch of bullshit about making a difference when she was actually just there so they could operate on US soil. It wouldn't have been any different if she were a male FBI agent AFAIC.
>>28664388 Problematic. Alejandro used a pistol caliber carbine. Great movie though, rented it on demand last night and the cinematography and score do an amazing job of depicting the American southwest. This coming from someone whose family's ranch is on the Texas border and has a fetish for the American southwest. I hope this group remakes the Cormac McCarthy border trilogy.
>>28664427 >pistol caliber carbine You realize multiple times he was referred to as Medellín, so he probably wasn't trained in the same equipment as the US-based operators. He used what he was trained to use.
>>28664427 > the cinematography and score do an amazing job of depicting the American southwest.
I agree. The score alone felt very dreadful and melancholy.
>>28664471 Funny thing is, if you watch any of the extras, the director wanted to film it on location in Juarez, but they were told they couldn't because it was too fucking dangerous. So they filmed it in Mexico City for all the scenes in Juarez.
Remembers producer Basil Iwanyk, "When we decided to go to Juarez, we couldn't find one American law enforcement agency to give us the official go-ahead to go across the border. We went with a Mexican 'fixer' who had successfully brought a CNN crew into Juarez a few years ago, and he contacted a bunch of undercover federales who drove us around. They carried submachine guns in the front of the car and told us very specific things like, I should bring glasses with me, since I wore contact lenses, just in case we got stopped and kidnapped. We drove a white SUV because only the cartel guys drive black SUVs and if you drive a black SUV you can get targeted."
During six intense hours, the scouting group was only allowed out of the vehicle twice.
Iwanyk recalls, "We were shadowed by a white Mustang because we were there too long, but the trip made the movie for us. We understood what Juarez was. It really coagulated Denis's vision. The thing that strikes you about Juarez is that life goes on - there are kids playing ball there, there are people going on with their daily business - but at the same time there's this overhanging veil of darkness and crime."
>>28666130 I wouldn't have believed it either but my uncle bought one for CZ P-07. With regular ammunition the noise is the crack of the bullet breaking the sound barrier. Using subsonic all you can hear is the action of the pistol.
>>28666165 Pretty sure he just was about to "get some."
Okay, but real question: Why was a dude that slim with the beefcakes known as Delta? Also, why was he never shown again (to my knowledge) after the interrogation? Visually, he seemed the most out of place, so he made for an interesting character. Sequel (true or spiritual) when?
>>28667116 >>28667290 "Jeffrey Donovan has joined the cast of Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, which is filming in New Mexico. In the Lionsgate actioner starring Benecio Del Toro and Emily Blunt, he will play Steve Forsing, a no-nonsense DEA Agent who engages in an all-out firefight at the Juarez border while transferring a prisoner"
>>28667116 "The proper way to blend in as an elite operator is to make sure you get the look right. In this case I chose to imitate the style of some old delta operator that a bunch of fatties on a Mongolian throat singing board seem to idolize."
My dad didn't like how they portrayed Juarez as violent and he thought the movie made Mexicans look incompetent. Him being Mexican himself he visits his (safe) hometown of Mazatlan every couple of years so maybe he doesn't know how bad the rest of the country has really gotten.
>hear complaining about blunt's character >figure it's being exacerbated by the fact that 4chan doesn't like girls or idealists, let alone a girl idealist >watch movie >basic ass swat skills, could have easily died to that guy in the beginning >can't stomach the sight of corpses >clearly gets attached as a formality >drops her rifle >doesn't get out of the car >still has the sheer arrogance to try and assert herself amongst seasoned delta and cia
Kate genuinely annoyed me. I know that the guys were all seasoned military, but it must have taken all their discipline to not frag her.
How common is that kind of arrogance among federal agents IRL? I've talked to a few cops and they hate it when the feds get involved.
>>28669297 She doesn't drop it, she gets it shot out of her hands, which honestly doesn't excuse >>28669468 but it was a fluke. She might not have gotten out becasue she wasn't exactly sure what the hell that was, there's a bunch of spooks and you are the only Fed, who do you think is going to be the person taking the fall back home in her mind? Though that is just me making up some shit that wasn't explained in the movie and could be interpreted multiple ways.
Corpse thing you don't know how you'll react until you're there unless you already took a trip to a body farm.
>>28669691 That was one body, this was a house that was in the Southwest heat and the walls were literally made of corpses, humans are trained through their nose. Decay, especially human, is deeply revolting in a way is hard to control without experience.
Fair enough. But my complaints of the character overall still stand: we've got an idealistic federal agent whose experience pales to the men she's supposed to be supervising. Since she takes things as honestly as possible, she firmly believes she has a place there beyond signing the paper at the end, which is not the case.
>>28665704 Sorry for the misnomer I was drunk. >>28664622 It's a great series of books about two young men who grew up ranching in the southwest and their journeys into Mexico. Includes gunfights and horses. Think Red Dead Redemption but in the 1940's.
>>28664427 >the cinematography and score do an amazing job of depicting the American southwest. This is one thing I really didn't expect from the movie at all. All those aerial shots of Arizona made me weirdly nostalgic for my childhood there.
>>28666484 >>28667968 Most operators (Army Side)I've come into contact with were pretty lean dudes. Met a Captain once who was 5' nothing, and stocky as hell, but that's about it. Now most SEALs condone powerlifting because the muscle mass insulates their bodies for SCBA and SDV.
Read Eric Haney's book, Inside Delta Force, and look at his photographs at 27- skinny as hell, with giant BCGs. He personifies "dweeb," but I still wouldn't fuck with him.
Body composition varies widely between branches, and has to do with that certain units mission capability/requirement. CAG dudes ruck 40 days straight with a single stripped MRE per day during selections alone. Up to 40 miles a day.
>in addition to the confirmed combat veterans amongst /k/, 4chan has an entire board dedicated to fitness >many spec ops units have introduced some form of streamlined way of getting into them >they always get work, even during "peace time" >from there you can retire and invest on uncle sam's dime or pipeline into spoopy mode
>>28669749 Yeah that was the main part of the movie I didn't buy. You would have smelled that shit even walking up to the house, but they all act like they didn't notice until there was a hole in the wall. The smell of a decaying corpse is something you never forget.
