An idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.
Having just completed Everest (2015), an exhausted Josh Brolin turned down this film. Cinematographer Roger Deakins sent him an email imploring him to join the project. Since it was so uncharacteristic of Deakins to take this stand, Brolin changed his mind.
Fausto Alarcon "El Verdugo". Every day across that border, people are kidnapped or killed by his hand or with his blessing. To find him would be like discovering a vaccine. You understand the value of that?
At the bridge scene, when Steve Forsing uses his Eotech sight to target one of the vehicles, you can see that his weapon is not charged. You can see into the ejection port on the right side of his M4, indicating that the bolt is in the rear position and therefore there is no round in the chamber.
