News & Interviews for Sicario: Day of the Soldado
Critic Reviews for Sicario: Day of the Soldado
It's engrossing in a very direct action way... [But] there are enough hot button issues floating around in this movie that I was hoping for something more than just a glorified "blow things up real big" action [movie].
Benicio Del Toro is incredible, the story is gripping, it is different then the first film.
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
'Day of the Soldado' would be hard to stomach at any time. It feels particularly worthless now.
Without a humanizing element like Blunt's character, this whole grim affair is just a race to the bottom in which everyone loses.
Audience Reviews for Sicario: Day of the Soldado
An intense and gritty crime drama, Sicario: Day of the Soldado tackles some very topical and complicated issues. When the Mexican cartels are suspected of smuggling several terrorists over the US-Mexico borer a paramilitary group is assembled to start a cartel war by kidnapping one of the leader's daughters, but when the op goes bad everything changes. Starring Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Catherine Keener, and Jeffery Donavan, the film has solid cast. And, the fight choreography is quite impressive and action-packed. Additionally, the script does a good job at showing the complexities and moral grayness involved in the border war: cartels, terrorism, human trafficking. Sicario: Day of the Soldado is little different than the original, but it's still incredibly compelling and provocative.
Not as memorable or as unique as the first installment in the trilogy, but as a stand-alone summer shooter it does more than enough to satisfy your appetite for action sequences.
The sequel to the grim thriller offers more of the same: a realistic and violent look at terrorism, trafficking and the need to get dirty to win such wars. Emily Blunt as the moral compass of the first film did not return. The sequel looks almost as great and the mood is quite similar anyhow. In the end, the plot falls a bit short, but still makes for some grim entertainment. wonderfully tense situations and a couple of surprises.
