    very,very good movie. Argentina is a redoubt of drug traffickers and is going to get worse with the government of the Peronists. As it was until they left in 2015. What a disgrace.

    The scene in which Alejandro ”wakes up” shot in the face pretty much sums everything up. It sums up why the first movie was a masterpiece and why this movie is a masterpiece!Considering the fact that this genre is full of cliches , poor scripts , etc, nobody really expected that scene. If Sicario was your average Crime/Drama film Alejandro would either be saved by Matt or it would turn out that the man who ”died” was not actually Alejandro.This movie embraces Realism and that is the main reason why i love it. It presents gruesome, violent , ugly reality, the truth which is hard to find in other movies.

    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.

    Enough sequels with no plan, make a story much stronger with some new characters to follow, not the same old invincible characters with nothings new to offer! No character development, no new major enemy, jusy a very poor drama with lots of gun playing for the fun of bang bang lovers. Brings a shame to the 1st one.

    This movie is stupid, full of plotholes, cliches, damsels in distress, bad hombres! No resolutions, nonsensical actions that go awry. I shouldn’t have watched it. It was a waste of 2 hours.

    I really enjoyed the first movie. Sicario, day of the soldier takes it to a whole new level. So Shelibear and I went to a preview showing of “Sicario, Day of the Soldado” last night. This is a must see movie to understand the border relations we have with Mexico. It is very intense and graphic, with themes too complicated for younger minds (under 16), but a powerful movie. This movie really runs you through a gamut of emotions and the cinematography is amazing. The story line is amazing. Josh Brolin is really good you will have conflicting emotions and you can really feel his dilemma. Benicio is freaking fantastic. His best movie ever. I am a big fan. I highly recommend this movie.

    If your really need to see it wait for it to come to video, or find a bootleg of it online. But don’t waste your time or money, I saw it as a matinee, and wish I had my money back, I don’t know what movie these people saw that are giving it 9’s and 10’s, they must never have seen a movie before.

    The first film is great, if you haven’t seen it do yourself a favor and check it out. Going in I wasn’t sure that I necessarily needed a sequel as the first film tells a pretty complete story but I suspect there was money to be made and so here we are.The first 2/3rds or so is a fairly good imitation of the original.. it’s not as good but it’s serviceable. There are a few instances where characters do not act consistently with their portrayals in the first film, but it is still entertaining on some level. The last 3rd of the film however, is a complete mess. Not only are there plot holes and/or characters doing nonsensical things only because the plots needs them to do it.. most troublesome is the technical problems.Several scenes are laid out in such a way that it’s difficult to discern when or where they take place within the narrative. Are these scenes happening at the same time or is this the next day? Hard to tell. Are these characters miles apart or only a few feet? We are given conflicting information. Helicopters are “5 minutes out” yet it seemingly takes hours for them to arrive? What?Overall its OK but the ending is really a mess. There’s also a few subplots that seem to add little to the overall plot. If you enjoyed the first one you might find something here but don’t expect the same experience as the original.

    The beginning makes no sense and didn’t add anything to the movie, the story is predictable and has the worst ending movie could ever has. Don’t waste your time and money Don’t be fooled by the ratings here

    Loved Sicario, which showed that you can’t win a war when only one side has a rule book. Soldado follows on from this theme showing how political interference is disruptive to the efforts of those who enable us to sleep peaceably in our beds.

    Where did he find a connection with Islamic terrorist. Those scenes with a suicide bombers are rubbish and no explanation for it in movie related with South American Drog artels and sicarios.

    If you enjoyed the first, you’ll love the second. Great performance by Del Toro, tension throughout the movie is very high, this is not an action movie but more a thriller with some action. Go see this movie

    I liked the first part more than this one. It seems that they ran out of plots for the story to present, so what do you do ? Just add unrelated terrorist scenes to fill this gap for the movie. It would have been much better if you made the movie ~2 hours with a solid plot rather than unrelated scenes of terrorism etc.

    Very poor sequel to the original film, muddled, riven by poor acting and non-credible storylines/characters, and little more than a feature length trailer for Sicario 3. Hopefully this will be the ‘Ocean’s 12’ of the series and there will be a decent 3rd film to match the first one.

    I really like the military-themed movies, especially when presented in such a mesmerizing way as this Sicario movie.This film gives a fairly intense feeling of tension from beginning to end. The initial scene of the movie really makes us thrilled by the horror as a result of the terrorist cruelty against innocent citizens.Josh Brolin has played a very good and stunning character for Matt Graver. We can feel the aura of terror, firmness and professionalism from Matt just by looking at body language and Josh Brolin’s appearance. He really makes himself look very tough and ready to avenge the terrorist cruelty in a way that will satisfy us.Benicio Del Toro has also given the impression of revenge that is so scary that we can feel that the retaliation will be very appropriate with the cruelty of the terrorists themselves.The battle scenes between the military under Josh Brolin’s leadership with the cartel members and with the evil Mexican police have been shown to be very realistic, cruel and frightening. Every splash of blood is seen as a cruelty on one side, but on the other hand satisfying.In movies like Rambo or James Bond, we see that the bullets and deaths of someone, especially the evil one, seem so easy and cheap. But in movies like Sicario, the death of a human really feels like a death that gives a sense of fear.I highly recommend you to watch this movie.

    When three terrorists explodes a supermarket in America, the American government believes the responsible were the Mexican cartels smuggling terrorists to America. They decide to begin a war among the cartels and an unofficial command is assigned to kidnap the daughter of a kingpin and release her in the land of another cartel. However, when the government discovers that the responsible for the terrorist attack were American citizens from New Jersey, they decide to abort the plan and kill the girl. But things go wrong and do not happen as planned.”Sicario: Day of the Soldado” is a messy and flawed film with great action scenes. There are so many plot holes that make no sense unless the viewer is brainless. The stupid beginning is absolutely pointless. The terrorist attack to the supermarket is an excellent scene, but the attitude of the mother heading with her child toward the last terrorist in the opposite direction people are running is senseless. The scene of Isabel Reyes fighting at school is another pointless scene. Why the Mexican police officers in the seven cars that joined the three American cars start shooting the American team? Why Alejandro risks his life to save the annoying girl? How can the teenager recognize a man that he glanced at in a car for a few seconds in the parking area of a supermarket in Texas? Why take Isabel to the witness protection program? How Alejandro crossed the border and was hospitalized? There are so many other questions about this flick that would take lots of time to write. My vote is five.Title (Brazil): “Sicário: Dia do Soldado” (“Sicario: Day of the Soldado”)

    I still remembering going to the cinema all by myself to see Sicario back in 2015. I didn’t bring any one with me because it was a last minute call, I was just studding about the Mexican cartel at that time when the movie was released and decided to watch Sicaio to get a better sense of the situation. The new ‘Sicaio day of the Soldado’ brings back the two famous actors Brolan and Del Toro (Minus Emily Blunt…uh well). This time they have to fight against the people who smuggle terrorists through the Mexican border. As an Israeli citizen, I have experienced terrorism in my own home town and can relate to it very easily. I have to say that Soldado have successfuly brought that atmosphere of terror in a very realistic way. I enjoyed it very much, it’s darker than it’s presedor but the tense and plot twists are strong, not to mention the performences of the great casts. A+

    If you love moderately paced realistic action, I mean not the kind of action where bullets fly of the main hero and all kinds of unbelievable nonsense is happening, but the kind of action, where you have the time to enjoy every scene and the plot is actually pretty believable – this is the one.I enjoyed every bit of it: from the atmosphere that doesn’t really rush you, but doesn’t bore you either. Nothing is too slow, and what is much more important, nothing is too fast – which is so common in action scenes. My respect to the video editor – he’s done a marvelous job. The composer is also brilliant – the music is so dark, atmospheric and beautiful.And all the main characters in this play are lovable. I mean, the main studs are just so cool. They are like the definition of toughness. If you take guys like Rambo, Batman or Luke Skywalker – they are not even close to that definition cause of the unrealistic atmosphere. You know you’re been tricked watching those too good to be true kind of guys. In this movie – it’s pure joy to watch that manliness brought on screen.So, go watch it. I first thought: too many good reviews, those people aren’t real, but I’ll give it a try anyway. Now I realize it’s actually a great piece of dark cinema. And that’s the kind of cinema I usually enjoy the most. So, my thumbs are pointing up. Loved it and will definitely watch the next part, when it’s out.

    Reading the reviews, it seems you either love this or hate it. I unfortunately fall in the latter category. I am usually REALLY soft and forgiving on plot holes and other minor quirks in a movie as long as I am entertained. This film did NOT keep me entertained, and was in no way a worthy successor to the original Sicario. This movie had multiple-personality disorder. It would start going with a plot-line, then completely drop it and switch gears to something else. Ultimately it just felt like a confusing jumble. It is sub-titled “Day of the Soldier” and that’s an apt name, all of the far too few action sequences had highly trained & heavily armed US Special Forces guys completely overwhelming their opponents. No real tension at all. Maybe something to love here for “rah-rah America, see how they can pummel those backward foreigners!!” but I found it to be lacking in any punch. The trailers had this seem like a “war on the drug cartels” film. There is virtually none of that as the film mostly bogs down in a really contrived kidnapping scheme that was supposed to set off a war between the cartels, but the film showed NONE of that. Brolin & his team just go across the border into Mexico at will in helicopters and armored vehicles and end up slaughtering lots of people, most of whom are not even obvious cartel members (yes, they WORK for the cartels, but I’d have liked to see engagement with some actual Cartel forces, not Federales and lawyers who work for them). This film highlights American aggression and is strong on a total disregard for Mexico’s sovereignty with a bit of “Muslim fear/hysteria” thrown in and then quickly abandoned. That said….acting by Brolin & Del Toro was top-notch, but not enough to save this mish-mash with no cohesive through-plot and plot fragments that had holes wide enough to fly one of the military helicopters through.

    I was tricked to go see this film by the trailer, which is above average. The story depicted there has nothing to do with the actual film, which is entirely about something else. Good play by the leading roles, weak plot, the initial subject is over-taken by a side-story. And then the movie ends. You will be frustrated upon leaving the theater. You wish that you could re-make the movie in another manner, better… Just say no to this, waste of time and money for a B-category movie , which you can enjoy just fine on a sofa in front of a TV, on a Monday night, with nothing else on…

    The original was a masterpiece, in my opinion. It was brutal, dark, super-realistic with a great story and great acting. And some highly intense actionscenes. It had me and my buddy at the edges of our seats from the beginning to the end of the movie.This time however the plot is too thin.It starts off with some terrorist attacks on the american side of the border. Why the mexican drugcartels would commit terror on US-soil is never explained. But somehow the american government knows this wasnt ISIS. Because Matt Graver is once again hired by the government to bring down the mexican drugcartels. He is allowed to get dirty and start an all out war. He brings in Alejandro again. And he starts the war by kidnapping some drug lords daughter and make it seem like it was done by another cartel. Something goes wrong and alot of corrupt(?) mexican policemen are killed. The girl escapes. Alejandro goes after her. The dead policemen makes the government pull the plug on the whole war, before it ever starts . Matt tells Alejandro to kill the girl, but he refuses. After this the film goes from bad to worse.The so called war on the cartels, never really happens. In the orginal it felt like a war. Here I felt cheated. Not just because of the lack of action, but because, the story never evolved into anything but mediocrity. In the first one, the mission was to bring down a certain druglord. And for Alejandro it was personal. This time Alejandro is there for no reason at all. And the goal is to bring all the cartels down. This is obviously ridiculous and impossible. And that makes the movie fail. It never really gets going. Despite the same talented leads (except from Emily Blundt) and the same studio and all that, it just doesnt deliver. The trailer promised an all out actionmovie, so I really wasnt expectiung much, based on the silly trailer. But the movie couldnt even deliver on that promise. I give it two stars, because in itself its not that bad a movie. But as a sequel its downright bad.

    My first review: Loved the first Sicario. Raw and different. This time I almost walked out of the cinema. Really bad. Could not believe its the same screenwriter. The story is really thin (and short). The overacting by Isabela Moner was too much on many moments. May not be her fault, but the director. Benico and Josh did an excellent job, but the movie is just bad. Most annoying is the rating her. The first 21 (!!) gave it a 10/10. The Godfather Part II came to seven (7). So something is really wrong. Really annoying because I really trust IMDB.

    Sequels typically strive to go bigger and badder than the original. This sequel is no exception. This issue with attempting to up the ante is that it often causes sequels to lose sight of what made the original special. Again, this sequel is no exception.For some reason that I still don’t understand, ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ opens with coverage of Somali pirates, Mexican-United States border crossings, and graphic scenes of ISIS suicide bombers that will leave you unsettled for an uncomfortably long time. Government agents presume that all these terrorist efforts are connected. They’re not. The film’s inclusion of these scenes doesn’t add layers to the complexity of anti-terrorist or anti-drug efforts (it’s unclear if that was ever the intention). Instead, the scenes only serve to offer some of the BANG BANG moments that sequels seeming to require. There’s an emptiness, a pointlessness to the violence-that should be the point of the film. “The war on drugs” is a war without an opponent, and the U.S. is fighting an unwinnable fight. The violence only begets greater violence, one immoral acts leads to dozen more like it, and everyone becomes dirty in the end. This film has no heroes. I wish that’s what this movie was about, but it misses the point. It lacks the perspective and awareness of the first ‘Sicario’ film. The action in this film is well shot and exciting, same as the first film, but all subtle yet crucial details that made the first film excellent are wrong in this one. The acting saves the movie from failure. Josh Brolin is excellent once again as the smirking tough guy government agent, and Benicio Del Toro is award-worthy as Alejandro, the sicario. Though he has taken frustrating character development leaps since the first film, Del Toro is nonetheless commanding, angry and tactful. Mercifully, he also provides a few drops of humanity into a movie in desperate need of some. Most actors lack the versatility to successfully transition between all these emotions. But this is Benicio Del Toro. If you’re a huge fan of Del Toro, Brolin or this genre of film, consider seeing it in the theater. Otherwise, wait until you can watch it at home.

    SPOILERS: I cannot believe the great reviews this movie is receiving? I must have been watching something else?Ruined imo what was a fantastic first movie with a terrible follow up (and as many mentioned a follow up not necessarily needed). The trailers for second movie we’re misleading- there is no war with the cartels. There is no war between Benico or Josh. The story is a convoluted mess, gives a new female lead way too much screen time and importance but you still don’t care about her compared to Blunt’s character from the 1st movie. Worse – this movie destroys Benico’s brutal raw Sicario from the first (able to murder children) and turns him into the killer with a heart. Ridiculous.The ending was worse with a ham fisted finish that sets the series up for a 3rd installment. Honestly very disappointing- what I loved about the first was a rawness/realness where as this second is just fantasy.It’s so bad that this had compelled me to write my first ever review!

    Where the original Sicario was carried by the suspence created by the contrasting naive FBI-agent Macy (Emily Blunt), the cynical CIA-agent Matt (Josh Brolin) and the vengeful Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) as ruthless sicario turned against the drug carlets operating along the US-Mexico border, the sequal lacks this tension and becomes an analogue and rather predictable story. Decent acting performances, and attempts to recreate the original dark athmosphere cannot save the weak plot, where several interesting issues launched at the start are not followed through. This makes for a rather unfulfilling experience, despite hints of another sequal.

    This is one of those action movies that it only job is to give you as real as possible experience with its beautiful cinematography. It doesn’t feel as real as ”Children of Men” and it probably won’t get a Oscar but it serves its job. The movie may not be as masterful as Villeneuve’s original, but it achieves to keep you on the screen. There are really good heart-pumping scenes that beautifully blended with the score in its convoluted plot. Just like in the first movie, the story gets darker and darker. It reflects real-life situations, that’s why it’s so dreary and compelling. All the events is a buildup to our main story. It all ties together perfectly in the end. And even though key cast member Emily Blunt no longer here, the movie stands alone as a powerful modern-day Western, thanks to the Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, and Taylor Sheridan who also penned the screenplay of the first movie.I’ll definitely watch this again.
