Federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) to escalate the drug war in unscrupulous ways.
No rules this time. Agent Matt Graver teams up with operative Alejandro Gillick to prevent Mexican drug cartels from smuggling terrorists across the United States border.. Sicario: Day of the Soldado Wiki
Not as great as the original but entertaining
First one was great, but sequels are rarely as good as this one is no exception. Decent follow up but feels like it's just setting up for a trilogy... Or more.
A great sequel - don't listen to the naysayers on here. Definitely worth watching.
The interesting thing about this is Hollywood NEVER learns. The first movie, tense and very good; good plot, etc. Good acting. This movie, a major let-down. No interesting or strong female characters, A poor attempt to have a child as a major motivator (boring, boring); Sicario going sentimental on two fronts — all in all, very bad. Very bad, indeed. I watched it (twice) and it came across as shallow and somewhat stupid. Certainly bad plot lines and scrabmled writing.
Do not know why they bother to make a sequel.No wonder Emily Blunt gave it a miss.I wish I had......🤮
It was a ride off the beaten path, but that is not always bad ,just when you think it ends it begins. For awhile it was a good typical shoot em up flick until the end. I thought wth all my movie experience Benicios end was expected until he got up like so many underdogs in life they just won’t die. I think Benicio DelToro is the new anti hero, Dark and forgiving and yet full of vengeance, I only have this much to say, a stand alone Hit Girl movie with Benicio Del Toro as the villain, please I have given you half my money, I deserve that!
The original was a great movie, this “part 2” is a total mess. Other than a couple of familiar faces and similar music, it has nothing to do with the first. I imagine a Hollywood board room packed with executives tossing out ideas and some half wit writing them all down to put in the script. Middle eastern terrorists..check. Cute kid for sympathy....check. Cartels..check. Lots of explosions and shooting..check. Battle hardened good guys with a soft spot for cute kids...check. There are gaping holes in the plot that make you ponder the sanity of the writers, or heaven forbid the editor that created this mess. I won’t post spoilers but some parts you can’t help laughing at, including a helicopter flight that’s “15 minutes” to the target that takes from the middle of the night until mid morning to traverse. The plot, even without the errors, is implausible at best, and don’t get me started on the ending. Overall the entire point of the movie seems to be to capitalize on the success of the original and setup a third movie to resolve all the dangling bits created in this movie. Emily Blunts presence is sorely needed but she had more sense than the writers and skipped this one. Make your own decision, but you can do a lot better with two hours of your time, like watch the first one again.
I was worried that this doesn’t have Emily Blunt. But it wasn’t a mistake. This is a pure Bro movie. Absolutely loving it.
First one was great this one as well. I'd see this movie again 👌🏻
Although this film doesn’t quite surpass the first, it was a tense film that told a story well along with some awesome performances. Not perfect, but definitely one worth checking out!
