Sicario: Day of the Soldado Reviews and Ratings
Sicario: Day of the Soldado really comes alive, in the blood, sweat and tears of the Mexicans seeking “paradiso”, one way or another, across an increasingly dangerous border.
Director Stefano Sollima can’t quite capture the brute magic of Denis Villeneuve’s first film, but Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are on top form.
…the performances by Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro are top notch. Brolin plays the clay-cold Graver with ease, while del Toro builds on the legend of his character and his ability to be Mexico’s version of Léon: The Professional. While he’s not dodging bullets, he can pull off the most outrageous feats with ease. If you enjoy the thrill of gun fights and larger-than-life characters, Sicario 2 can be an engaging experience. Just don’t expect it to make too much sense.
