Sicario 2: Soldado
DIRECTOR Stefano Sollima
CAST Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Catherine Keener, Isabela Moner
Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro star in the new thriller as Mexican drug cartels start smuggling terrorists across the US border.
FBI agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) again calls on mysterious undercover operative Alejandro Gillick (Benicio del Toro) when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the US border. In an operation designed to incite war between rival cartels, they kidnap Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner), the daughter of a drug lord. The mission goes awry when it is discovered by the Mexican government and Gillick goes rogue as he seeks to protect the young woman. A scorching thriller.
(2018 USA / Italy 122 mins)
Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a more explosive and action-packed film, and one lacking the grace of the superior original. Yet it still blessedly throws viewers into the deep end and expects us to figure things out as quickly as Alejandro and Graver do—or end up as ambushed as they just might. It’s a more accessible vehicle, but it’s still driving toward a pure cut of that same gritty modern Western high. In a summer of sequels, and in a season of Josh Brolin seemingly appearing in most of them, what a nice surprise it is for Sicario 2 to be the best of the bunch. David Crow, Den of Geek
