February 20, 2019
Benicio is so good in this and the action so compelling that you almost forget how over the top and problematic the story is... Almost.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 12, 2019
A sequel that is competently made but ultimately aimless and ineffective.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 9, 2019
This time round there is more focus on the action and violence and less emphasis on character, which is detrimental to the film as a whole.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a fair action thriller. It just doesn't live up to the film that came before.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 31, 2019
A poorly written blockbuster filled with racist stereotypes. Hollywood should know better.
January 18, 2019
The nihilistic wet dream of a 15-year-old suburban kid whose understanding of geopolitics comes from Call of Duty and Reddit.
January 7, 2019
This film comes off more as a spin-off than a sequel to its morally ambiguous, psychological predecessor but offers a high-tension, fast paced action drama thriller that is just as potent.

Día del soldado contiene la suficiente acción como para complacer a los que van a buscar eso. En todo lo demás se queda corta a la original.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/ 10
December 21, 2018
Subpar on every level. It almost seems unfair to compare it to 2015's dream team behind the camera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 15, 2018
Not quite sub-par, not entirely uninspiring, Soldado is definitely just a sequel for sequel's sake.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
December 14, 2018
This isn't a cautionary tale; just a story of horrific happenstance, which is all the more chilling given the stark reality of this systemic problem.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
November 4, 2018
Lacks most of the gravitas and style of its predecessor but Brolin and Del Toro make up for a multitude of sins (or, in this case, a multitude of mediocrities).
Full Review | Original Score: B

Soldado is simply a hollow hell.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
October 31, 2018
An often shocking, uncompromising and thrilling sequel that does well to build upon its predecessor's foundations. It's no Villeneuve, but it's damn good.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 31, 2018
Never quite better than Sicario..., Day Of The Soldado is nevertheless an excellent horror film masquerading as a border action thriller.
October 30, 2018
Although the moral angle is noticeably missing, this sequel by Suburra director Stefano Sollima does what it does extremely well and should be a hit with action fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 26, 2018
If this were one of those reviews that run in a box at the side of the page it would read: "A relentlessly brutal and stupid film that does no-one any favours."
October 17, 2018
There's a sort of watchability to Day of the Soldado ... if you can avoid letting the omnipresent references to the real world drag you out of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
October 16, 2018
Day of the Soldado serves only as an overlong, unnecessary reminder of how gripping Denis Villeneuve's 2015 predecessor was.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 11, 2018
This isn't the stunning success of the original, but it's still a solid film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
