Sicario: Day of the Soldado Reviews

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
October 10, 2018
And when the main task is to legitimize the new op, or somehow make the heart link up with the left-field workings, Sicario 2, or Soldado, or - inhale - Sicario: Day of the Soldado, responds with static.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 10, 2018
Day of the Soldado doesn't match the attitude of its predecessor. But it has a stacked cast, gripping layout, and enough raw action to merit a second look down the rabbit hole.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 9, 2018
A riveting successor to the 2015 original that works best as a stand-alone entry. The tone of the original film has been altered without Emily Blunt's presence, which makes this a testosterone filled boys-run-wild action flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 6, 2018
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 6, 2018
You definitely get that feeling of 'in-the-now'...these are current topics right here.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 28, 2018
Day of the Soldado pales in comparison to its predecessor, but it is still better than most of the other action movies being made these days.
August 28, 2018
Everything is broadly orchestrated without anything close to the shocking surprises Kate confronted three years ago.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 27, 2018
The problem is, because it is Sicario, of course you're going to compare it to the first Sicario and it isn't as good as the first Sicario.
August 27, 2018
Director Stefano Sollima serves up a fine, edgy piece of action for the summer. It's just that I'd hoped for more.
Full Review | Original Score: 3
August 27, 2018
It just shouldn't exist...overall, save your money.
August 27, 2018
There's something missing from Sicario: Day of the Soldado...Much like in the ill-paced third season of Narcos, I see no compelling reason for this theme to explore a sense of redemption.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
