Not a complete waste but a questionable start to a franchise that doesn't need to be one.

Despite all [the plot holes], "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" remains an effective nail-biter.

Here's hoping the inevitable third installment brings Emily Blunt back into the fold, so we can at least look forward to a character whose moral compass is still in working order.

It's dark, it's violent, it's unforgiving and it's very, very good.

While it wouldn't be fair to advise potential viewers to just say no to Sicario: Day of the Soldado, it would be acceptable to recommend that they approach it with lofty expectations held in check.

There are points early on where Sicario feels like watching a masterclass on how to create a truly nerve-wracking thriller.
May 21, 2019
It invokes real world issues and flirts with real world crises, but it has nothing persuasive to say about any of it.

It's a brutal film, and not one necessarily viewed for enjoyment, but such is the power of its creators that we can't help but watch what unfolds in front of us

If the first Sicario was a guided missile, arrowing in on its target with lethal efficiency, Soldado is a wayward RPG fizzling out somewhere over the arid landscape.

A sequel that is competently made but ultimately aimless and ineffective.
