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).

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.

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 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
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.

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.

You definitely get that feeling of 'in-the-now'...these are current topics right here.

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 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.

August 23, 2018
The high-intensity action sequences are still present, but they don't carry the same gravity; instead, they feel like shootouts for the sake of incorporating a gunfight.
August 14, 2018
"Sicario: Day of the Soldado" isn't a bad action movie, it just isn't even in the same league as the first one, so it feels like a disappointment.

It's a fictional look at all-too-real events.

Del Toro is a shining light. When the picture works, it is purely his.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 23, 2018
By itself [the film] is a harmless action thriller, which has... a couple of interesting ideas and good characters here and there. [Full review in Spanish]

July 19, 2018
suggests just how blurry the lines are between right and wrong, lawful and criminal, just and unjust
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 18, 2018
It's not as strong as its 2015 predecessor but Sicario: Day of the Soldado still features some great pieces that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

This Sicario may have more talking points than it can comfortably hold. It's often confusing, and its political irony is thick enough to slow the story down in spots. But it'll make you squirm.
July 18, 2018
The fit is not perfect and feels too convenient, but to director Sollima's credit, their psychological shifts are believable, if not completely understandable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
