Sicario: Day of the Soldado Reviews

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 16, 2018
Day of the Soldado serves only as an overlong, unnecessary reminder of how gripping Denis Villeneuve's 2015 predecessor was.

If there is a theme in this film, I would venture to guess that it's right there in the title. The soldier, el soldado, has his day and his way throughout.

Benicio Del Toro soars, giving an outstanding performance with the same intensity as his Oscar-winning performance in Traffic (2000) although confusing & thin script.

Soldado is simply a hollow hell.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Last 7 minutes is cluttered with the results of good intentions or more likely the foundation of a future good movie.

What we have is a sequel that's enjoyable enough, but in the end it's a sequel that didn't need to happen nor do I think it's a sequel that was planned to happen.
June 25, 2018
With shootout after shootout, the second Sicario film feels like it's not really going in any particular direction.
June 28, 2018
The problem is that this is a Sicario that wants to be a Logan.

Every plot point is straight off the Fox News conspiracy reel.
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-
July 13, 2018
The second upholds the franchise's tradition of a wild, confusing celebration of brute force and violence within the context of the war on drugs, with a touch of terrorism.
July 12, 2018
It's nihilistic for the sake of being nihilistic and lacks any grounding that could help cultivate an emotional core to anchor yourself to.
June 28, 2018
If you enjoyed the original Sicario, this is a subpar effort on every level, particularly in regards to directing and acting.
June 25, 2018
Considering recent events, where the government has been separating immigrant children from their parents, on some levels this movie hits a dissonant chord.
July 2, 2018
Someone, somewhere, said, "What if we made a sequel to 2015's Sicario, but got rid of all the good stuff?"

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is two hours of nothing, unless superficial cynicism is something.
June 29, 2018
That's what's so disheartening: the movie dramatizes a peculiarly American, specifically 21st-century form of political violence-and flubs the politics.
June 28, 2018
You never get sucked into its frames in the same way Villeneuve and Deakins lured you in two years ago. That's the problem with "Soldado": There's no escaping the fact that they already got it right the first time around.
Full Review | Original Score: C
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
