Stefano Sollima drops the arthouse pretension of Villeneuve's original, instead delivering a hard-hitting intelligent action/thriller.

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

It's dark, it's violent, it's unforgiving and it's very, very good.
July 18, 2019
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.
July 17, 2019
It is a remarkable sequel that loses some of the virtues of the first segment, but successfully improves other aspects. [Full Review in Spanish]

A high level narrative that stands out both in its most calm moments and in action sequences. [Full Review in Spanish]

When battle-scarred CIA agent Matt Graver and lawyer turned loner Alejandro meet up in Bogota in this hellish sequel from director Stefano Sollima, it's with the specific intention of raising cartel hell
June 4, 2019
Del Toro's back on the rampage in Stefano Sollima's slick sequel.
May 31, 2019
There are points early on where Sicario feels like watching a masterclass on how to create a truly nerve-wracking thriller.
May 1, 2019
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

Soldado may occasionally veer off from moments that could really dig deeper into the societal issues at hand, but it still raises many questions that are significant considering what's going on in our world.

The actors, especially Del Toro, really carry this film while director Stefano Sollima has delivered an engrossing drama.

Benicio Del Toro is incredible, the story is gripping, it is different then the first film.
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.
February 6, 2019
Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a fair action thriller. It just doesn't live up to the film that came before.
January 8, 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.

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.
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.
