Benicio Del Toro is incredible, the story is gripping, it is different then the first film.
September 7, 2018
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
July 19, 2018
'Day of the Soldado' would be hard to stomach at any time. It feels particularly worthless now.

Without a humanizing element like Blunt's character, this whole grim affair is just a race to the bottom in which everyone loses.

Moner is terrific, and her character's fortunes can be read in her eyes-blazing to begin with, as she scraps with another girl in a schoolyard, but dark and blank by the end, their youthful fire doused by the violence that she has seen.

Where its predecessor, 2015's Sicario was intermittently thoughtful, this sequel is mindlessly mean-spirited.
June 29, 2018
Brolin and Del Toro inhabit their flinty-eyed antiheroes with gusto and the film, directed by Stefano Sollima...is so convinced by the gravitas of its subject matter that it sometimes approaches tragic grandeur.
June 29, 2018
"Day of the Soldado" is at its best when it sticks to its own raw brand of truth.
June 29, 2018
As if in imitation of the ruthless Mexican drug cartel its heroes go after, director Stefano Sollima's sequel decapitates, disembowels, and castrates Denis Villeneuve's beautiful, tough, and sad 2015 original.
June 29, 2018
There are moments that are quite tense, but as a whole, ideologically, I don't know what this movie is trying to say--I don't know that its that coherent.
June 29, 2018
The carnage in Day of the Soldado becomes numbing to such a degree that it's hard to care about what happens next.
June 28, 2018
At its mean, snakelike best, it's also a brutally assured commercial action picture, unburdened by the moral qualms or unnerving ambiguity of its predecessor.
June 28, 2018
{Soldado] dithers away into subplots, including one that is ludicrously contrived and seems designed to continue the franchise.
June 28, 2018
Soldado is beautifully crafted and requires some brain cells.
June 28, 2018
Day of the Soldado -- a sequel that wasn't exactly needed, which proceeds to raise complicated issues that the movie, with its simple-minded formula, isn't particularly well equipped to handle.
June 28, 2018
While "Sicario" didn't exactly beg to be a film franchise, "Soldado" proves it'll go as long as Brolin and Del Toro can stay corrupt and captivating.
June 28, 2018
Somehow Soldado gets by, thanks to strong performances.
June 28, 2018
A little goes a long way, and despite the presence of the sleepily charismatic del Toro-his beleaguered Alejandro carries heavy baggage both in his heart and beneath his eyes-the Soldado man show does grow tiresome.
June 28, 2018
"Sicario: Day of the Soldado" is a sequel that barely justifies its existence.
June 28, 2018
Although Day of the Soldado isn't as powerful as Sicario, it's a worthy follow-up.
