I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Where the original Sicario was carried by the suspence created by the contrasting naive FBI-agent Macy (Emily Blunt), the cynical CIA-agent Matt (Josh Brolin) and the vengeful Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) as ruthless sicario turned against the drug carlets operating along the US-Mexico border, the sequal lacks this tension and becomes an analogue and rather predictable story. Decent acting performances, and attempts to recreate the original dark athmosphere cannot save the weak plot, where several interesting issues launched at the start are not followed through. This makes for a rather unfulfilling experience, despite hints of another sequal.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado turns out to be a worthy sequel to a film that I never imagined would become a franchise in Sicario. Sicario the original was one of my favorite films of 2015. It was a cold, smartly executed thriller that can kept me on the edge of my seats to the last second. Day of the Soldado maintains that feeling for the most part. Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin turn in great performances again. This one may not attract everyone because it is dark and brutal.
It didn't feel there was as much action as in the first one . a bit draggy at times . no head dizzying cg . plenty of senseless killing . a nice set up for the next episode . hopefully it will be well directed .
Loved this film! The tension keeps you riveted to the screen. Brilliant direction, cinematography and acting.
