SICARIO: Day of the Soldado

SICARIO: Day of the Soldado poster

Janet's TAKE: #SICARIO:DayOfTheSoldado could have been a good story, but ends up being thin on plot and character development. Grade/D

Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin carry the action, yet the film never rises above predictable. While the ending clearly leaves it open for another sequel, there is no real payoff.

Directed by Stefano Sollima

Starring Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Catherine Keener

Synopsis:
In SICARIO: Day of the Soldado, the series begins a new chapter.  In the drug war, there are no rules – and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter to inflame the conflict – but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for. -Columbia Pictures
