“Sicario: Day of the Soldado” is an action film set on the Mexican-American border. The film sees the conflict from multiple angles from Benecio Del Toro’s sicario (hitman) character to Josh Brolin’s CIA agent character to the points of view of a drug cartel leader’s teenage daughter and a young Mexican-American drug mule. The film is fit to bursting with action and violence. On a good note the characters act as continuations of themselves from the first film. Like any action pic, it’s better to surrender your expectations of lofty prose and message and just enjoy the ride.

I found this film to be confusing and overlaid with over-the-top American testosterone and meddling that made me feel that it took away from the real story of human trafficking dealing with the Mexican drug cartel's.
The dialogue could have been better with character development, and how unlikely is it for a man to look not that much different after being shot in the head? Or how clueless the kidnapped daughter was at times, which seemed at a contrast for how the character initially was being portrayed. I too was confused about the ending.
Was not impressed enough or curious enough to look at the special features.

Good movie. The black-helicopter, special-ops, gung-ho, Josh-Brolin-frowning parts were great; the cerebral, spy-craft, white-collar-politics parts of it less so. No real character development (perhaps, as a sequel, it assumed you knew the characters from the first movie? I haven’t seen that first one, so didn’t). Very “highly produced” (high budget?).

First movie was better because it was easier to follow. This one was a bit confusing in parts and we still are not sure of the ending.

Really liked this sequel to Sicario, some of the same actors are back and as good as ever, a bit more of a different story line but still revolving around the drugs/smuggling trade across the southern border. Like the first one you will have to watch this a second time to feel the flow better but a really good movie, hope they do a third!

Good action movie but for some reason, it did not come across as well as the first one did. Maybe because the first one was new. As with many if not all Mexican drug cartel/DEA/US government stories, it is sometimes hard to tell who all the bad guys are and which side we are really on and for what reason. Well, of course we know the cartels are the bad guys for sure. I did not know until reading the earlier reviews that this was the second of a trilogy. I also look forward to seeing the third story.

Great story. Starts out slow and then the ending blow's you away. Cannot wait for the 3rd in the series. Great actors playing terrific characters. Outstanding.

Just revisited this movie long after seeing it when it came out and have come away with a better understanding of what the film was getting at. (The subtitles helped). Complex and yet entertaining if you can keep up with it's furious pace. This is part two of a trilogy and I am eagerly anticipating the conclusion. Well done.
