Critic Reviews for Sicario: Day of the Soldado
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
'Day of the Soldado' would be hard to stomach at any time. It feels particularly worthless now.
If there is a theme in this film, I would venture to guess that it's right there in the title. The soldier, el soldado, has his day and his way throughout.
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.
Audience Reviews for Sicario: Day of the Soldado
Not as memorable or as unique as the first installment in the trilogy, but as a stand-alone summer shooter it does more than enough to satisfy your appetite for action sequences.
The sequel to the grim thriller offers more of the same: a realistic and violent look at terrorism, trafficking and the need to get dirty to win such wars. Emily Blunt as the moral compass of the first film did not return. The sequel looks almost as great and the mood is quite similar anyhow. In the end, the plot falls a bit short, but still makes for some grim entertainment. wonderfully tense situations and a couple of surprises.
The first Sicario was almost unbearable to watch, one of those films that keeps you glued to the screen for the duration. The sequel is something different and works for the better part of the film, but there is something missing. The action of the film is relentless with some of one of the best action scenes coming around the half way point, it reminded me of Clear and Present Danger. The biggest issue with the film is overall story, it doesn't have that Emily Blunt character to explore the landscape. The cast are impressive and the final confrontation is brutal, leaving us with some graphic imaging. I hope there is a third film and fourth, they should change the director with each film though, maybe even allow the writer to take a chance, he did very well with Wind River. 28/09/2018.
