Our Sicario: Day of the Soldado movie review starts with the man in charge–FBI agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin). He and his team head straight for Mexican Cartel territory. And for additional muscle, Matt brings along killing expert Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro).
So, what’s the plan? Stop Mexican drug cartels from operating in the U.S. This gives Matt a reason to, “Start a war with everyone”.
The situation heats up when Alejandro kidnaps Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner). No worries she’s just a kingpin’s daughter.
And, although the mission is planned perfectly, things go sideways. For example, during an ambush the good guys lose Isabela. Alejandro decides to find her alone—allowing Matt to get back across the border.
Alejandro and Isabela face certain death. Because the odds of successfully crossing back into the states are slim. But we see a different side of Alejandro. He risks his life for Isabela’s.
Great action scenes, as in Sicario 1. And the movie keeps your attention. Despite an absent Emily Blunt and Daniel Kaluuya, Soldado is still entertaining. So, what’s the Sicario: Day of the Soldado movie review verdict? Watch it.
