Emerges as a dynamic action drama in its own right. Making sure of that is writer Taylor Sheridan, who's hatched a compelling new yarn that triggers rugged, full-bodied work from returning leading men Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.
Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin are heading back to the border in Sicario: Day of the Soldado. The drug cartels have begun trafficking a new kind of product across the US-Mexico border: terrorists. To combat this development in the drug war, Federal agent Matt Graver (Brolin) once again calls on the unpredictable operative Alejandro Gillick (Del Toro) to help him incite a conflict between rival cartels, pitting them against each other. To do so, Alejandro kidnaps the daughter of a top cartel kingpin… the same kingpin that had his family killed. As the girl becomes collateral damage in a war with no rules, her fate may force the two men to question what it is they’re even fighting for anymore.
Directed by Stefano Sollima and written by Taylor Sheridan (who also wrote 2015’s Sicario), the film also stars Catherine Keener, Isabela Moner, Matthew Modine, and Jeffrey Donovan.
