Cant wait for part 3!!!!!!
Movie was slow. It dragged a lot throughout the whole movie.
A superficial sequel that lacks the first movie’s unique quirks and soul.
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.
No matter how commanding Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin might be, Soldado is a less inspired or thoughtful redo of its predecessor, jettisoning nuance for amped-up nihilism.

Movie Info & Cast
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.

Did You Know?
- The film was announced less than a month after the release of the first installment.
- At the beginning of the movie, they found three praying rugs near the border. Two of those praying rugs are facing opposite directions. The prayer rugs are meant to face Mecca and clearly the one in the middle is facing the opposite direction to the one on the right. Praying rugs usually have patterns on them, some would be random patterns like the left one. But most of them would have a building theme patterns, like the ones in the middle and the right. It could be houses, mosques, pillars, or gates. These ones would be easy to determine their orientation. Muslims steps on one end of the praying rugs and put their face on the other end, so in using their praying rugs, they keep one specific orientation. In the movie, the middle one is pointing toward the bottom of the screen while the right one was pointing up.
