Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin star in "Sicario: Day of the Soldado," the sequel to the Oscar-nominated thriller "Sicario," directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Blade Runner 2049"). In the film, the American government conspires to start a war between drug cartels in Mexico, to justify starting a war. Matt Graver (Brolin) and Alejandro Villick (Del Toro) kidnap the daughter of a cartel boss, Isabela (Isabela Moner) but when she witnesses too much, their loyalty to one another is tested.
Witney Seibold says that "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" feels "instantly dated" from a political perspective, but praises the film's "assured and energetic direction," and "gritty, intense action."
