Watch Sicario: Day of the Soldado full movie online free – I really enjoyed the first movie. Sicario, day of the soldier takes it to a whole new level. So Shelibear and I went to a preview showing of “Sicario, Day of the Soldado” last night. This is a must see movie to understand the border relations we have with Mexico. It is very intense and graphic, with themes too complicated for younger minds (under 16), but a powerful movie. This movie really runs you through a gamut of emotions and the cinematography is amazing. The story line is amazing. Josh Brolin is really good you will have conflicting emotions and you can really feel his dilemma. Benicio is freaking fantastic. His best movie ever. I am a big fan. I highly recommend this movie.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by Brennandube – Decent enough sequel, step-down from its predecessor.
SPOILER: ‘Day of the Soldado’ is directed by Stefano Sollima (did not direct the first) and is written by Taylor Sheridan who helmed the writing of the first film. Josh Brolin and Benecio Del Toro reprise their roles in the sequel but Emily Blunt does not return. The first film was quite the fulfilling tale, it included a well-told story that was portrayed wonderfully by the actors within the movie. Although the first films finish wasn’t uplifting or happy, it did feel fulfilling. This sequel did surprise me and it’s very clear when watching this film that the story is somewhat abrupt. However, I am thankful for a sequel because Benecio Del Toro really did steal the show in the first film and he truly is such a draw. His character again steals the show in this film despite in my opinion, not being as motivated.
The cartel are now smuggling terrorists into the United States and the U.S government has officially put the cartel on the terrorist watch list. This means the DEA have way more jurisdiction and leeway to go in and basically start a war with the cartel. Here we have our movie. This film in my opinion, is much less layered one than the first and much less motivated as well. The pace lacks at times and that is very evident in the middle portion of the film as it begins to transcend into a very different direction as well as slow down quite a bit. I do believe Sheridan did the best job possible at writing this sequel and I am glad Blunts character was left out of the storyline. She did a great job in the first film but her presence I can tell would feel forced in ‘Day of the Soldado’ so props to the filmmakers and Sheridan for not being tacky with this movie.
‘Day of the Soldado’ offers up some good action and some truly brutal sequences. Josh Brolin gets a lot more hands on in this film and he is always fun to watch. This truly is the year of Brolin as he has ‘Infinity War’, ‘Deadpool 2’ and ‘Day of the Soldado’ now out. Benecio Del Toro does awesome again as previously stated and although I strongly feel his character motivations were rather blurred in this film, he offers a well enough acting job that it gets pulled off. Well done again, Benecio. The supporting cast does a solid job and younger actress Isabela Moner does a pretty good job in this movie. The other young actor who plays a larger role in this film, Elijah Rodriguez, also does a good job despite again some flaws in his story arc.
The score is incredible just like the first film. Many of the same riffs are used in this movie and all around the sounds and music really help to enhance the story and the tension. This movie, just like the first, does a great job at building tension and intensity. ‘Day of the Soldado’ does lose its main drive and waivers from its strongest plot points as the film progresses, and where the first film was a truly realistic take, this one has times that feel far-fetched and a couple sequences that feel out of place. This resulted in a loss of proper pacing and the movie feeling like a stepdown from the first.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by katka-klimo – Visually good, but confusing plot
The movie was good entertainment, had nice action scenes and some of the original’s great aerial views, but once compared to the original story it seems to be an incoherent mix with separate groups that should never make it into one and the same movie clogging it with all kinds of criminal motives introduced only to be abandoned 10 minutes later and pretty much never seen again. As a result, there is little time to show any characters in greater detail or even develop them.
Then there is the timing and placement of events in the movie. A scene is shot at night because daytime makes no sense, but is followed by daytime scenes only to look good on the screen despite the fact that they should only be minutes apart. Characters cross the border with a lot of effort, but the reason remains unclear. Some decisions make no sense. Much of the movie is taking place just somewhere in the middle of nowhere and kind of ends up going nowhere as well.
Despite all that disappointment I mentioned above, I’m thinking of seeing it again (something I rarely do), because it was visually good and it is not the usual predictable one man show other action movies tend to be.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by rockman18 – Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)
For my money, Denis Villeneuve is one of the best directors going today. Sicario was great, and still wasn’t even one of his best films. I felt like most people when I heard about the film getting a sequel. I wondered if it was really necessary? Obviously, I decided to check it out (because when you have a MoviePass, why the hell not?) Sicario 2 is definitely a very solid film, it pales a bit in comparison to the first but for the most part is a competent effort.
The film sees the return of Alejandro Gillick and Matt Graver, played by Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin respectively. The duo team up to take on the Mexican cartel, who are suspected of transporting Islamic terrorists to the states. The plan is a ruthless one that involves kidnapping the daughter of an established kingpin. The leads get involved in a battle around the border that becomes a tense battle of life and death. Interestingly, Emily Blunt does not return for this film.
I’d like to compliment the score first and foremost. It is tense, nail biting, and foreboding. The cinematography is still very good, even if it doesn’t include Roger Deakins from the first film. Brolin and especially del Toro are great in their roles and are a strong point as to why this sequel works. The film is a little looser and tamer in plot than the first but it still brings the gory violence and gun fights. It’s still intense and is close to rivaling the first film in many regards.
Is this sequel necessary? Not at all. It’s a good film for sure (although the ending sequences leaves a lot more to be desired and not as strong as can be). However, it didn’t need to be made and is obviously setting up for a trilogy which is even less needed. I’ll still tune in for del Toro’s Gillick. As stated earlier this is still a competently made film that is mostly satisfying. The film has a really terrible title name by the way, should have just stuck with Sicario: Soldado.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by adonis98-743-186503 – We never even needed a Sequel…
The drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro. To be honest I was never a huge fan of Sicario the first one, I found it extremely boring and overrated and unfortunately the same goes with the sequel as well. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro were pretty good but the storyline but also the pacing just dragged and the film is so slow that will put viewers to sleep. I’ve also heard rumors that a 3rd one might get made as well? eventually? and I’m just saying this “please stop” we don’t need a Sicario 2 or an Escape Plan 2 or anything regarding sequels to movies that never ended with something more happening to their story.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by Niki Kefala – Del Toro at his bests
“Soldado” explores the devastating toll of terrorism and drug-trafficking on the children caught in the crossfire. There are moments that are quite tense, but as a whole, ideologically, I don’t know what this movie is trying to say. Where its predecessor, 2015’s “Sicario” was thoughtful and interesting, this sequel is mean-spirited. Benicio Del Toro is giving an outstanding performance with the same intensity as his Oscar-winning performance in “Traffic”. I must admit, Del Toro is so good he almost makes the film worth seeing. A fair amount of effort went into this production, but the results are simply unsatisfying. The movie is confusing and the script is not so strong. It is more complex than the first.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado review by Paul Allaer – Too convoluted and nowhere near as compelling as the original “Sicario”
“Sicario: Day of the Soldado” (2018 release; 122 min.) brings the on-going chronicles of Matt Graver and Alejandro Gillick. As the movie opens, Middle Eastern suicide bombers attack a grocery store in Kansas City, killing dozens. We switch to Somalia, where Graver is interrogating a suspect with information on how those suicide bombers got into the US (via Mexico, of course). The US Secretary of Defense recalls Graves and orders him to do whatever is necessary to stop this from happening again. Graves recruits Gillick out of retirement in Bogota, and decides that the best way forward is to start a new war between Mexican the drug cartels… At this point we are less than 15 min, into the movie, but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: while Sicario 2 is once again written by Taylor Sheridan, this time it is directed by Italian director Stefano Sollima, who made the excellent Italian mob drama “Suburra” a few years ago, This is his English language feature debut. Sollima takes on a near-impossible task, stepping into the shoes of Denis Villeneuve, to bring a worthy sequel of what was for me the best movie of 2015, period. Starting with a weak opening (remind me, what exactly is the connection between the Middle Eastern suicide bombers and the Mexican drug cartels?), to then work its way into an all-out battle between the “good” guys (Graves and Gillick) and the “bad ” guys, the story line quickly becomes way too convoluted for its own good. Contrast this to the original “Sicario”, where the story line had a laser-sharp focus from beginning to end. Josh Brolin (as Graves) and Benicio del Toro (as Gillick) bring top performances, but cannot hide the fact that this sequel seems to have no purpose of existing as such. Not to mention that the character played by Emily Blunt in the original “Sicario” is greatly missed. Beware: if you think the original “Sicario” was (too) violent, you are in for a shock, as the amount of violence in “Soldado” is borderline over the top.Despite all these negatives, there still are a number of sequences that are highly enjoyable, in particular the hair-raising traks across the US Mexican border. It is in those moments that we rediscover what mde the original “Sicario” such a classic in the first place. Alas, those scenes cannot make up for the obvious flaws of “Soldado”… Last but certainly not least, the movie is dedicated to the memory of Johann Johannson, the Ielandic composer who scored the outstanding soundtrack of the original “Sicario” and sadly took his own life in February of this year (the score for “Soldado” is by another Icelandic musician, Hildur Guðnadóttir).
“Sicario: Day of the Soldado” was one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018 for me. It opened wide this weekend, and I couldn’t wait to see it. The Friday evening screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati was sold out to the last seat. It may well be that “Soldado” turns out to be great counter-programming to the popcorn mega-blockbusters that are “Incredibles 2” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”, but that does not take away that “Soldado” is a flawed sequel to the original “Sicario”. I encourage you to check it out, be it in the theater, on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
