SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO is Getting Great Buzz and is Said to Be an Amazing Sequel


Sicario: Day of the Soldado is one of my most anticipated films of the year. I loved director Denis Villeneuve‘s first movie and everything that I've seen from this sequel has looked incredible. Well, it sounds like the movie actually turned out as amazing as it looks! At least that's what the first wave of reactions have been. 

The sequel was directed by Stefano Sollima, and a lot of fans wondered if a director other than Villeneuve would be able to pull it off, and it looks like he did. The buzz you'll read below is overwhelmingly positive. Of course, he wouldn't have been able to do it without the script written by returning screenwriter Taylor Sheridan.

Not only is the movie praised, but so are the performances by Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro. Before we get to what the critics are saying, here's what Denis Villeneuve said about the film in an interview with IndieWire:

"[The sequel is] a knockout. Sollima did a masterful follow up to ‘Sicario.’ I was blown away! Having seen his film, I’m proud to say that Stefano did an impressive, powerful, masterful follow-up,” Villeneuve told IndieWire. “It’s a hell of a good movie!"

Now, here's what the critics are saying:

Stefano Sollima directs Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which stars Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner, Catherine Keener, and Jeffrey Donovan.

FBI agent Matt Graver calls on mysterious operative Alejandro Gillick when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the U.S. border. The war escalates even further when Alejandro kidnaps a top kingpin’s daughter to deliberately increase the tensions. When the young girl is seen as collateral damage, the two men will determine her fate as they question everything that they are fighting for.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado opens in theaters on June 29, 2018.
