Here's hoping the inevitable third installment brings Emily Blunt back into the fold, so we can at least look forward to a character whose moral compass is still in working order.

The only argument is whether Sicario 2: The Sickest Ario is more casually offensive than it is lazily bad.
May 21, 2019
It invokes real world issues and flirts with real world crises, but it has nothing persuasive to say about any of it.
April 16, 2019
If the first Sicario was a guided missile, arrowing in on its target with lethal efficiency, Soldado is a wayward RPG fizzling out somewhere over the arid landscape.
February 12, 2019
A sequel that is competently made but ultimately aimless and ineffective.
February 10, 2019
This time round there is more focus on the action and violence and less emphasis on character, which is detrimental to the film as a whole.
January 31, 2019
A poorly written blockbuster filled with racist stereotypes. Hollywood should know better.
January 19, 2019
The nihilistic wet dream of a 15-year-old suburban kid whose understanding of geopolitics comes from Call of Duty and Reddit.
December 22, 2018
Subpar on every level. It almost seems unfair to compare it to 2015's dream team behind the camera.
December 15, 2018
Not quite sub-par, not entirely uninspiring, Soldado is definitely just a sequel for sequel's sake.
November 3, 2018
Soldado is simply a hollow hell.
October 27, 2018
If this were one of those reviews that run in a box at the side of the page it would read: "A relentlessly brutal and stupid film that does no-one any favours."
October 16, 2018
Day of the Soldado serves only as an overlong, unnecessary reminder of how gripping Denis Villeneuve's 2015 predecessor was.
October 11, 2018
And when the main task is to legitimize the new op, or somehow make the heart link up with the left-field workings, Sicario 2, or Soldado, or - inhale - Sicario: Day of the Soldado, responds with static.
September 7, 2018
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
August 28, 2018
Everything is broadly orchestrated without anything close to the shocking surprises Kate confronted three years ago.
August 28, 2018
The problem is, because it is Sicario, of course you're going to compare it to the first Sicario and it isn't as good as the first Sicario.
August 27, 2018
It just shouldn't exist...overall, save your money.
August 27, 2018
There's something missing from Sicario: Day of the Soldado...Much like in the ill-paced third season of Narcos, I see no compelling reason for this theme to explore a sense of redemption.
August 20, 2018
Unlike its more artful antecedent, Day of the Soldado features an array of striking dead ends, glaring red herrings, unceremonious deaths and absent figureheads.
