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.
January 8, 2019
This film comes off more as a spin-off than a sequel to its morally ambiguous, psychological predecessor but offers a high-tension, fast paced action drama thriller that is just as potent.
December 27, 2018
Día del soldado contiene la suficiente acción como para complacer a los que van a buscar eso. En todo lo demás se queda corta a la original.
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.
December 14, 2018
This isn't a cautionary tale; just a story of horrific happenstance, which is all the more chilling given the stark reality of this systemic problem.
November 4, 2018
Lacks most of the gravitas and style of its predecessor but Brolin and Del Toro make up for a multitude of sins (or, in this case, a multitude of mediocrities).
November 3, 2018
Soldado is simply a hollow hell.
October 31, 2018
An often shocking, uncompromising and thrilling sequel that does well to build upon its predecessor's foundations. It's no Villeneuve, but it's damn good.
October 31, 2018
Never quite better than Sicario..., Day Of The Soldado is nevertheless an excellent horror film masquerading as a border action thriller.
October 30, 2018
Although the moral angle is noticeably missing, this sequel by Suburra director Stefano Sollima does what it does extremely well and should be a hit with action fans.
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 17, 2018
There's a sort of watchability to Day of the Soldado ... if you can avoid letting the omnipresent references to the real world drag you out of it.
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
This isn't the stunning success of the original, but it's still a solid film.
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.
October 11, 2018
A riveting successor to the 2015 original that works best as a stand-alone entry. The tone of the original film has been altered without Emily Blunt's presence, which makes this a testosterone filled boys-run-wild action flick.
October 11, 2018
Day of the Soldado doesn't match the attitude of its predecessor. But it has a stacked cast, gripping layout, and enough raw action to merit a second look down the rabbit hole.
September 7, 2018
Every moment of Sicario: Day of the Soldado is soaked in an unilluminating and easy cynicism.
