Don't listen to the critics...this movie is great.
I expected to be disappointed with this movie after watching some of the trailers painting it as an all-out shooter flick which I feel would have been a stark contrast to the meticulous plotting of the first one. Instead, I would say this measures up in tone to the one before. The build up is methodical and intense, the actors are all terrific, and the plot is not weak like some of the reviews here would suggest. Definitely worth a watch!
Another great movie
Josh Brolin killed it in this movie
Better than the first one
I thought it was great. Those that said there was no story did not understand the movie. I enjoyed it.

Benicio and Brolin do it again! Well done gentlemen!!!!
I saw Sicario in theaters twice and love that movie so much. Sicario is one of my favorite movies. So when I heard that it was getting a sequel, initially, I was excited. But then it turned out that Denis Villeneuve and Emily Blunt weren’t returning. Denis Villeneuve was the reason the first movie was such a success, the pacing and the editing of the script resulted in a unique and tense movie.
This sequel had a lot going for it. The cinematography and camera work were good (not Roger Deacons good, but good), and Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin have good onscreen chemistry. But the story and the character inconsistencies were distracting. Alejandro and Matt were not the same characters as they were in the first movie. Soldado versions of these characters had hard exteriors but soft insides, which was the opposite of their initial character. Plus, Alejandro’s motivation in the movie made zero sense and the supporting characters were all annoying.
I can not recommend this movie. If you didn’t like the first movie, maybe you’ll like this one.
Really good movie.
Lots of action. You have understand whats going on at the border to be able to understand and enjoy the movie. Also, the way the US agents operates. You will find out how much the US Government is involve of what going on with the Cartels.
It seems that there will be a 3rd movie.
They left it open for a sequel; sometimes that’s not best plot wise. Showing the main shootout from a helpless girl’s perspective was innovative.
First one is better!
Pretty drawn out and slow moving.
Action packed movie!
Good action packed movie. Don’t over think it. Good plot. Just watch and enjoy! Great acting!
Nothing like the first one
If you’re here hoping this would be anything like the first one, move on.
