This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Maybe now isn’t the best time to release a movie about the US government kidnapping and attempting to murder a Mexican child.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado brings up really explosive subjects, but the movie lacks a compelling hand and a focused script to address those subjects with any weight. Perhaps if the last 15 minutes didn’t feel like the most obvious setup for a sequel since Tomb Raider the movie could have been something more. It’s a big miss.
