Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin are back in what looks to be an epic sequel to the smoldering Sicario.
In SICARIO: Day of the Soldado, the series begins a new chapter. In the drug war, there are no rules – and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter to inflame the conflict – but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for.
Sicario was one of our favorite films of 2015.
Written by Texan Taylor Sheridan, Sicario saw an “idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.”
It was a slow burn on an action pic and well worth checking out before the sequel lands June 29.
