Plot Holes Bigger than the Mexican Border

First of all, it's a stupid title. What does it mean "Day of the Soldier" because it's not about a day. OK, forget that.

The movie goes from an orgy of violence, bearded men screaming Alahu akbar (Man, am I ever sick of that stupid, overused phrase) with bombs bursting everywhere. Then on to a raid of a Somali camp. Huh?

We're promised a gloves off war against the cartels, but instead we get an hour and a half of babysitting gone horribly wrong.

The movie started to go off the rails in the scene with the girls fighting at the school. Why do we need to see that? Answer: we don't. Why even have a kid actor in it for anything other than the bare minimum? She was terrible, like almost all kid actors. They gave her way, way, way, too much screen time which could have been used to give more important elements in the story a chance to speak, like her father, to name one.

So her father paid off the Mexican police to shoot the heck out of her convoy and her vehicle? Does he want her dead? That made no sense at all.

Once again, it suffers from the typical Hollywood disease of not making a whole lot of sense. There is no way they'd bring the girl to the USA. I guess they tried to address this in the video call with the Secretary of Defense when they said they "didn't have the infrastructure in Mexico." Pretty weak writing.

Oh my god, so the little gang-banger kid saw him once in a parking lot a few days earlier and recognizes him in a completely different context? Once again, a totally one in a billion coincidence is needed to carry the plot. And like Alejandro is even going to trust some idiot coyote to get him across the border? I thought they just told us that the cartels controlled all of the human trafficking? So why would he walk right into their territory?

And there is no reason on earth why the U.S. would kill the girl and the agent. It's just too stupid to believe. I thought the movie was going to be about causing a huge war among the cartels. It turned out to be about a guy babysitting a teenager.

"She'll go into witness protection." WHAT? That would make no sense at all.

And then the end is not an end; it's just a setup for the sequel. Count me out.

Unfulfilling experience

Where the original Sicario was carried by the suspence created by the contrasting naive FBI-agent Macy (Emily Blunt), the cynical CIA-agent Matt (Josh Brolin) and the vengeful Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) as ruthless sicario turned against the drug carlets operating along the US-Mexico border, the sequal lacks this tension and becomes an analogue and rather predictable story. Decent acting performances, and attempts to recreate the original dark athmosphere cannot save the weak plot, where several interesting issues launched at the start are not followed through. This makes for a rather unfulfilling experience, despite hints of another sequal.

A highly recommended movie to watch

I really like the military-themed movies, especially when presented in such a mesmerizing way as this Sicario movie.

This film gives a fairly intense feeling of tension from beginning to end. The initial scene of the movie really makes us thrilled by the horror as a result of the terrorist cruelty against innocent citizens.

Josh Brolin has played a very good and stunning character for Matt Graver. We can feel the aura of terror, firmness and professionalism from Matt just by looking at body language and Josh Brolin's appearance. He really makes himself look very tough and ready to avenge the terrorist cruelty in a way that will satisfy us.

Benicio Del Toro has also given the impression of revenge that is so scary that we can feel that the retaliation will be very appropriate with the cruelty of the terrorists themselves.

The battle scenes between the military under Josh Brolin's leadership with the cartel members and with the evil Mexican police have been shown to be very realistic, cruel and frightening. Every splash of blood is seen as a cruelty on one side, but on the other hand satisfying.

In movies like Rambo or James Bond, we see that the bullets and deaths of someone, especially the evil one, seem so easy and cheap. But in movies like Sicario, the death of a human really feels like a death that gives a sense of fear.

I highly recommend you to watch this movie.
