Messy and Flawed
21 October 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When three terrorists explodes a supermarket in America, the American government believes the responsible were the Mexican cartels smuggling terrorists to America. They decide to begin a war among the cartels and an unofficial command is assigned to kidnap the daughter of a kingpin and release her in the land of another cartel. However, when the government discovers that the responsible for the terrorist attack were American citizens from New Jersey, they decide to abort the plan and kill the girl. But things go wrong and do not happen as planned.

"Sicario: Day of the Soldado" is a messy and flawed film with great action scenes. There are so many plot holes that make no sense unless the viewer is brainless. The stupid beginning is absolutely pointless. The terrorist attack to the supermarket is an excellent scene, but the attitude of the mother heading with her child toward the last terrorist in the opposite direction people are running is senseless. The scene of Isabel Reyes fighting at school is another pointless scene. Why the Mexican police officers in the seven cars that joined the three American cars start shooting the American team? Why Alejandro risks his life to save the annoying girl? How can the teenager recognize a man that he glanced at in a car for a few seconds in the parking area of a supermarket in Texas? Why take Isabel to the witness protection program? How Alejandro crossed the border and was hospitalized? There are so many other questions about this flick that would take lots of time to write. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Sicário: Dia do Soldado" ("Sicario: Day of the Soldado")
