When Matt travels to recruit Alejandro, the establishing shot reads 'Bogota, Colombia'; however, the scene clearly takes place in 5 de Mayo street in downtown Mexico City. Besides characteristic buildings, there is a Vittorio Forti (A Mexican gentleman's clothes retailer) billboard, and another one, showing Palacio de Bellas Artes, a prominent cultural center located a few blocks away.

The trailer straight up lied, I watched it and felt like they showed the entire movie, but I was pleasantly surprised to see there were many other plot points that were not in the trailer and kept you interested. Yes the trailer lessened some of the action scenes because you already see it, but there was still plenty here to enjoy, and I enjoyed it very much. First of all, they added a completely unmentioned plot point that was very interesting and in ways kept you guessing. The trailer also makes you think that the film is about Brolin vs. Del Toro, but this could not be further from the point. I would have walked out if it was exactly like the trailer, but thankfully it was not.
And yes, its not necessarily as good as the first one, but sequels rarely stand up to their predecessor, BUT sequels also rarely are as good as this one. Most of the time we either get pitiful attempts at capturing the success of the original, or ones that god completely off the reservation and blow it. BBut this sequel still captured the feel of the first, the emotion of the first, and the great dialog of the first. I can't tell you how many times the theater all clapped and laughed at the wonderful back and forth conversations between Josh Brolin's character and his superiors. All in all this was certainly much better than I expected, and much more deserving of respect than the vast majority of sequels.
