Denis Villeneuve’s triumphant, brutal, and dark thriller Sicario was a much celebrated and Academy award nominated film. Now the story continues with Soldado.
Starring Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, directed by Stefano Solimo, the film revolves around the FBI and a former member of the Mexican drug cartel working together to kidnap a kingpin’s daughter.
The lack of Emily Blunt here (or women, in general,) make it a lesser film than before. But ultimately, and visually, it could have the same notes. Plus, it is directed by the man who directed Suburra so he could definitely continue the film’s themes.
What do you think?
Soldado is out 2018!
