SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO

YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT - – DEN­NIS CAVERNELIS

Thriller. Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) and his shady CIA team are once again dis­rupt­ing the drug trade, but with greater fe­roc­ity as they now be­lieve drug car­tels are in league with ter­ror­ists.

They stage the kid­nap­ping of a drug lord’s teenage daugh­ter (Is­abela Moner from In­stant Fam­ily) to pit ri­val car­tels against each other, but things quickly get messier than planned.

Brolin, and Beni­cio Del Toro as Ale­jan­dro, Matt’s go-to trou­ble­maker, are good, as is Moner. But with­out Emily Blunt’s char­ac­ter from the 2015 film this se­quel – while a slick, well-made thriller– lacks the hu­man­ity to ground it. 2018. 117 MIN. 16LV.
