This time it’s all about the artwork and with an illustrious, cultivated and cogent approach to foundate the narrative that settles viewers once more into the deadly and dark battleground South of the border where, as the tagline suggests, therr are “No Rules This Time”. Stefano Sollima helms this time around with a script by Taylor Sheridan who masterfully executed Denis Villeneuve’s inaugural hit which won hearts at Cannes in 2015.
In SICARIO, Day of the Soldado, the series begins a new chapter. In the drug war, there are no rules – and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter to inflame the conflict – but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for.
