NEW YORK: There's an oppressive bleakness to the brutal action-thriller "Sicario: Day of the Soldado," but with the faces of Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro above the flak jackets, what are you going to do? Amid the dust cloud of violence that settles over the "Sicario" sequel, nothing stands out like the furrowed brow of Brolin's grimace or the cold, worn-out stare of del Toro. With such sunken, world-weary eyes, in the heyday of film noir, del Toro and Brolin would have made a killing. Matt Graver (Brolin) and his cartel lawyer turned undercover ally Alejandro Gillick (del Toro) are again called into action in a black-ops mission along the Mexico border, this time without the benefit of Emily Blunt, who starred in Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" (2015).No, Graver and just-as-grave Gillick have seen it all, and Blunt's absence leaves "Day of Soldado" without the mounting sense of dread that defined the original film.
