The drug war on the US-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.

Is Villeneuve doing this? If not, I'd be worried.

Ugh.


This is like that time I found out Gareth Edwards wasn't directing the Monsters sequel.

I'm in for this, but I doubt it will hit a screen within 500 miles of me.

Thanks Ruddo.

New trailer for Day of the Soldado. I already miss Villeneuve's sense of style, but I'm still al over this one.

I’m glad he didn’t make it. I hope I never see another one of his movies as long as I live.

So this was better than I had thought it would be, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who really enjoyed the first one.

I believe Burt said he liked it better than the original? I can't say I agree, but I can understand why one might. Basically Sicario : Sicario 2 :: Young Guns 1 : Young Guns 2. Where the first one was more languid with its pacing, creating some great moments of tension, and had more of an artful aesthetic, this one is more straightforward with its story, and has some elements that felt contrived and telegraphed. But it's every bit as dark and brutal as the first one, and it still doesn't spoon feed the viewer everything, even if a couple elements were telegraphed in pretty early on.

Some more spoilery thoughts/questions:

Spoiler: show
1. I struggled to latch on to the relationship between Benicio and Isabella. I get that he's still in mourning for his daughter, and can see why she might somehow remind him of her, but his desire to protect her seemed to come out of nowhere; as did his plan to get her north to her mother (was this even true, or was it just something he said once he had a gun to his head?)

2. The final scene with Benicio and the young gangster felt forced. You want to hire a hitman? How about you call any of the guys you've been hanging out with for the last few years instead of tracking down the kid who tried to kill you.

3. I got up to pee right after Benicio rescues/kidnaps Isabella from the guy who was trying to force her into his truck. Benicio shoots the guy, convinces the girl he means her no harm, they get in the truck...And then when I came back from the bathroom, they were trekking across the dessert and come upon the deaf farmer. What did I miss?

4. I loved where the relationship between Brolin and Benicio wound up. You can tell that something broke in Brolin when he had to leave his friend in the hands of his killers, and his buddy's comment of "glad it didn't have to be us" seemed to make him even more angry; meanwhile Benicio has a hole in his head and no more allies. It's a great setup for a third one, assuming the plot tackles this new divide between them.


:thumbsup: Third one should be awesome.

Upon further reflection i can definitively and succinctly say that i loved this. It is its own movie. I already want to watch it again to see if some of the issues i had go down easier the second time around, because i'm not really bothered by them anymore.

I felt like I’ve seen this movie before i.e. Logan, Man on Fire. It’s a joy to watch BdT and Brolin be these characters, but it seemed to lack the tension and intriguing action of the first film
