    Was a sequel really needed?

    ...and "Sicario Saga"; already pushing for a trilogy? :drake

    That's how I feel.

    It's a good trailer, but "Sicario" wasn't the type of movie that demands a sequel.

    Judging from the trailer, it's gonna be more action-y; so I'm wondering if it will convey the same themes and whatnot from the first. I wouldn't care if it doesn't, though.

    Not sure why they chose to call it Sicario 2, when they could have just went with Soldado on its own.

    an unneeded sequel that turns a thriller making a point about corruption and futility into a "badass" action movie which uncritically celebrates the misplaced military force and brutal overreach the original was criticising is p on-point for this time

    the action in sicario was good tho so this might be a decent turn-your-brain-off watch, prob will wait to pirate it tho so i don't gotta support this kinda thing monetarily

    Lol @ people thinking this won't be good.

    I get that so many people love the first film because of the combination of Villeneuve and Deakins.

    BUUUUUUT... Taylor Sheridan is one of the best writers in Hollywood right now. I can't see him attempting to expand on his first film if he didn't feel he had a story mapped out to adequately be represented as a 'saga.'

    Do I anticipate this being as 'seminal' as the first film? No. Because that combination of Villeneuve and Deakins, really does lend that film a sense of singular vision. HOWEVER, Stefano Sollima is no slouch. And, it'll be cool to see Alejandro (Del Toro) cut loose in this one. While I expect this film to be more 'action' driven, I don't expect it to be in the same sense as your generic Hollywood action film.

    Tonally, I expect a lot of the same beast and suspense as the first film; just to a much more visceral effect.

    Nobody is saying it won't be good, Just that it didn't need to be done...

    While I agree with that notion, I Personally don't care how many sequels they tack on as long as it's all enjoyable.

    Trailers can be misleading tho..

    I'd understand why they would advertise the action more to fill in more seats..

    People will remember the last name, so it's like an easy way to identify it. But yes, I do agree with you.

    Also these people behind the job clearly dont know what it is to have those kind of folks in their country or something.

    I liked the first teaser trailer more, as it relied more on mood and imagery. Based on this new one, I don't like the plot. How many hitmen have been thawed by a little girl? The first movie was fresh and bold, but this storyline suggests Hollywood fluff.

    I'll still see it though. I would like to think they have something hidden up their sleeves.

    I agree, hopefully she's the child of a politician being held hostage to motivate a decision favourable to the parties involved. I just can't get behind a guy who so effortlessly murdered an entire family suddenly being like: "Naw, this girl cool tho."

    It looks like the cartel was the only target del Toro just happened to run into the girl during the escape. She's the car in front of the one that explodes.

    Still doesn't change a thing after we got to see him murder a couple kids eating dinner.

    This is a weird heel turn.

    Saw the movie a few hours ago

    Spoiler:
    Like the first one, the film has themes and actor cues that make you think? Like what was up with Isabel's dead eyes at times? Was that meant to imply she was dead inside?

    The B-story this time was about a kid named Miguel who, unlike the crooked cop from the first one, actually survives the film. Hell I thought he killed Alejandro there for a minute. I'm guessing Alejandro saw him worthy of becoming a Sicario at the end because he had the gumption to pull the trigger and the smarts to get out of the truck.

    Matt was as non-chalantly terrifying as usual. We see him display some genuine emotion though after Alejandro is shot so that was cool.


    All in all, better than the first. Felt like a more complete film.
