i'm honestly flummoxed by whether or not this is a verhoeven-esque commentary on fox news fearmongering, the basis of said fearmongering, or just the laziest ripped-from-the-headlines cash-in sequel ever.

I hate these types of movies because they give into the ideal of Muslims on the boarder blowing themselves up and giving people the belief of it being true. I agree with the other aspect of the movie when it comes to drugs and people trying to cross the boarder. I really feel this gives people on ideals of hated and buying into currant situation of what is being said in our government now. It has action and showing a dirty side of Americans and Central Americans if people really want to believe just look at what money is given by the US in central America people should research truth, maybe I am taking this more as reality but when have a dictator in power it just gives the believers a reason.

This was an excellent sequel to a brilliant first film. The score in this is dynamite and chilling!

I see almost a Godfather like quality to the Sicario series especially at the end of this second installment. Oh, there will be a third Sicario which will take the characters further. Enjoyed the action in this one.

As action films go this one was okay. As a sequel it is a middle episode so the expectation of more character build up was surprisingly lacking. The plot was not as thrilling as the first movie and instead relies on themes of betrayal and loyalty. It does emphasize the dirty aspect of counterintelligence.

If you want to be entertained (mindlessly), this movie works. But if you apply a tiny amount of critical thinking, the plot does not make a whole lot of sense.

It is an unnecessary sequel, and most of the plot / time is spent setting up the next (3rd) Sicario movie.

Liked this way better than the original, felt more solid with me. I was totally hooked and am now going to go to bed late as I actually watched it right to the end (rather than waiting tomorrow to finish it). This movie really went places I didn't expect it to go and didn't feel cheesy or cliched as an action movie. The child actress, Isabela Moner, was amazing and raised the stakes of to the nth degree. Benicio Del Toro also put in a great performance.

Brolin and del Toro reprised their roles as in the 2015 Sicario as CIA agents working to incite a drug cartel war. Their operation was somehow compromised and to prevent a diplomatic crisis, they must cut their losses and sanitize what had been done, a big and dangerous mess. Not as engaging and fresh but captured the same violence and grit as the original.

Most interesting scene: at 14:20 mark that showed housing on both side of the double border fence, a dirt drive road in between, at the US-Mexico border at McAllen, Texas.

Follow up to "Sicario" this sequel merits a higher rating if only for the fact that the character played by Emily Blunt has been dropped. One can easily image how this line of "Sicario" movies will be viewed with delight by Donald Trump, otherwise lots of killing etc., etc.

***SPOILER ALERT***

Clean the scene. When I say clean, gentlemen, I mean spotless. Your operative included.
-Do you know...how hard he was to make ... (another operative)
I could throw a stick across the river and hit 50 grieving fathers. Make another one.
-Can't do that.
Well, look who doesn't have the stomach for it now.
-Oh, who are you to question me after all the shXt that I've eaten for you?

***THE MEXICAN CONNECTION***
So, if their passports were fake, they'd fly straight to Kansas City instead of going to Mexico and hiring coyotes to truck them a hundred miles to the desert, right? So, the big question is: How'd they get to Mexico? 'Cause they sure as hell didn't fly.
