    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★½

    Being on a bit of a Sicario high I was very excited to see the sequel to one of the best films of 2015. But with the absence of Denis Villenuve’s direction and Roger Deakins’ stunning cinematography and Emily Blunt I was a bit sceptical going into it.

    It seems so clear cut in the first two acts of the film and in that last act it completely flips it over you’re head and leaves…
