‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ Review: A Darker, Pointless Echo of the Original

2015’s Sicario was a bone-rattling, nightmarish look at a new American frontier. Although it was ostensibly about crime between the U.S. and Mexico border, the film looked at the limits of the law and the lengths people will go to achieve their objective.
