You'll be going deeper into the dark side of a ruthless game.
Drugs. Human trafficking. Kidnapping. You name it, you'll see it here. And the true dark side of this film is that these scenarios are all crimes that are all too real.
In the film Soldado: The Soldier (the sequel of 2015 Dennis Villeneuve's Sicario), the drug war on the United States – Mexico border has been going out of hand as the cartels have been trafficking terrorists across the borders.
The United States government's solution? Let the cartels fight each other.
In this film, you have a federal agent, an assassin, and a kingpin daughter tangled into a messy, violent, and chaotic chain of events that will leave you at the edge of your seat.
We follow agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) as he works with mysterious attorney-turned-assassin Alejandro Gillick (Benicio del Toro) to incite a war between rival cartels by kidnapping the kingpin's daughter Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner).
What dirty tricks are hidden under the seat of power?
In the film Soldado: The Soldier, you wouldn't dare to be the enemy of the state, and wouldn't want to wish it for the worst of your enemies.
Don't try to mess with the United States government because they can (and will) hunt you down. So think hard, and think twice, before you even think of any attempt to out-gun, out-smart, and demolish them.
In the film, we'll discover that agent Matt is a believer that the end justifies the means. So when the Mexican government busted the mission, Matt ordered to kill Isabela. But Alejandro refused, turning him rogue, and is now being hunted by the same people who included him on this dirty mission – CIA agent Matt and the government.
Action in this film also comes in forms of bombs and guns. Artillery equipment become the tools of the trade for all sides of this bloody mission, and expert marksmen are to be feared. Prepare your senses for messy and explosive scenes — bullets will be fired, some bullets will be dodged, but some will surely be fatal.
A rogue undercover operative and a government desperate to maintain peace is the perfect recipe for a non-stop action!
Just imagine stepping inside the cinema to experience the type of fear and terror that isn't supernatural nor superhuman at all. No ghosts, no chilling horror sound effects, no caped heroes swooping in to save the day. All you'll have is pure, unadulterated fear of something that could actually happen in real life–sooner, later, or maybe right now.
Also joining the action at the border are Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Murder on the Orient Express), and Catherine Keener (The 40-year-old Virgin).
