At 1:43, 2:12, and 2:42 it is established the Border Patrol helicopters have FLIR (Forward Looking Infra-Red) sensors. Based on this, Miguel's gambit of hiding his pack of illegals under the trees at 1:17:39 should not have worked. All of them would have stood out as bright heat sources under the trees. See more »
Where the original Sicario was carried by the suspence created by the contrasting naive FBI-agent Macy (Emily Blunt), the cynical CIA-agent Matt (Josh Brolin) and the vengeful
Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) as ruthless sicario turned against the drug carlets operating along the US-Mexico border, the sequal lacks this tension and becomes an analogue and rather predictable story. Decent acting performances, and attempts to recreate the original dark athmosphere cannot save the weak plot, where several interesting issues launched at the start are not followed through. This makes for a rather unfulfilling experience, despite hints of another sequal.
