Although there was no doubt in our minds about it, the initial reactions to 'Sicario: Day Of The Soldado' are extremely positive.

The sequel to the 2015 thriller sees Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin return along with Taylor Sheridan as screenwriter, whilst newcomers Catherine Keener and Matthew Modine are on the scene in various roles. The story picks up directly after 'Sicario' and sees free-wheeling CIA agent Matt Graver (Brolin) reteaming with Alejandro to conduct a border war with the cartels and disrupt the supply chain of drugs into America by any means necessary.

Many of the reactions so far praise Taylor Sheridan's script, adding that it addresses the current issues of the border between Mexico and America, whilst others praised del Toro's performance.

'Sicario: Day Of The Soldado' arrives in Irish cinemas on June 29th.
