‘Sicario’ sequel delivers action while fumbling on border politics

A sequel that stands on its own, “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” works best as a taut, crisp action vehicle, and worst as a muddled look at geopolitics, the U.S.-Mexican border and terrorism. Given the prevailing political climate, the latter feels especially unhelpful and ill timed, putting the movie on firmer footing when it focuses on a hitman moved to protect the daughter of the cartel leader he otherwise despises.
