Sicario: Day of the Soldado
What do you mean, “They’re all out of hair gel”?
In this sequel, we once again look at the drug war close to Mexico. In the drug war, there are no rules – and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, a federal agent calls on the mysterious Alejandro, whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to escalate the war in nefarious ways. Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter to inflame the conflict – but when the girl is seen as collateral damage, her fate will come between the two men as they question everything they are fighting for.

|Comments||The action crime thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado explores themes of terrorism, drug cartels, conspiracy, war on drug cartels, people smuggling, lies, deceit, kidnapping, underhand law enforcement tactics, revenge, illegal border crossings, crime and gangsterism. These themes are complex and mature and may be confusing to cognitively immature viewers. The maturity of negative themes dealing with terrorism, drug cartels and people smuggling, may also prematurely expose young children to adult experiences. Additionally, the themes are presented with a strong sense of threat and menace, due to the presence of ruthless criminals, having no regard for human life, frequently resorting to cold-blooded killing. This sense of threat and menace is underscored by cinematographic techniques such as low frequency suspenseful sound throughout the film, with the impact increased by enhanced audio-visual effects of the cinematic format, resulting in the sound physically being felt in the viewer’s body. The cinematic format also increases the impact violence which are of a strong impact, and occasionally quite gory and disturbing (due to enhanced visuals). Themes and their presentation is therefore likely to be disturbing, upsetting and distressing for emotionally and cognitively immature viewers, and may even result in psychological harm. Additionally, negative messages and themes revolving around terrorism, deceit, violence as a method to achieve your goals, law enforcement officers engaging in criminal and unethical conduct, may also be morally misleading, and the risk for moral harm for children under the age of 16 years, who have not yet formed independent moral values, is even more pronounced due to the absence of any strong positive pro-social messages.|
