I saw it this morning, on the strength of the first film (The writer, and a number of the actors having returned). There’s a bit of bushwa out there about it being disappointing, compared to the original. Also, debate as to whether the story is a sequel, a prequel, or an opener to further films - who cares…
I enjoyed it, never had a WTF moment, or any fidgety-inducing segments. The acting, dialogue, soundtrack, and action carries the story right along. Some of this ground’s been covered before (the first ‘Sicario’, ‘Clear and Present Danger’, to name a couple), but these are real world possibilities, if not occurrences.
Basically, I liked it…a LOT.
Which brings me to the subject of how this/these film/films would slot right into the hobby. We talk a lot about re-purposed components, but I’d personally be fine with that, if an outfit like DAM launched some figures based on ‘Sicario’ characters.
A lot of previously released figures would suffice for the CAG guys from the first film, but I’d really enjoy the gunfighters from the task force, which would salve the pain of the poor coverage of the GRS guys from ‘13 Hours’.
Just a coinkydink, but there’s images of a boxed disc set for ‘Soldado’. They caught my eye during an Google search, and for a second, I wondered if DAMToys had already jumped on the idea.
A guy can dream…
