Trivia

The film was criticized by some for its perceived negative stereotypes of Mexicans and Muslims. See more »

Goofs

The film depicts the US-Mexico border near McAllen, Texas and Reynosa, Tamaulipas (Mexico) as a barbed wire fence separating both countries. In reality, the border between the US and Mexico is an internationally known body of water: the Rio Grande (Rio Bravo for Mexicans). The river itself is hundreds of feet wide, and at no point, for hundreds of miles near McAllen, Texas, are there any fences or walls to outline the border between both countries. See more »

It's a worthy follow-up
12 August 2018 | by nothimmeSee all my reviews

This is one of those action movies that it only job is to give you as real as possible experience with its beautiful cinematography. It doesn't feel as real as ''Children of Men'' and it probably won't get a Oscar but it serves its job. The movie may not be as masterful as Villeneuve's original, but it achieves to keep you on the screen. There are really good heart-pumping scenes that beautifully blended with the score in its convoluted plot. Just like in the first movie, the story gets darker and darker. It reflects real-life situations, that's why it's so dreary and compelling. All the events is a buildup to our main story. It all ties together perfectly in the end. And even though key cast member Emily Blunt no longer here, the movie stands alone as a powerful modern-day Western, thanks to the Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, and Taylor Sheridan who also penned the screenplay of the first movie.

I'll definitely watch this again.
