Plot summary

What is Sicario: Day of the Soldado movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" movie plot summary.

A suicide bombing in a Kansas City grocery store kills fifteen people. In response, the United States government orders CIA officer Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) to apply extreme measures to combat Mexican drug cartels who are suspected of having smuggled the terrorists across the U.S.-Mexico border. Graver and the Department of Defense (Matthew Modine) decide the best option is to instigate a war between the major cartels, and Graver recruits operative Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro) for the mission. Graver also meets with PMC official Andy Wheeldon (Shea Whigham) to secure mercenaries, helicopters, and military-grade communication equipment in order for the U.S. to maintain plausible deniability while combating the Mexican cartels.
Gillick assassinates a high-profile lawyer of the Matamoros cartel in Mexico City while Graver and his team capture Isabel Reyes (Isabela Merced), the daughter of the kingpin of the Matamoros rival, Carlos Reyes (who ordered the killing of Gillick's family in the events leading up to the previous film), in a false flag operation.
Graver, Gillick and their team take Isabel to a safe house in Texas. They stage a DEA raid and pretend to rescue her, making her believe that she had been captured by the Matamoros cartel. They take her to an American military base while the team organizes her return to Mexico. They plan to leave her behind in a Mexican Federal Police depot located inside territory controlled by her father's rivals to further escalate the inter-cartel conflict. However, after they cross into Mexico, the corrupt police escort turns against them and attacks the American armoured vehicles. In the firefight that ensues, Graver and his team kill 25 Mexican policemen to escape the ambush.
