Running Time: 122 minutes

Sicario is a tough act to follow. The 2015 production was one of my favorite films of that  year, detailing an ugly, gray, unflinching and unflattering portrait of US operatives going above and beyond the law in order to cause chaos among Mexican drug cartels.

While the movie probably still cost a pretty penny, this feels like a much smaller, darker follow-up. It deserves some credit for trying to deal with a few moral and ethical questions about the creation of dinosaurs and provides some popcorn thrills along the way, but doesn’t quite match its predecessor and often feels more like a set-up for the next chapter in the series than its own stand-alone entry.

Four years after the events of the previous film, the island theme park...
