I enjoyed the first one, so when my streaming provider announced the release of the second one, I was very excited. 
The movie has a brilliant start that caught my attention right from the get go. It had a solid foundation and potential to be a fantastic movie, but unfortunately they blew it in the end. At least that is my opinion.

I am very fond of Benicio Del Toro, and he is so cool in this part as Alejandro. 
Josh Brolin is also perfect for his role as Matt Graver. 

The action, stunts and gun fights are all very good. There is mess up in the  time line near the end, where 15 mins. suddenly turns night  into bright daylight. That really annoyed me. There is also something wrong with the time/distance ratio when traveling by car or foot. Slip-ups like these sticks out and signals lack of credibility, which destroys the illusion of the movie for me. 

If you enjoyed the first movie, you have to see this one as well. If you are into special ops action movies, this is highly recommendable. I am for sure hoping for a third installment in the series.
