Yes it’s once again time for that hyper-violent uber chorographed fight scene where the mundane become deadly weapons. John Wick is back and this time no one is safe. Wait a minute wasn’t that the last movie?
Yes John Wick is back and even though he wants to quit someone has his marker and he can’t get out of it. And to prove the point Wick’s house is burned down. But don’t worry the dog is unharmed.
A quick trip to Rome, (John you’re not here for the Pope are you?), and then he is dressed to kill, literally, and goes to find the target. But it is never the case that once the job is done it’s over as the one that ordered the hit turns on John to “clean up loose ends”.
I can honestly say that I have never seen so many head shots in my entire life of watching movies.
Now if hyper-violent uber chorographed movies are your schtick and you can park your intelligence on some back shelf then by all means rent this movie. Just don’t bring any children.
John Wick Chapter 2 gets three stars.
