The indestructible killer for hire calls a truce with the Russian mob, but upon hearing that he has returned to "the business" an Italian mobster calls in an old debt leaving John at odds with the entire assassin fraternity.
The original John Wick was a decent if unspectacular action thriller based upon a comic book, and this sequel continues the story from the point where the original left off. Once again a laconic Keanu grudgingly deals out death and destruction wherever he goes, with a bodycount even more extravagant than before. It once again is heavily influenced by Asian action cinema - notably John Woo's Hardboiled and A Better Tomorrow 2 - and the finale is set within a hall of mirrors like a postmodern homage to Enter The Dragon. Laurence Fishburne adds his weighty presence …

"I'm not that guy anymore. You are always that guy, John."
Once again I couldn't withhold myself from watching a sequel, although I knew it probably would be a watered down version of the original. And yet I could not resist it. And after re-reading my review of the first movie "John Wick", I can only conclude that I was right about that. The final sentence I wrote was as follows: "I admire Reeves that he's still capable to portray a character as Wick at his age of 50 and bring this kind of personage to a higher level, but I'm afraid that this sequel will be a weak carbon copy from the original." . Unfortunately, I was right.
The only difference with the first movie is the amount of fake blood they've used. Again, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) acts with extreme effrontery and he leaves …

When John Wick came out, it was a pleasant surprise. Chad Stahelski - who once worked as Keanu Reeves' stunt double in The Matrix films, got behind the camera and turned Reeves into a stoic badass - a martial arts and gun master who wanted to be left alone but was called back in to action when his car is stolen and his dog is killed. Thus began a one-man revenge tale and woe be to those who stood in John Wick's way. And action, oh my, if you like action Wick delivered on all cylinders.
John Wick: Chapter Two picks up exactly where the first film ended - with Wick cleaning up the last of the Russians in order to retrieve his car and, in typical Wick fashion, using said car as a weapon while doing so. He settles the score with Abram (Peter Stormare - staring in incredulous disbelief for …

"You don't f**k with the devil then act surprised when he turns up."
John Wick: Chapter 2 is one of best and most exciting action movie I've seen in awhile. It accomplished everything it needed to do and much more. I mean, any action movie that starts with a Buster Keaton homage is always a sign of something great. A squeal that's bigger, more violent, and plenty more head shots.
Not as emotionally engaging as the first movie and it doesn't need to. In all honestly, I liked this more than it's predecessor. It expands the universe of assassins and making tension a lot higher for John. While it dose come off a bit ridiculous, but it's self aware of what it is and it's not trying to be very serious.
This movie is a prime example of how action should be done. Outstanding gunfights …
