John Wick: Chapter 2

You working?
28 July 2017

A sequel to the 2014 revenge thriller. This time John Wick repays a debt he owes to a gangster only to have the villain turn on him right after the task is complete.

YES YES YES. It’s so rare that a sequel gives you exactly what you want but John Wick 2 delivers the goods and then some. This is another stylish, inventive, beautiful masterpiece of wall-to-wall action. John takes a few more breathers this time but nowhere ever feels truly safe.

I’ll keep this one short. If you didn’t like the first film then this one won’t be to your liking either. If you have a soul then grab a coke, cook up some popcorn and let this work of art soak into your brain.

How they made this for $40m beats me.
