John Wick: Chapter 2

Keanu Reeves returns to deliver bullet vengeance in this sequel to the glorious 2014 hit. After his previous stint that racked up a tremendously high body count, John Wick catches the attention of a former associate. Bound by a blood oath to help him, Wick heads to Rome for more no-nonsense butt-kicking. Chad Stahelski, co-director of the first, also returns, as do co-stars Ian McShane and Lance Reddick - alongside new entrants Lawrence Fishburne, Common and Ruby Rose.

John Wick: Chapter 2 / Reviews

One could easily argue John Wick didn’t need a Chapter 2. This sleeper hit was a crystalline model of B-movie simplicity, a sleek, pleasingly straightforward, self-contained revenge actioner that blessed Keanu Reeves with a career-jump-starting role. But the film’s tantalising, comic booky world-building elements were hard to ignore, teasing at the potential of exploring the larger universe around its characters.

There’s a quality to the violence here that elevates it above the literal (and reprehensible) nihilism of movies like last year’s “Hardcore Henry,” and instead achieves something more akin to dance.

Chapter 2 will pass a Friday or Saturday night as mindlessly as its predecessor.

Once again, Reeves does not disappoint, fully inhabiting Wick by channeling his rage over life’s injustices into an intensely focused performance.

A brutal, bruising bullet ballet of a sequel that builds upon the promise of the original.
