“After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.”
When a movie like John Wick came out, it caught everyone off guard, and became this cult hit that was so good it couldn’t help but blow up. Then when the inevitable sequel comes out, all are on it, the bar is raised and all the pressure is on. John Wick chapter 2 basically takes that bar, and does some pull ups with it. This movie took everything about the first movie that we loved, the mythology, the characters, the action, and said “how can we make this bigger and deeper?” And they really do. Much is added to the myth and lure of this universe, we get new locations and set pieces, and we get ohhh so many head shots. If you liked the first John Wick, there is no way you don’t like the sequel. The movie even does a great job setting up a tense and exciting third movie, but it doesn’t do so at the expense of this movie. All in all, John Wick 2 is a rip roaring run through the deep bloody streets of the assassin underbelly filled with gold coins, blood oaths, and a sprinkling of knives to the heart.
