John Wick: Chapter 2

What’s not to love about the comic-book, choreographed to near balletic perfection violence of John Wick? I don’t think this film sought to raise the stakes from its predecessor: in my mind it was just more of the same, and that’s a simplistic story basis ornamented with scene after scene of punishing video-game-like gunfight scenes. This film delves more into the structure, hierarchy, ritual and operation of the assassins’ community referenced in the first film, and the only thing I was disappointed by was to learn John Wick 3 won’t be out til May 2019.👍👍
