John Wick 2

He just has one bad day after another.

After an action filled start where John Wick (Keanu Reeves) finishes off that nasty business from the first movie, he almost makes it back into retirement just before another incident ropes him back into work, and what beautifully choreographed violence that work is.

It's amazing to watch.

I quite liked that Mr. Wick only has an 80% accuracy rating and gets hit repeatedly, and while he is wearing a layer of plot armor (especially against head shots), its significantly less since they explain a bit with the load out portion of the film - one of my favorite parts as it not only shows their love of weapons but also expands on the "assassin's world".

Despite a predictable plot, the trail of blood and guts and violence galore makes for a fantastic spectacle. Is it better than the first movie? Not particularly, but it's just as good so three and a half shotgun shells out of five. I highly recommend it if you are an action fan, or if you enjoyed the original. Would I watch it again? Definitely yes! I might even go get the DVD. :)


  1. So you absolutely nailed this review! And almost as interesting as the movie are the YT vids of ol Keanu training. There apparently is a whole industry surrounding training actors to shoot accurately/strategically and the vids are really fantastic showing him on the range with live rounds and all. Worth a look.

    1. Thank you Unknown - I quite enjoyed the clips of Keanu's gun training! Thank you letting me know about it! :)
