Some sequels simply deserve the label "ditto." John Wick: Chapter 2 is one of them.
Just like the first Wick pic, this is a bone-breaking ballet of brutality. It's a movie that's more concerned with how it artfully splashes brains, than how it uses any when telling its story. In fact there's really very little story here at all. Chapter 2 simply picks up where the first flick left off and gives us two hours … more: more car chases, more carnage, more gore.
Some have suggested that this kind of check-your-brain-at-the-door adrenaline bottle rocket is exactly what action movies have always aspired to be. More's the pity.
