Movie Title: John Wick Chapter 2 Grade: A- Rating: R, 122 minutes of non-stop action and violence In a Nutshell: Revenge. Huge body count. Cool guns. Lots of violence. Welcome back John Wick. If you liked the first one, you'll love the sequel. You can tell it's directed by a stuntman, Chad Stahelski. It's a master class in hand-to-hand combat. A movie critic from the Quad City Times described the stylish, slick film as a “ballet of violence.” Well said. Uplifting theme: Persistence, tenacity Honor Things I liked: Cool intro scene with motorcycle image on the façade of the building. Rome! I absolutely love Italy. At times, there are subtitles, but I have to say they’re very stylish ones. Common does a great job as Cassian. The legend says John Wick killed 3 guys with a pencil. You finally get to see that skill play out in this sequel. The film actually ties up loose ends from the first movie. Fans will be happy to see a cliff-hanger that assures another installment in this franchise. The trailer doesn’t reveal much of the story. Thank you. Keanu Reeves does 95% of his own stuntman. Check out some of the many impressive Keanu Reeves videos on YouTube that show how he trained for both John Wick movies. You get to learn more about the criminal “organization” and its underground world. I thought the telephone operators with all the tattoos were hilarious. Things I didn’t like: Some of the scenes take place in dark catacombs, so this film will be hard to watch on a computer screen when it comes out on DVD. It’s ridiculous how many fight scenes there are in large crowds, yet the people around hardly bat an eye, let alone move out of the way or scream. John Wick has an excellent aim, yet so many of the other professionals keep missing their shots. Interesting lines: “I’m not that guy anymore.” – John (Keanu Reeves) “You’re always that guy, John.” – Santino D’Antonio “Rules.” – John “Rules. Without them, we’re like the animals.” – Winston (Ian McShane) “So, you have a choice. You want a war or do you just want to give me a gun?” – John “Remember, you owe me.” – Bowery King “You don’t want me owing you.” - John Funny lines: “Does he have a name, Sir?” – Charon (Lance Reddick) asking about John's dog. “No.” – John “Never one to waste words.” – Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) “I’d like a tasting.” – John (as he tests out various weapons) “And the lining?” – tailor “Tactical.” – John “I’ll make it quick.” – Cassian “I’d appreciate that. I’ll try to do the same.” – John “7 million! It’s Christmas! We going to Applebee’s after this.” – Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) It was fun seeing Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne in some scenes together again after the Matrix Tips for parents: This is very, very violent, as expected. Lots of blood and head shots. F-bombs and other profanity. @trinaboiceFebruary 28th, 2017 · Details
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.Click here to read the full review
A little bit of a spoiler alert here: this time the dog does not die. Other than that, “John Wick Chapter 2” is pretty much what you saw in the first “John Wick.” Once again, this is a movie about a good guy who happens to be an assassin, going after the bad guy assassins, in an assassin demimondaine with cool details but mostly a lot of assassining. Director Chad Stahelski, a martial arts instructor turned stuntman in films like “The Crow” and “The Matrix” makes these films from a stuntman perspective. The intricately choreographed stunts are shot like a Fred Astaire dance number. That means the camera sits relatively still and lets the action tell the story rather than tricking it all up with quick cuts and fancy angles. And the stunt settings are imaginative, including ancient Roman catacombs and an art installation that is like a super-sized funhouse mirror display.Click here to read the full review
