John Wick: Chapter 2 ★★★★

It's undoubtedly bigger and better than the original; it has a more cohesive, and convincing plot, more compelling story, and more doses of thrills.

This sequel also expands this ravishing universe of criminals and assassins to another level with more rules, bigger scope and reach. It also recaptures the original's magic, and emphasizes on the titular character's charm as well as Keanu Reeves's charm.

However, it's also undoubtedly less entertaining than the original; it has "more of the same" choreographed action set-pieces, which , of course, don't feel as fresh as they were in its predecessor. But it still nothing short of pure fun.
Another issue I've with this movie is that the denouement is a bit messy, and longer than it should be.

All in all, John Wick: Chapter 2 is one hell of a ride that with its exceptional pulp flick make almost every other pulp action flick seems nothing more than a cash grab!
