John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick: Chapter 2 ★★★½

John Wick. The man. The myth. The legend. He's better with a pencil than he is at retiring, which is good news. Action movies still need him. Chapter Two. Obviously lacks a bit of freshness compared to the first installment, but makes this up by diving deeper into the cool and collected underworld and its unbreakable rules. You won't find any police here and the apathy of those who witness the shoot outs and other types of bloodshed is one of the many bits of dark, dry humor that typifies John Wick's highly stylized world. It's just not just the clashes that look awesome, where they take place is pure eye candy as well. John Wick is so cool, he only shows his talents in super slick looking locations. A bit long and the main villain is far from memorable, but Keanu Reeves is, the mute is a nice addition and you can't go wrong with guys like Peter Stormare, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne and Franco Nero. Hey, Aurelio! You better fix that Mustang for Chapter 3, goddamnit. Most heartbreaking part of the movie.
