    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★

    Plenty of action and plenty of dead bodies. It gets a little exhausting, to be honest. And it looked like they had a cool thing in The Continental (the hitman cartel) but John burned his bridges and I'm not sure where they go next. He kept getting hit by cars and popping right up. Must be nice.

    Run All Night

    ★★★★

    Solid exciting take on the hit man trying to come in from the cold (sort of). No real surprises but plenty of action and heartfelt performances.

    A Very Long Engagement

    ★★★½

    A Very Long Engagement is the 2004 film from the Amelie crew, including director Jean-Pierre Jeunet and actress Audrey Tautou. It concerns a young fiance's search for answers after word gets back her lover has been lost at the front. It elegantly captures the ugliness of World War One's trench warfare, yet is curiously uninvolving after the mystery is solved.

    As the movie opens, we see four men being marched along a trench, ankle deep in water as the rain…

    RED

    ★★★½

    Just finished watching the last 2/3rds of "Red", the kinetic, over-the-top, over-the-hill gang action movie, featuring Bruce Willis, John Malkovic, Helen Mirren and Mary-Louise Parker. It was pretty fun although quite ridiculous. It sure seems like they were having a blast making the movie. A couple cool movie tricks (like when Malkovic shot the RPG coming at him, causing a back blast that took out the shooter) raised this up a little. Enjoyable waste of time, I guess.
