    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★

    After seeing John Wick, I wasn't sure how they could recreate the feeling of anticipation of the Wick being lit. Thankfully, the sequel did not disappoint, clearly avoiding the pitfalls of most sequels: fan-servicing, over-explaining, and recycling. With enough nods to the first film, John Wick: Chapter Two takes what made the first film so effective, adding depth, humour, and overall intensity.

    In the world of John Wick, there are two rules:

    ★★★★½

    Green Room is Saulnier's transition from primary colours to secondary colours.

    This time he experiments with a palette of natural and artificial greens, reflecting the true and artificial nature of the characters portrayed in the film. A common thread between this and Blue Ruin is how Saulnier exposes his characters. At first, they seem to have a tough exterior, but traumatic events in the film reveal their true and vulnerable selves.
