    For better or for worse the Michael Bay-ness goes through the roof in this sequel to the 1995 original. The action sequences are plentiful and while they're not shot and edited nearly as well as it should be, they're all mostly and as watchable. The movie's biggest weakness for me is the runtime. If there was a half hour or so trimmed I may have upped this score to three stars. Smith and Lawrence continue to have great chemistry though…

    This is a very fast paced film that totally embraces it's silliness and randomness and is arguably a slight improvement of it's predecessor.

    I did not Keanu Reeves as an actor until I saw this movie. My perception of him did a complete 180 after seeing this movie. With amazing action and superb world building, "John Wick" is the start of what became one if the greatest action franchises of the 21st century.

    The chemistry between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is the one thing this otherwise forgettable 90s buddy cop action movie has going for it. While the duo certainly make the film watchable, the movie is surprisingly action-lite especially in the first half. And whenever there is action there are far too many cuts to enjoy it properly.
