After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

Remember how the original John Wick snuck up and wowed us in 2014? Now he’s back and better than ever. John Wick: Chapter 2 is the real deal in action-movie fireworks – it’s pure cinema, an adrenaline rocket of image and sound that explodes on contact.

 

Wait, say the skeptics, isn’t it just Keanu Reeves, as the titular character, shooting, stabbing, kicking and punching bad guys when he’s not using assorted vehicles to go Mad Max on his enemies? Well, yes, it’s that too. And yet this sequel – with the star at his absolute best as the so-called Boogeyman who once killed three men with a pencil – crashes beyond the borders of typical B-movie nihilism.
