John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick: Chapter 2 ★★★★½

Exciting, action packed, and violent, John Wick: Chapter 2 is one of the best action movies of this decade.

Keanu Reeves is perfect as the title character, in yet another role he was born to play. His commitment to the stuntwork at the age of 50 is incredible, and his intimidating stance makes him a believable force to be reckoned with.

The action set pieces are incredibly well choreographed, and each scene offers something new. Kicking off with a thrilling car chase and ensuing fist fight, John Wick never slows down, with an outdoor club shootout similar to the first but possibly better, and an homage to Bruce Lee in a trippy final fight in a mirror hall.

The world building of he assassin underworld is quite interesting, and adds more to the series. The original score is as kinetic as the movie's pace. And the script is surprisingly solid.

The only scenes that stick out as problems are scenes that show just how many assasins there are in New York. It gets almost too absurd at a point.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is one of the most entertaining movies to come out in years, and further solidifies Keanu Reeves as a bonafide action star and John Wick as an action hero icon.
