    See You Yesterday

    ★★★

    They did time travel better than the Avengers... 🤪

    An enjoyable, ambitious debut.

    "Si vis pacem, para bellum."

    FUUUUUCK!!! They really went all out with this one! Resuming a few hours from the conclusion of its predecessor, it dives right back into what we've become accustomed to: frantic yet structured violence. Then taken on an exhaustingly fun journey increasing the ante even fuckin more, once again globetrotting and expanding the already expansive World of Wick. In doing so, we're provided further insight into who John Wick is, albeit minimal; as John’s future becomes…
