John Wick 2 Brief Thoughts


The shootout scenes in the second chapter of John Wick, aka John Wick 2, border on the absurd, even by Hollywood standards.

The way Keanu Reeves kills those after him in the Roman catacombs and elsewhere makes a Steven Seagal action and survival sequence seem believable. Of course Wick is wearing an especially ordered outfit made specifically for a gun fight but it is not only his survival but the ease at which he gets rid of all D’Antonio’s – played by Italian actor Riccardo Scamarcio – men that makes the movie very unreal.

However, John Wick 2, like its predecessor, is an entertaining movie and worth watching. An added bonus for the movie series is the role his dogs plays in the saga.

This second chapter was a bigger success than the first at the box office, part 3 is in the works and expected in May 2019.
