A Few Thoughts On – John Wick: Chapter 2

Back when the first John Wick came out I heard it was a decent action movie so I watched it on a whim, and it turned out to be one of the best shot action movie I had seen in a long time.

2-6

I loved that the villains of the thing were scared of Wick, and he only came after them after someone who didn’t know who he was pissed him off. Anyway Chapter 2 picks up where the first movie leaves off, with john collecting his car from the Russians. This makes up the opening action scene of the film, and it puts you right back into the mood for the well executed action scenes that made the first movie so great.

The plot lines of these movies are fairly simple, but it is the world that they are set in make them feel interesting. The back story of Wick himself and the people that surround has so much there that it could be a film or a TV of its own.

Chapter 2 continues Wick’s story and why he is “still in the game” and with a simple set up it makes for a movie of super well shot action scenes with guns and fists and interesting set pieces.

I can’t really say anything about specifics as the spoilers would come from the film’s action moments (E.g wasn’t it awesome when ________ happened) which should be seen rather than heard. So short one for this, John Wick Chapter 2 is very good I would recommend.

Well, till next time….
