John Wick Chapter 2 Review

  • Gungfu-tastic!
4.5

Summary

Watching John Wick and his Gun-fu was like watching an artist paint on his canvas. Be warned this isn’t to be watched by the weak of heart. There will be blood. Lots of it.

John Wick Chapter 2 feels like a Call of Duty hardcore death match without the kill streaks. The only thing missing was a health bar on the top of the screen. Yet this time around we see a John that isn’t invincible. Although those jackets seem to have +50 Armour hit points. Don’t worry this review is a spoiler free zone!

Watching John Wick and his Gun-fu was like watching an artist paint on his canvas. Be warned this isn’t to be watched by the weak of heart. There will be blood. Lots of it.

The movie picks up right from the first one. Where we have an ex assassin who was retired. We all know if you are good at what you do they will always drag you out of retirement. This time for John he was kicking and screaming. You can feel his pain putting back on the suit to do the job. A job that he swore he would never do. Wick’s bounty lives in Rome, the perfect setting for a Bond-style montage of Reeves trying on tailored suits and meeting a “sommelier” who deals firearms instead of fine wines, and a violent chase through the catacombs. The Gun-fu action was spot on! I couldn’t help but keep watching even if the body count begins to become difficult to stomach as the film races towards its bloody climax.

The theme “Never stab the devil in the back” carried throughout the movie. John Wick is the boogyman. His name carries an ominous presence. Wherever he goes bodies are sure to follow. So why would anyone want to piss off John Wick. Although it makes no sense it goes to show not even the boogyman is safe… This movie was just awesome. From beginning to the end I wanted more. Hopefully with the success of chapter 2 we can expect a chapter 3.
