John Wick Chapter 2 (Review)

  • Went to go see John Wick "Chapter 2" with my father, and omg is all I can say. For of all this movie does so many things right. From the action using real life stunts to Keanu really showing his training in both hand to hand and gunplay. John Wick scored high in my book. The new story goes very well with the life of an ex-assassin. Let me tell you a little about John Wick 2.

    Spoilers Ahead

     

    Shortly (about four days) after the events of John Wick, former assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) tracks down his stolen 1969 Boss 429 Mustang at a chop shop owned by Abram Tarasov (Peter Stormare), brother of Viggo and uncle of Iosef, the main antagonists from the first movie. John dispatches Tarasov's men in a violent fight that heavily damages his car. He then spares Tarasov under the auspices of "peace" and returns home.

    After Aurelio (John Leguizamo) takes John's Mustang for repairs, John is visited by Italian crime lord Santino D'Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio). It is revealed that, years ago, to complete his "impossible task" - allowing him to retire and marry Helen - John asked D'Antonio for help. As a form of contract, D'Antonio swore John to a "Marker", an unbreakable promise symbolized by a "blood oath" medallion. D'Antonio presents the medallion to demand services from John, but John refuses, claiming that he is "retired". In retaliation, D'Antonio destroys John's house with a grenade launcher.

    Winston (Ian McShane), the owner of the Continental hotel in New York City, reminds John that if he rejects the Marker, he will be violating one of the two unbreakable rules of the underworld: no killing on Continental ground and Markers must be honored. John accepts his duty and meets with D'Antonio, who tasks him with assassinating his sister Gianna D'Antonio (Claudia Gerini) so he can claim her seat on the "High Table," a council of high-level crime lords. D'Antonio sends Ares (Ruby Rose), his personal bodyguard, to follow and keep an eye on John.

     

    Rated 9 - 10

     

    All I can say is that this movie met my expectations. And put it like this, John Wick Chapter 3 is coming. And coming from this UGeek, John Wick Chapter 2 is a must see. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
