“John Wick: Chapter 2” gives fans more of what they liked from the first film. More action, more thrills, and more gore. With Reeves and his new pup back from the first film, it is set to be an awesome experience. With the first films antagonists dead, this one introduces new threats, who are arguably more evil. Wick (Keanu Reeves) is not safe from the Continental (the assassin organization), as the plot of this film revolves around the fact that Wick has a fourteen million dollar bounty on his head. Just about anybody can be a threat, which spices up the films plot and suspense. [SPOILER] Santino (the main villain, played by Riccardo Scamarcio) annihilates Wick’s home, leaving him with nothing. This makes Wick more vulnerable than ever [SPOILERS END]. He is on the run and very vulnerable. The intriguing action and gunplay makes a return in this film, and is considerably more over the top. Not only is there more shootout scenes, but there is a great emphasis on the information on the firearms, such as the Kimber 1911 and Benelli M4. The fight scenes are also more creative, as there exists more knife fights, and even a pencil fight. With all of the killing, there is a lot more gore. This film is considerably more bloody than the original. It’s just as gory as “Rambo” (2008). For instance, with any headshot, they’re is a considerable amount of blood. Many of people are stabbed and brutalized. Reeves goes all out in this film, just like in the original. He is clearly having the time of his life playing the character. He IS John Wick. While the antagonists are entertaining to watch, it isn’t very satisfying to see them get picked off one by one like it was in the first film. They’re just there to get dropped by Wick, which is okay because it’s fun to watch. Overall, John Wick 2 is a very solid sequel. With the action bumped up and Wick dropping bodies, it’s a fun film. Overall, it’s a 7.5/10.
