Critic Reviews for John Wick: Chapter 2
John Wick laid out the basics of its codified criminal community, but Chapter 2 builds from them an intricate world that has the claustrophobic quality of any professional industry.
Compared to the massive scales of CGI'd blockbusters, John Wick and its sequel offer more cohesive doses of ferocious thrills.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is the apotheosis of a 3 a.m. cable wallow. And loving it doesn't corrupt you.
Despite the long takes and the wide angles, the traumatic violence looks like expertly realized C.G.I., combined with elaborately sampled stunt work.
This is "more of the same" but, at least in this case, that's a good thing.
Audience Reviews for John Wick: Chapter 2
An exhilarating sequel that does justice to the first movie by expanding this fascinating world of criminals and assassins to another level with its rules, scope and reach, while at the same time offering us more amazing fight scenes, deaths (lots of them) and set pieces.
Absurd, action packed thrill ride. Keanu did a great job once again. Action sequences make up for the lack of story.
After the surprise hit with a very fresh take on action films a sequel was probably inevitable. The film actually does a decent job of faking a story, but in the end (the beginning too) it mostly wants to show you some more of Reeves stoically and effectively shooting dozens of people at point blank. That's still very well done, now in different and more unusual locations, like the Roman catacombs. But in the end you can't help but feel you've seen this before, both earlier in the film and of course in chapter one. That's still entertaining enough but for part three they'll really have to think of something new.
