Storyline

Bound by an inescapable blood debt to the Italian crime lord, Santino D'Antonio, and with his precious 1969 Mustang still stolen, John Wick--the taciturn and pitiless assassin who thirsts for seclusion--is forced to visit Italy to honour his promise. But, soon, the Bogeyman will find himself dragged into an impossible task in the heart of Rome's secret criminal society, as every killer in the business dreams of cornering the legendary Wick who now has an enormous price on his head. Drenched in blood and mercilessly hunted down, John Wick can surely forget a peaceful retirement as no one can make it out in one piece. Written by Nick Riganas

Second Verse, Longer than First, For Better or Worse
16 January 2021 | by gadagastSee all my reviews

With John Wick 2, there is a trade between some of the grounded elements of the first while the series worldbuilds and elevates the stakes. I am largely ok with this tradeoff, but I could see how it could be offputting to some people. John Wick now has a bulletproof suit and is literally hunted across the planet by rival assassins. Why none of these assassins decide to just camp out in a high rise with a high powered rifle is beyond me. The action is still as slick as ever though, and I will give special props to the score of this one over the first. The dance/electronica rhythms make the carnage feel more civilized somehow.

I feel like I knocked this movie a lot, but it's still legitimately one of the best action movies in recent years.
