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

John Wick: I'd like a tasting.
Sommelier: I know of your past fondness for the German varietals, but I can wholeheartedly endorse the new breed of Austrians. Glock .34 and .26. Recontoured grips. Flared magwell for easier reloads. And I know you'll appreciate the custom porting. What's next?

A blast with pitch perfect action and scenery
24 February 2017 | by paulijcalderonSee all my reviews

Stunning! I liked it more than the first one. Loved the Italy setting and the way it expanded the world. The scenes in the museums and art galleries are a feast to the eye with all the rich colors and amazing scenery. This movie looks beautiful.

I have a lot of respect for Keanu Reeves. I remember watching "The Matrix" when I was young and that was something that I took inspiration from whenever I tried to film my own action movies. The way Reeves handled all of that choreography and stunt-work in those movies was inspiring. He is perfect as John Wick, there's nobody else for that role. What he does with the action here in this one is extraordinary. Hats off to everyone involved with the stunts because I can tell how much hard work went into it. The rest of the cast is great. Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Franco Nero, Peter Stormare etc. Lots of respect to them all. Everyone has a very welcomed presence.

The calmer scenes are nice too. I could actually watch an entire movie about just a normal calm day with Keanu and the dog. Their friendship is touching to me. I don't know, there's something very humble and beautiful whenever we see them living a quiet life before all the action starts. This movie is not completely serious either, it has many funny moments as well. Especially at a part involving a walk to the subway. Oh, and there's this moment with a water fountain which I really liked. The locations they used here are pitch perfect by the way. I mean, I'd like to visit many of them now.

This movie is an experience. I had a blast. Hats off again to the filmmakers. If you have a hard time watching films with a lot of violence or action, then you should probably not watch it. But, to any fan of the genre: it's a must see.
