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
Keanu Reeves says to Laurence Fishburne, "So I guess you have a choice." This phrase, or variations of it, was a constant theme of these actors' previous collaboration, the Matrix Trilogy (1999-2003). See more »

I'm not going to spoil the plot or any of the most memorable action scenes from the movie, I'll just write this:
John Wick: Chapter 2 is a worthy successor of the first movie, it expands the universe, giving you insight into the interior of the world of assassins and maintains the insanity of action sequences from the first movie.
Memorable scenes, unexpected humorous tone of some dialogues and shootouts, really interesting world and Keanu Reeves who, as usual, commits 100% to the action sequences (just watch his training videos on youtube, mad respect for this guy!)
I believe that true efforts to entertain you should be rewarded. In a world of shitty, worthless, cashgrab sequels (like, say, Fifty Shades Darker, released the same day as John Wick 2), sequels like JW:C2 deserve to be praised. Amazing movie!
