Keanu Reeves is back again as the very enjoyable action hero John Wick, along with Ian McShane, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, Lance Reddick, and Laurence Fishburne as a great supporting cast.
Set two weeks after the events of the first movie, John Wick: Chapter 2 does a great job building off of its predecessor. From start to finish this movie is exciting as hell, with great stunts and great action sequences this movie really doesn't ever slow down. The fast paced atmosphere of both of theses movies really is what makes them so enjoyable.
This movie really does feel like a continuation of the first one, and one of the great things about a trilogy is that you can tell one story over three movies. So many trilogy's just ignore that and make three completely separate movies with the same characters (especially action movies), but John Wick has done such a good job telling a story over these first two movies and did such a great job setting up a third that we can't wait to see the ending to his story.
Overall this is a very strong and entertaining sequel and we would highly recommend going to see it and if you haven't already, watch the first one!
We give this movie and 8/10.
