John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)
For all the hype it got I was expecting a lot more!
As Good As It Gets
This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.
What can I say, the whole acting was just bad, really bad. The only enjoyable was the last 3 minutes of the movie. Plot was dumb, action scenes; you get less action scenes in Mortal Kombats Story more than in thi movie.
'John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)' is one of the rare sequels that matches the quality of the first. I don't think it's better, but it's at the same level and that alone is an achievement. It is a highly entertaining film with amazing fast-paced action that's perfectly choreographed and beautifully brutal. It manages to raise the stakes in a natural, if predictably and unavoidably slightly contrived, way while maintaining a unique narrative and story structure. The action set-pieces find new ways to keep fresh even when they don't need to and its ability to open the world while also deepening it is impressive. The character is at the heart of the piece still and it is also notable that they manage to keep him feeling suitably 'legendary' while being markedly human. There are some crowd-pleasing moments, too, and some slightly outlandish segments that shouldn't work but just do. Lawrence Fishburne is especially charismatic in his slightly smaller role and keeps things delightfully fresh just when they threaten to perhaps become not so. Plus, the piece keeps you on your toes with a few fairly genuine surprises. It keeps you smiling just like the first and also promises a third entry that has the potential to truly excel, whilst also standing on its own feet as a staple of modern action cinema. 9/10
Keep watching John Wick 1 & 2 over and over again. Hope there is a 3rd soon! PLEASE!!!
With so much established background info, there could've been more movies.No more fear of the legend John Wick. Everyone just suddenly willing to take him on. Hero is doing fine with all the injuries sustained. Enemies don't scream when they get shot in the legs/feet. Hero accuracy 100%. Enemies accuracy 0%7/10 overall. 3/10 because it's overrated.
