Mini Film Review – John Wick: Chapter 2

Yesterday I watched John Wick: Chapter 2; and it was pretty good! Directed by Chad Stahelski, and starring Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, and Ruby Rose; John Wick: Chapter 2 is the second film in the John Wick film series, and this time see John Wick called back into action to honour a favour. It has been a few years since I saw the first film, so the opening piece was hard to pick up from, but it was nonetheless exciting, acting as a nice introduction to the chaos to come. Setting the film up was a bit tricky, as it’s hard to see where the film could go from the original, but if you give it time, it all works out in the end, as John Wick goes from being this unstoppable boogeyman, to someone with a real sense of desperation in their mind, and vulnerability. The fight sections are of course beautifully choreographed, and there are plenty of violent moments for fans of violence to get into, but there were also moments for drama and sweetness to. It also features some cool additional castings, with a surprise appearance by Laurence Fishburne, and Ian McShane always delivers a quality, even if brief, performance. Plus the scenes where John Wick is fitted out with clothes and weaponry have something of an interesting mix about them, like you are watching both a trip for James Bond to Q Branch, and Justin Hammer‘s weapon sales pitch, quite a funky little add-on. So altogether it was quite a cool action film!
