I don’t know why but I have always been a girl that doesn’t shy away from action movies with a gush of blood and gun play.
John Wick Chapter 2 is as you can imagine, the ideal film for myself and Gary and after seeing it I knew one thing… Keane Reeves is back.
The first film was just a taster of what we can expect from the John Wick franchise and as well as loving the plot, action and acting, I was also blown away at how great Reeves was. Don’t get me wrong, he has entertained me for years but when some actors hit 45 plus, their roles in action films tend to go to younger stars. But there is no one taking over Keane’s throne just yet.
With months of training, stunt driving and gun choreography, Reeves is in full action star mood and it feels like just the beginning of his second action career.
That brings us back to John Wick Chapter two.
The first film didn’t really leave us hanging from a cliff in any way and the instalment almost felt like an unexpected hit with fans loaning their blu-ray copies to their friends. I have lost count of the amount of times I said to my mates; ‘You have to watch this movie, it’s so f**king good!’.
So with the DVD being bought, ripped and downloaded, it was no wonder the team behind John Wick thought it was time for another taste of the action.
I don’t want to give too much away but the plot is thick with revenge, repercussions and John Wick, a man that eventually every assassin in New York is hunting. There are a few moments in the film where the script needed to be tightened but the action and Keane are on top form.
Ian McShane reprises his role(no, not Lovejoy) as the game keeper and secret holder Winston and a pleasant moment in the movie is when Laurence Fishburne and Keane are back on the screen together. Even the part Ruby Rose played made the film feel more dynamic and her mute character was playful with a hint of sinister.
I would definitely give this movie 4 bunnies put of 5(see what I did there) and you will love this movie if you like action and tons of fight scenes. Just one word of warning, if your plus 1 doesn’t like films where people are shot in the face, neck, heart or any other part of the body, maybe take someone with a stronger stomach.
