The continuing adventures of former hitman, John Wick.
Action Crime Thriller - As with the first film, this is a violent action thriller that is a
big showcase for star Keanu Reeves. Fans of The Matrix series
will be happy to see him reunite with Laurence Fishburne, who has a
small role here. Constant violent action scenes, language, and some
nudity make the film much too intense for children.
PROFANITY: 6 F-words; 1 S-word; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Full female nudity in a bath. VIOLENCE: Brutal and bloody fights, shootings, killings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Fights, shootouts, chases, explosions. COMEDY: Darkly comic lines and situations.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good ..."John Wick: Chapter Two” demonstrates what film as an art form is all about: it awes and delights, challenges and provokes. It also proves that Keanu Reeves is the greatest modern action star and film is better for his return.
NY PostFull Review Average The first "John Wick” was taut and nasty, a potent slug of B-movie. This one is so enamored of its own extravagance that, on more than one occasion, I was reminded of "Zoolander 2.”
Rolling StoneFull Review Very Good Remember how the original John Wick snuck up and wowed us in 2014? Now he's back and better than ever. John Wick: Chapter 2 is the real deal in action-movie fireworks – it's pure cinema, an adrenaline rocket of image and sound that explodes on contact.
Slant MagazineFull Review Very Good The elegant simplicity of John Wick scarcely demanded a follow-up, but John Wick: Chapter 2 remarkably balances its predecessor's spartan characterizations and plotting with a significant expansion of scale.
