In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, Rolling Stone calls John Wick Chapter 2 “pure cinema, an adrenaline rocket of image and sound that explodes on contact.” Legendary hitman John Wick [Keanu Reeves] is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
Critic Comments: “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 … .” (Rolling Stone)” John Wick: Chapter 2 has style to burn, and oh! what violence — terrible, bone-crunching, glorious violence, beautifully orchestrated by director Chad Stahelski.” (Time) “The idea of a secret world of professional killers adhering to a set of civilized conventions may sound absurd, but it’s what makes the Wickverse more intriguing and far richer than the usual numbskull orgy of cinematic nihilism.” (Entertainment Weekly) “A more audacious film, bolder and more violent than its predecessor. It’s also surprisingly hilarious, wringing humor from physical pratfalls and dry wit in unexpected moments.” (RogerEbert.com)
