    What Every Sequel Should Be: A Relentless Masterpi

    John Wick wasn't designed for a sequel. It began with someone killing John Wick's dog, and ended with the vengeance-bent uber-assassin stealing a new best friend from an animal shelter, after dropping 76 dead bodies along the way. The movie succeeded not on the strength of its story, but on the elegance of its action, and while it reaches at times to justify its own existence, John Wick: Chapter 2 boasts a reunion with Matrix co-star Laurence Fishburne and two major improvements on the original: First, no animals were harmed in the making of the film. And secondly, the human body count is significantly higher. If the latter detail offends your humanistic sensibilities, then this isn't the franchise for you. Even for Grand Theft Auto junkies and those at the other end of the spectrum, it can actually get tiresome watching Wick eliminate a seemingly inexhaustible stream of henchmen at times. But there's a quality to the violence here that elevates it above the literal and reprehensible nihilism of movies and instead achieves something more akin to dance. John Wick: Chapter 2 pits Keanu Reeves' titular character against the mean and nefarious of the criminal underworld. Once again, Reeves proves that he is a force to be reckoned with in this ridiculous, over-the-top sequel that is every bit as fun as the original. These types of films are rarely known for their artistic value but sets the bar pretty high, not only in its action, but in it's set design and camera work. This is pure escapist entertainment and is exactly what you're looking for. The look and feel of the film is very much in line with the first. It has beautiful, vibrant colors that compliment the violence and chaos. The sound is absolutely amazing with each gun sounding the way they should instead of using the stock machine gun or pistol sound which is something the original was guilty of at times. The performances are incredible and the direction of the action sequences is beyond impressive. This is a bigger John Wick and one that does a nice job at expanding on his world. The only issue that the film may have depends on your taste in action films. This is considerably longer than the original but it moves so fluidly and frenetic that it barely feels like it.

    John Wick 2 accomplishes what very few sequels can and it does it so well that now I have anxiety for part 3! The stakes are raised, the pacing is incredible, the lore of the criminal underworld is heavily expanded on, it's thematically strong, and the tension between Keanu and Common is so high that it'll compress your blood into diamonds. My only complaint involves a WTC Path train and if you're a train-hopping NJ/NY scumbag like me then you'll know what I'm talking about but to be honest though it only irked me a little bit and the scene is still baller AF. Watch John Wick 2. Don't be standing in Best Buy with a copy of John Wick 2 in one hand and 2 Fast 2 Furious in the other contemplating. Nah do the right thing. Buy John Wick 2 and put the other movie back in the bargain bit. Watch John Wick 2. WATCH IT. And if you haven't seen part 1 then that's the first thing you need to get once that tax return money comes in along with part 2 while you're still in the store. Then with whatever money is left over go watch John Wick 3 in theaters. Then go back to Best Buy and get that steelcase BluRay/DVD/Digital HD/4K/LMNOP edition of part 3 when it's released months later. I'm stoked. You should too. Divorce rates drop when couples keep John Wick in their household.

    Awesome movie with awesome Atmos audio

    I'm giving my audio review based on using Dolby Atmos speakers in "Top Middle" mode. The movie is a great sequel. So first of all, the scene at the beginning driving aggressively into a garage was awesome, and you can hear the tire screech echos above you through the first scene, you really feel like you're there because of it. When john wick is in the tunnel with the shotguns and a ton of rifles and pistols, oh man the Atmos effects really POPPED. The echos were great, but the bullet ricochet sounds were the best. Much of the scene was from johns perspective so most bullets went to the back not the top, but the echoing was really good regardless. There was a lot of exaggeration when glass breaks, or when people shoot from above, which helped nail the scene realism. I saw this movie day 1 in the theaters and i thought it was great there, but im obsessed with dolby atmos audio effects from above, and john wick 2 delivered! It had lots of the same ricochet exaggerations that the john wick 1 4k had with dolby atmos.

    I don't think Mr. Reeves is a great actor. He's been great in a variety of classics: RIVER'S EDGE, BILL & TED, SPEED, THE MATRIX, etc. But in my humble opinion, he is most powerful as a well-played card. And John Wick is a perfect play. The first chapter was a hair better for me, but maybe that's because it had to create the character and set up the mayhem to come. That said, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is a non-stop barrage of car chase, gunplay & destruction that promises one thing: more to come! Like a classic middle chapter in a trilogy, we take our hero through intense struggle only to discover that he is far from free at the end! And yes, Chapter 3 seems to be in the works. Ian McShane is perfect again as the benevolent King of The Continental & Peter Stormare helps us get the ball rolling at the beginning. Common is fantastic as a deadly bodyguard. Basically, imagine the scenes in the MATRIX flicks when Neo was beset by piles of Agent Smiths, then replace Smith with a variety of assassins and underlings and set it in Rome & New York. Be excellent to yourself and get extra cheese for this pizza party.

    A New Chapter

    As we all know, rarely do sequels come close to being as good let alone better than the original. Jon Wick Chapter 2 accomplishes where others have failed. I was a huge fan of the first John Wick when I saw it in theaters. I also knew that there was a sequel on the table but I was afraid that they were going to go with the whole "Taken" route and make it a plot about relatives wanting revenge on John Wick for killing their relatives etc. Instead, John Wick 2 orchestrates an action packed plot that explores the world of the Assassins and also gives us a peek as to what John Wick was really like before he sought out retirement. I'm anxious for the third chapter after the cliff hanger ending of this movie. It's good to know that we won't have to wait three years since production starts later this year. This film is a must for your collection.

    Loved John Wick Chapter 2. It starts off concluding the first movie as John recovers his car with several minutes of crazy action. The weapons were great, the action was stylized and fluid and John battles throughout. There is not a great deal of dialogue, but that is who this character is. It did not have the same heart as the first John Wick, but it had a great deal more action and introduced a lot more characters setting up the 3rd chapter. If you are fan of the original, then you will love the second chapter. There is a great deal of violence and language, so not recommended for younger viewers.

    I was a huge fan of the original John Wick. It was a pleasant gem that was recommended to me by a friend. John Wick 2 leaves off where the first one ended. Keanu reeves stars as the John Wick, a hitman who wants to retire from his profession after the death of his wife. John Wick 2 opens up the world that Wick once belonged and gives as a glimpse of what his life once was. John is trying to retire peaceful but a blood marker is called in and John is forced to be the hitman he so desperately once behind. The job is not as simple as it is presented. John is double crossed and must fight for his life as he transforms for hitman to prey. Like the first one, the second one is action packed from beginning to end. If you are fan of the first I highly recommended the second. Easily 4 and half stars out of 5.

    The film - The boogeyman is back and better than ever. John Wick 2 expands on the original in pretty much every way. The story dives much more in depth into the world of assassins that John Wick lives in. Things that were left a little ambiguous in the first film are more fleshed out this time without compromising on what made the first one so great. And the action sequences are top notch, much better than in the first film. Seeing Keanu Reeves running around killing bad guys in a variety of different and inventive ways never gets old. If you're into action films, then this is the film for you. The Blu-Ray - The blu-ray is great. Visual quality is good, audio quality is good, some extra bonus stuff to watch. What else could you want? Overall - Definitely get this film.

    I loved this film. I loved the extras even more. When I buy a bluray or 4k disk I want extras and John Wick pulls through! Ok when I watch films I do so on a 180" movie theater screen with full 7.1 surround sound and the Buttkicker transducer system. This is not to Boast but to give an idea of the clarity that I rate both 4k and 1080p films. 1st off regardless if you are huge into 4k or still collect Blu-ray; I will add that with today's (Oppo) upscaling technology along with upscaling technology on theater projectors that the difference between Blu-ray & 4k is minimal. I will say that going over 180" that you will likely see a difference and recommend 4k for 150"+ screens. I found the film Perfect in both color, picture, sound, and .......everything, just buy it. Enjoy it!

    We all know the film is great, so no problem with the content. However, this is the first 4k Bluray I've purchased and I found out the hard way that standard Bluray players won't even recognize that you've put the disk in. You have to have a player that specifically states it will play 4k disks. The ones that say they can do 4k upscaling won't cut it. The 4k discs use a technology that is distinctly different than standard Bluray. So if you want to see these in ultra rez, you're going to have to get a new one, preferably one that also supports HDR because that is a common component of the new discs. Fortunately, all new products also come with a standard 1080p disc that will all play on standard players, so you will be able to watch the Ultra HD versions.

    This is not a review of the movie. If I wanted to review the movie or read a review of the movie then I would go to Rottentomatoes or a similar site. This is Best Buy and I'm purchasing a movie because I want to purchase the movie and I know what I'm watching. This review is about the product. The quality of the 4K is very good but it's not a true 4K transfer. The studio has upscaled the 2K image to 4K and retouched the content. The audio, especially the Dolby Atmos is amazing when you have the right setup. It is a definite buy if you want to show off your home theater setup. The Featurettes are very informative and show plenty behind the scenes. They are very similar to what the first movie set offered.

    The first John Wick is quite the surprise. While I do love sci-fi and superhero films, there is something about a physical and raw film (with some, but less CGI). It was refreshing. The sequel does what every sequel hopes to do. Namely, take what is good and expand upon it. John Wick Chapter 2 does that in spades. You get all the insane action and long cuts (no boring and confusing rapid fire editing here - yep I'm looking at you Bourne) from the original and also a much deeper look into the assassin underworld. It is intriguing to see new characters and "new" rules for the crazy world. Kudos to the entire team for making a leap (much like the Terminator to T2). Bigger and deeper, and I can't wait for chapter 3!

    This is a sequel, but the recap in the first set of action packed scenes is such that not seeing the original is not a handicap to enjoying this movie. It is action packed pretty much all of the way through the movie. John Wick is a retired hitman reluctantly coerced into doing one more job after coming out of retirement after a savage assault on him in the first movie. He does the job and is immediately betrayed by the criminal who forced him to do the job. It does not go well for the criminal and all the lowlifes that he set on John Wick. The special features are also very good. Keanu Reeves did an amazing number of his own stunts because he trained up to do them over a pretty long period.

    No spoilers. Huge fan of the first film and I am not a big Keanu fan at all; just glad the production had a great eye for solid action, a true rarity in US films. The second improves on the first by expanding the world so much. The first movie had a basic story, not bad by any means, but the sequel fleshed out so much, makes it a bigger, living, breathing world. The action does not disappoint again, not anything that eclipses the original but still on par. It doesn't surpass The Raid or Raid 2 but it's in the same company and definitely better than the trash CG bland action movies that the US has produced lately. If you liked the first, you'll love Chapter 2.

    Definitely worth adding to your 4K collection. Great action ad amazing (non-stop) gun battles. Keanu is great in the role as Jon Wick. I prefer the first movie (story wise) over the sequel, but both are great and highly re-watchable. The Neon color palette / aesthetics and every gun shot burns off the screen in vivid bright fireballs of jaw dropping awe. This movie is in everyone's Top 10 for reference quality 4K discs. Usually it's either a great movie, or a great Transfer, but with John Wick... you get both. It's a No-Brainer... if your reading this review, stop, add the movie to your shopping cart and start enjoying your 4K television purchase.

    He's back at it again. Without really wanting to be doing this he is pulled into it again and again the body count is enormous. Keanu succeeds again as the assassin with minimal emotions. At times I chuckled because his adversaries had not learned anything from the first movie of how efficient Mr. Wick really is. Somewhat like the Bond series, you have to ignore reality to a point and accept this world being presented because it is entertaining. What you should also be acknowledging is that in real life there is no way this dude gets this far and drops so many with nary a few scratches. Have fun watching.

    The movie itself is awesome but that’s not why you buy this movie. You buy it because of HDR and DOLBY ATMOS. The picture is phenomenal, talk about color pop, holy smokes. And Dolby Atmos is the end all be all of audio codec. If you have a Dolby Atmos sound bar or receiver than you’ll thoroughly enjoy the bullets wizzing over your head. It’s an amazing experience. Definitely a DEMO movies for friends and family. Got this on sale at BestBuy and it was worth every penny. The movie is awesome as well. John Wick doing what he does and the cinematography is nearly perfected in this movie.

    John Wick 2 could have been too much of a good thing, answering too many questions about the world set up in the first movie, trying to shoe horn in too much lore and backstory, whittling away the mystery that made the first movie so intriguing and and fun. Luckily, I didn't feel that way at all after seeing this movie, and I'm actually anticipating the third. This movie is even more action packed and fun than the first movie, it's ridiculous, almost a superhero movie in a sense, and while it does flesh out the world established in the first movie, it manages to do so without completely robbing it of intrigue.
