Becky and I went to see the new movie John Wick Chapter: 2 two weeks ago the AMC theater in Highlands Ranch, CO with our friends Mark and Maria. The Fandango website at John Wick Chapter: 2 describes the movie as follows…
“Legendary hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is once again called out of retirement, this time by a former colleague (Riccardo Scamarcio) who wants him to repay a debt by killing an Italian crime lord (Claudia Gerini). But when the attempted assassination goes awry, Wick finds himself hunted by an international cabal of killers, and his only hope for survival might be a shadowy figure known as the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne). Director Chad Stahelski and screenwriter Derek Kolstad return for this sequel to their 2014 cult action hit…”
The Review: John Wick Chapter: 2 is a continuation of the first John Wick film that pretty much sucked. This one sucks too. It’s so ridiculous that it’s not even enjoyable to watch as Reeves character runs around making really bad decisions over and over again. He’s like a super hero that is unstoppable, but he doesn’t have any super powers. He can get run over by a car and get up and kick ten guys butt. He can get stabbed, shot at with his suit that is apparently bullet proof and like a Timex watch, he takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
The story makes zero sense. He also knows that if he kills a bad guy that he’s after in a specific area that it will be signing his death warrant, so of course he does that because he’s such a genius he just likes to do stupid things throughout the movie. Don’t get me started on the body count. This guy kills more people than all the people the were killed in every series of The Matrix. It’s beyond absurd and after a while your brain turns to mush watching the movie.
Becky and Maria fell asleep they were so bored and Mark and I both looked at each other thinking that this movie couldn’t get any more stupid. Apparently though people really like this movie. Why we do not know. I like the character and that’s about it, so I rated it a rental at best, but the acting sucks, the directing sucks, the story sucks so there isn’t much to this film. You could stay home and watch your teenager play a video game and it would be about as realistic as this movie.
