WHAT I LIKE?
John Wick: Chapter 2 gave the best and most impressive choreographed man-to-man stunts ever made in Hollywood. Aside from a very creative camera angles and positioning, the film brought a realistic thrill with its series of action sequences and seemless car chases and crashes that will truly please action-hungry audiences. For the record, I haven’t watched the first film so I don’t have a basis of comparison. Regardless of that, I was still able to grasp its origins along the way. The plot was not sacrificed as it still tell the story even though there are so many things going around. Despite its general formula of violence and brutality, John Wick: Chapter 2 is entertaining and a brilliantly crafted cinematic masterpiece that showcased the best of Keanu Reeves yet in terms of action films and a breakthrough in action movies as a whole. The movie has full of adrenaline. Worth-watching if you are fan of the first film and the genre.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Well, it is graphically disturbing due to extreme violence. There’s a lot of blood in the film. You may want to skip this one if you are not a fan of non-stop brutality magnified on the big screen.
