Saw this yesterday. Total badass.

I really liked John Wick. An action movie that's actually good, for once. Can't wait to see if the sequel delivers as well.

Very impressive.

The first film was outstanding.  Really looking forward to the sequel.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

totally this. The shooting drill he performed looks awesome and he looked great....right at that slow mo shot gun shot the gun had jammed and he didn't skip a beat clearing it and getting another round downrange.

And I totally dug the first film and can't wait to see the second one.

The first one was entertaining as hell. Can't wait for this one. Its also impressive that he does most of the fighting himself.

The first movie was one of the more pleasant surprises I've had as far as films go in a while, very much looking forward to a sequel.

I didn't watch John Wick until I heard all the recommendations.  Perhaps because of that, it was just ok for me.

Going back to the original video, I do have some jealousy for actors that get paid to learn new skills.  We'd have to find the time to fit some of these hobbies in, whereas they get to do it on the clock.
I wish death upon Mitch McConnell and Pat Robertson in comment sections all the time. I'll admit that I'd be thrilled if either one of them died of a stroke tonight.

I just scored two free tickets to a screening of John Wick II next Tuesday night. I follow a local movie reviewer on Twitter and he sent out a link that the promoters had set up, I clicked and signed up and got in before there were no more seats available. I'm assuming that the theater likes to make sure it's full and there are only so many movie reviewers? Anyway, I had planned on seeing this next weekend anyway so getting to see it for free is bonus...plus the theater the screening is at is one of those with the leather comfy seats that recline with seat side service.

Wasn't there a spinoff about some guy that was basically like a walking encylopedia that knew something about everything, but the problem was that you never knew if you could trust him because a lot of his info came from suspect sources?  John Wiki?

Actually that movie never saw the light of the day. They had finished shooting it and everything, but before they could finish all the post-production (CG, score, sound effects etc) someone leaked the movie online and the really negative reaction convinced the studio to just trash the whole thing.

Interestingly, there was a documentary made last year about how that all went down, I think it was called Wikileaks.

WOW! That's the first time I've seen that. I guess we'll see 1 or 2 more "head shots" in the sequel.

LOVED the first! Just a plain 'punch your teeth in' type movie. Please, no puppy killings in the next one, I hate that. Can't wait!! ;D

Just got back from the screening and all I can say is Wow! If you liked the first one you'll love this one....not only is it action packed but they manage to throw a solid story in there and the secondary characters are pretty cool. There are a couple well choreographed...long a$$ gun battle scenes that you can absolutely tell how much training Reeves did to pull these things off. It was cool to watch. And don't fret....the probability is very high that there will be a Third Chapter of John Wick, and after this movie I see no reason why they'd stop now.

Nice to hear! I was afraid they wouldn't be able to recapture what made the first movie good.

IMO it's a better all around movie and the action sequences are just as good, dare I say better than the first film. I'm still in awe of some of the gun battle / action sequence choreography. It was intense.

I had always dismissed the first one as a dumb action movie but it seems to get a lot of love so I might check it out. They've been playing audio trailers for this one on the radio non-stop and the dialogue just seems god awful.

Let me say the first John Wick is friggin bad ass. Brilliant movie. Let me say John Wick 2 is even more bad ass.  pure fun and the shootout scenes make Heat and Commando look like a muppets movie.fun flick. don't know how many more legs this series can go. but this is an awesome movie. haven't had more fun at a movie in years

Totally agree. There's definitely a third as it's already out on the interwebz that it's being undertaken by the same team who wrote/directed/produced etc this second one. I'd like to see them tidy the series up with that one and not let this go until it was awful. For those who've seen it or will see it it's not incredibly difficult to surmise what the Third Chapter will entail as far as storyline, but I can only assume they'll TRY to top the gun battle scenes and stunts of chapter two....which will be a tough thing to do.

Cuz as you stated, it's some of the best if not the best gun battle sequences and choreography I've ever seen in ANY action movie. That party/catacomb battle sequence was awesome. I love Wicks signature move of shooting them in either the foot or leg to distract them from shooting, having them keel over then popping the head shot. He does it time and time again but when you think about it it's a perfectly logical and effective method. Shoot someone in the foot or leg and they immediately hunch over and the last thing they're doing is thinking of firing back at you. Anyway....

It may only be a shoot em up action movie but both movies are Top of The Class, Cream of the Crop shoot em up action movies. Far superior to the Bourne series by a long shot.

I liked the first JW movie, by reading these reviews I want to see part 2 now. I'm not a fan of bang bang shoot-em up movies but if the storyline is good I can make an exception. I just hate gun violence! It is too much of a reality in this world and Hollywood turns it into entertainment, seems kind of weird..

Agree 100% dude. It will be hard to outdo this one but a third is needed. Just don't bleed the franchise to death.

So how is the directing on the first one? Awesome?

Well, I just saw it and of course it was mental.

The first hour I was a little bored since he was on god mode and everything, but once the contract went out it became way more interesting and stakes were raised. And at first I was like "why the hell is no one in this city reacting to murder and knife fights in the streets?" and then I figured out toward the end that oh, its just an entire city of assassins  :lol   Which I am totally fine with

And Ian Mcshane was incredible as always.

I can't wait for 3. Its going to be insane :metal
