Retired super-assassin John Wick’s (Keanu Reeves) plans to resume a quiet civilian life are cut short when Italian gangster Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) shows up on his doorstep with a gold marker, compelling him to repay past favors. Ordered by Winston (Ian McShane), kingpin of secret assassin society The Continental, to respect the organisations ancient code, Wick reluctantly accepts the assignment to travel to Rome to take out D’Antonio’s sister, the ruthless capo atop the Italian Camorra crime syndicate.
Keanu Reeves brilliantly plays the deadly hit man who can never cut a break, wants to retire and have a peaceful life but always gets caught up with the gangsters he worked with in the past. Great supporting cast with Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne.
Director of the first film, Chad Stahelski is back for the second time. This is an awesome follow up to John Wick. Action packed, great story, pace and production design makes John Wick 2 a worthy successor.
Thrilling, action that packs a punch and entertaining to watch from beginning to end, John Wick 2 will not disappoint fans. Definitely a must and fans of the first film.
Rating: 5/5 Stars
