Keanu Reeves returns as the man who shoots those who wronged his dog last time, and he shoots them in the face, with lots of great CGI blood splatter.
The first John Wick was a great movie and I really had my doubts after it took six months to come to the UK, but it blew me away, as he does to a lot of baddies.
The first one was produced and directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, and while only the former is credited as director this time, the latter is on hand as executive producer, but as long as both are involved, we should be onto a winner.
As for the plot? That’s not yet known, but the cast includes Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Peter Stormare, John Leguizamo, Laurence Fishburne, David Patrick Kelly, Thomas Sadoski, Common, Lance Reddick and Oleg Prudius as Russian Assassin… as if they need a name in a daft piece of entertainment like this.
John Wick Chapter 2 opens in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017, one week after the US release, and usually the time to dump crap movies in a non-summer slot, but the first movie was superb, so get your tickets early! (or on the day, either’s good)
