The original John Wick was a surprise like for me. It was one of those films I wasn't expecting much out of, but ended up enjoying it quite a bit. It was pretty obvious that the sequel was going to be made and here we are with John Wick: Chapter 2. It just didn't do it for me.
The plot is pretty basic. Nothing too confusing. Someone from John's past shows up and asks him to do a job. John refuses and of course that's when the shit hits the fan. Instead of playing nice they had to go and piss The Boogeyman off. If you watched the first film, you know not to do that.
Honestly, I probably would have enjoyed this film if it was 20 minutes shorter. I'm all for the secret society of assassins in these films and that whole world that we are thrust into. However, when we are subjected to an endless amount of lackeys being subjected to getting shot every possible way, getting limbs broken with hand to hand combat and what not it even grew tedious to a die hard action fan like myself. Yes, folks, it got old.
This film is getting rave reviews. Maybe I missed something. There are some cool moments, but overall, I felt myself getting a little antsy in my seat and wanting to go for a walk with the Pit Bull in the movie.
