John Wick: Chapter 2 Even Better Than Its Original
It is a very rare sight when a sequel surpasses its original content in terms of Hollywood movies but the Keanu Reeves starrer, Chad Stahelski directed movie John Wick: Chapter 2 has excelled in many folds than its original release about John Wick, "the man, the myth and the legend".
What keeps you glued to the seat right from the start till the curtain drop, is the narrative of the film and of course Keanu Reeves' acting which is at its peak. The motorcycle chase at the opening page of the movie, sets the tone for the rest.
While the first part of the movie revolved around a bit tragic love story, don't expect the second part to just kick off from there. It is altogether a different setting, a different atmosphere, although his past still continues to haunt him down.
Well, the saying about the man in the first part "The Boogey man, a man of focus, commitment and sheer will power who killed three people with a pencil" has been picturized in the second. Well, not literally though but with the amount of raw action incorporated in the film.
Keanu Reeves as the protagonist John Wick, has been impressive and stylish, who single-handedly fights and finishes off all his foes. But then, if you can buy superhero movies as a series piece of drama, then complain not about anything here.
Overall, the John Wick: Chapter 2 is magnified and action-packed and a true gift for the lover of the action genre.
