“John Wick is a man of focus.”
That line is not an exaggeration. The first minute of the movie and you will be greeted by a car chase. I thought I was watching a Fast and Furious movie until a pair of shoes came down the car. And then it all started… non-stop action and they are not for the faint of heart.
Chad Stahelski, you are one relentless director and I have been skipping some heartbeats every now and then since I started this film. I will watch out for every movie that you have directed and will be directing from now on. You are born to make this movie. You have exceeded the first chapter. You are one to watch out for.
I do not want to spill some spoilers here. I do not want to ruin the greatness of the movie for those who have not yet watched it. I am a fan now of Keanu Reeves and I will from now on see him as a real action star. Damn, I swear I cannot get the movie out of my head. For those of you who have other plans this week, I suggest you cancel it and watch this epic flick John Wick 2.
There are some special appearances from Lawrence Fishburne (The Matrix Trilogy), Peter Stormare as Abram (brother of Viggo in the John Wick first chapter), Ian McShane, Common, John Leguizamo, Riccardo Scamarcio and some amazing cast that made this movie a one hell of a ride from the first minute up to the last. Hey, you do not have to take it from me. Go on and see for yourself.
To the non-action fans, I warn you that this is not going to be pleasant and you will find no peace nor romance during the whole time of this movie. Expect some adrenalin rush every now and then and some surprises and revelations regarding the past of John Wick and his infamous war in his early years as an assassin. Oh, and by the way, remember that story about him and the three men killed using a pencil? He’s done it again (for real) in this chapter and this time, you will believe the stories.
There will be a Chapter 3 as the ending obviously showed us. John Wick against the world!
