Movie Review: John Wick Chapter 2 “A Ballet of Blood”

Keanu Reeves, John Wick Chapter 2

I think the best compliment you can give a sequel is not only is it a better film than the one it follows, but it makes that original film better in retrospect.  I was not an enormous fan of John Wick when it came out (you can read my underwhelmed review here, which I would now probably bump up several points).  I think it was a combination of it being one of those cult movies that gets overhyped  by the time it gets to you and you can no longer be pleasantly surprised along with some thematic material in John’s origin that whacks certain personal buttons with me (btw, we’ll try to stay spoiler free on Chapter 2, but if you read on, I’m assuming you saw the first film).  John Wick Chapter 2 takes everything that worked in the first film, amps it to 11, and ends up being a much better movie that earns both its own existence and the inevitable Chapter 3 to come.

Trailer Time: John Wick Chapter Two Trailer #2 (2017) *Man Loves His Dog; S’all.”

I was not a huge fan of the first John Wick (or THE WORLD’S ANGRIEST PET OWNER).  People hyped it to me as an amazing action movie, and I just thought it was kind of boilerplate, and with any Keanu Reeves movie, you need to have a whole lot of stuff happening so he doesn’t have time to try to, God forbid, act.  It’s kind of like jangling your keys in front of a Golden Retriever so he gets all excited and forgets to drool.  That’s how you win with a Keanu movie.  I did give it a second try, and was less harsh on it.  I can see it as a guilty pleasure action movie. It did extremely well at the box office and revived Reeves dormant career, so there’s obviously now John Wick Chapter 2 (cause it’s so literary).  For more details reed Coming Soon’s take below and check out the trailer and poster for the February 2017 release.
