    10 reviews, 90% RT. Positive reviews from Variety, HR, EW.

    " lost track of the body count within the first 15 minutes."
    "no, they haven’t come for his cat this time"
    "First, no animals were harmed in the making of the film. And secondly, the human body count is significantly higher."

    really all you need to know

    may have to see it just to find out how they fit "significantly" more kills into the run time.

    They don't have to spend the first fifteen minutes setting up how sad he is anymore.

    Who thinks the original is on par with Die Hard trilogy, Lethal Weapon, Hard Boiled, The Killer, Robocop etc. in terms of adult action films? it was lightning in a bottle for action fans of the 80s and 90s actioners.

    Just got back from seeing it. Think the first one had a better story, but overall it's a pretty worthy followup.

    Also there must have been at least fifty head shots in this.

    I forgot there was a thread for this. Put me in the crowd that liked it. Gun-Fu. Fun and messy.

    John Wick 1 is on Netflix at the moment, so of course I've rewatched it.

    Love this track:

    Like overall.

    But it's hilarious they keep calling him Baba Yaga. Which is actually an old woman, scary old witch, in Russian/East Slavic mythology lol

    Well, they are dealing with the Bratva. The sequel deals with the Italian mafia. So I'm unsure what you can expect of a story set amongst the criminal underworld other than criminal trash. ;)

    John Wick is franchise that we really feel has got traction. It's got legs. It will run and run.

    Huh, who knew he could ride a horse too (I don't think that was mentioned in a previous film?). This is going to be good.

    Eventually he'll drive a bus at top speed into a boat and he'll kill a guy with the steering wheel and clutch
