Consensus: John Wick: Chapter 2 does what a sequel should -- which in this case means doubling down on the non-stop, thrillingly choreographed action that made its predecessor so much fun.

Despite the long takes and the wide angles, the traumatic violence looks like expertly realized C.G.I., combined with elaborately sampled stunt work.

In this cinematic space woven of pure genre, Reeves' Nietszchean hero is all at once entrapped victim, avenging angel and ruggedly individualistic rebel.

Compared to the massive scales of CGI'd blockbusters, John Wick and its sequel offer more cohesive doses of ferocious thrills.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is the apotheosis of a 3 a.m. cable wallow. And loving it doesn't corrupt you.

Any pulp flick can make a man bleed. John Wick smartly keeps the focus on this universe's crazy culture.

I always said after seeing the first movie that it should have been kept as a stand alone, a one off action flick. Yes the movie was a surprise hit out of… More

Absurd, action packed thrill ride. Keanu did a great job once again. Action sequences make up for the lack of story.

"John Wick 2" is a worthy sequel.

After the surprise hit with a very fresh take on action films a sequel was probably inevitable. The film actually does a decent job of faking a story, but in… More
