John Wick, legendary assassin, is back to do pretty much what he did the first go-around: kill a lot of people. And, since this is a sequel, the body count is naturally even higher. He’s being attacked by all sides it seems in this outing after being coerced into assassinating an Italian crime leader; the man who hired him wants him dead to tie up loose ends and the Italian Crime leader’s men want him dead to avenge their ward’s death. Strength of plot in an action film is usually how smoothly it can contrive its action sequences. Once John Wick gets going, it becomes one incredible sequence after another. The art direction, set pieces, choreography, stunt work are all first rate and inspired. Superior to the first film, this is an excellent action picture.
