Great use of color throughout the movie; loved the apathy of passerby as the fight scenes take place in the metro, concert, etc. I think it plays well with the cool and collected nature of the organization John Wick is trying to escape. This universe is certainly not our own. Being familiar with the Russian language, I was a bit critical of the bad accents used (prominently in the first film), but the Italian was much more tolerable for me. Much more fast paced than the first film in my opinion, which can be problematic. I know based on the first film that they are capable of a more dynamic range than just wide-open shootemup the whole movie as this film was, so I hope the third film improves upon this. John Wick is a man of few words, but in this film he seems a bit Flanderized with constant catchphrases (particularly near the end). I understand we're going for boogeyman James Bond-esque status here, but since our perspective is from John Wick himself, I feel that it's more difficult to relate to him now that he has the "Kill 'em all and let god sort them out" attitude. Perhaps this is just part of his metamorphosis now that almost all of the past evidence of his wife has been destroyed. He said he feared damnation, so I am interested in hearing a bit more about how he feels about everything that has happened-- even if it is concise. Loved the elaboration on the secret society, even if they are using archaic (1950s) communication tools. The flavor of this movie is great; the music is great; and the reflection exhibit fight is incredibly interesting and memorable. Hell yeah!

Incredibly entertaining with well shot well choreographed action scenes where you can actually see what's going on, unlike Bourne / Taken etc

Liked how they expand on the world-building from the first movie. There's also just enough humour throughout so it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Leave your brain at home and enjoy the ride.

When Fishburne showed up, I desperately wanted this film to segway into a Matrix reveal. Would explain how Neo was able to singlehandedly kill 200 guys.

The original John Wick left some loose ends - the matter of the car, for example - and some open questions about the hidden world of assassins and just how John escaped it, which fuel Chapter 2 very nicely, thank you. And the way the film opens up that world means the setting is rife for a third installment. Fans of the original will get more of what they loved - extended gun fu battles, the suggestion of a deep world and history for these characters, high profile actors in small roles, baroque environments that make well-known cities look odd and alien, and a brooding protagonist whose very soul is on the line, if not already lost. Like the best sequels, it recaptures all that and makes it bigger. The Russian mob from the original film was a piddling irritant compared to what is essentially SPECTRE in Chapter 2. The settings are stranger and crazier, the hidden world breaching into our own and yet not, the world's rules get more detailed and interesting while still asking some interesting questions, and the movie doesn't forget what it's about, the enduring love John Wick has for his dead wife. A top-notch, relentless action flick that rises above its video-gamey first person shooter aspect thanks to strong editing, visual flair, an emotional core, world building and clear and precise geography.

Much superior to the first film in my eyes. The first go round took a "less is more" attitude with revealing the world of assassins in the hopes that audiences would fill in the blanks and be intrigued by it. However, that technique has to be done with great care otherwise you risk the audience becoming disinterested which I think that film fell into and felt like a clone of The Equalizer. This one gets the balance just right and everything works better. The fight scene in the mirror gallery is pure art, very well pulled off.

Average, not as good as the first.

Storyline sacrificed for fighting.

This is noticeably worse than the first film. This one does some great stuff with the worldbuilding, something the first film generally only hints at. But the action in this sequel is dumbed down and more lazily choreographed than the original. In the first, John is a reluctant strategist. He kills efficiently and when he has to. Now, for some reason, he's a brawler. And when he comes up against another skilled assassin, they each conveniently have horrible aim and can't shoot a slowly moving target that's more than 12 feet away. It looks nice and makes for a fun scene, but is ridiculous if even start to think about it. The movie isn't bad, it's just a disappointing followup.

It's a complementary sequel but I bet the third movie will be much better.

Good sequel but I personally think it suffered from too much plot.
