John Wick: Chapter 2 is the exciting return of retired assassin John Wick (played by Keanu Reeves), who now has to return to the business because of a blood debt he made to gang leader Santino D’Antonio (played by Riccardo Scamarcio) that helped John get out of the assassin lifestyle the first time. Now it’s time for John to pay up, and is ordered by Santino to kill his sister Gianna D’Antonio (played by Claudia Gerini), who is going to gain a seat at the High Council of the rulers of assassins. Santino ordered this so then he can get the seat at the High Council and take over New York. John refuses at first, but the rules say that you must honor a blood debt. So John does the job, which causes draws a new target on his back.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is a roller coaster ride of fun. Keanu Reeves is great as John Wick and still brings his A game to this part. The action is better in comparison to the first film. The gun battles for example, are more intense, gritty, and very exciting. John Wick: Chapter 2 also shows more of the assassin world and how it works. The ending of this film is great in getting the audience hyped up to see the next instalment. The only thing that is weak about John Wick: Chapter 2 is that the first half is a little slow and takes awhile to get from one plot point to the next. Also some of the violence that John survives is very unrealistic. John Wick: Chapter 2 gets 9/10 stars.
