 After retrieving his car John Wick (Reeves) is finally ready to retire to a peaceful life again. But the past comes knocking in form of a debt that needs collected.
 

 After the success of neo-noir action thriller John Wick (2014) the movie was quickly turned into a franchise with this the second installment and a third to follow in 2019. Reeves (The Matrix, 1999) returns as the incredible skilled hit-man who is only unsuccessful when it comes to retiring. The plot takes places only days after the first and therefore very literally continues the tale of John Wick, the legendary hit-man the Russian mob calls ‘Baba Yaga’ (the boogeyman). The movie provides almost non-stop excellent choreographed action with Reeves making it looking natural and realistic, you truly believe in the skills of his character and glee with delight when the manager of the Continental Hotel, a brilliant and cool McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, 2011), tells the bad guy he has made the wrong man angry.  The concept of the criminal world abiding an unspoken code of conduct is interesting and makes a great set-up for an action movie that are equally gritty, cool as well as elegant. But mostly this works due to a great cast (and how fun to see Reeves reunited with his The Matrix costar Fishburne) mainly Reeves at his very best.

 

 
Moviegeek info:
  Keanu Reeves trained for three months To prepare for the role. His training consisted of judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, marksmanship and driving. He performed about 95% of the fight scenes himself. The only stunts that he didn’t do are the ones in which John Wick gets hit by a car, and the one in which he falls down the stairs during the fight with Cassian.
