John Wick, Chapter 2 (on DVD)

John Wick, Chapter 2
[DVD John] 

This was not quite as good as the first movie, but it wasn’t bad. It starts where the first movie left off and I’d recommend you watch the first one before this one (I reviewed it a few months ago, so you can check out the details there). I don’t think it’d be as enjoyable if you missed the story and character building in the first movie, throughout which the protagonist John Wick re-enters his previous life in the criminal underworld after being away having a normal married life. He convinced himself that he’s only there temporarily in the first movie, but he’s back in full force in this sequel repaying a debt. There was much less story in this than before and it felt very generic, which was disappointing because of how good the first movie was. It’s not a movie I’d watch it again even though I would re-watch the first one. I can’t recommend it too highly but it’s the sort of movie to watch when are ill and you don’t really care if things make sense and because there is little plot to keep track of, if you fall asleep during parts of it it won’t matter too much.
