John Wick 2


Kiara Billups, Staff Writer

Chad Stahelski is an a film director and a stuntman. Stahelski has directed movies like “V For Vendetta” and “John Wick.” He has worked on movies like “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,”  and “The Wolverine” as a stunt coordinator. Stahelski returns to working with Keanu Reeves by working a sequel to “John Wick,” a movie you can’t help but want to watch. It’s action packed from the beginning and has a little bit of humor. This movie was everything that I expected to see and is worth a trip to the theater.

The film “ John Wick 2” is about a retired hit man named John Wick (Keanu Reeves). Wick is forced out of retirement because he has a blood oath to help a friend, Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio).This blood oath requires Wick travels to Rome to keep his promise to his friend. Wick completes the hit but after the hit things change. What wick doesn’t know that he is now the target because of this blood oath. Some of the assassins are Cassian (Common) and Ares (Ruby Rose).

The biggest theme that viewers will pick up on is revenge. When Wick is betrayed by his friend, he goes and seeks revenge.This concept is important with today’s world because people experience payback at some point in their lives.
“John Wick 2” was a success. The actors and actresses all did an amazing job getting the fight scenes look real and to get the concept across. The film has been in the top three for the last week in the box office. The movie has made $128 million worldwide. This is one of Chad Stahelski’s most successful films. This movie is one of my favorite movies from this year so far. I recommend people go see this film.
