Legendary Hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
I am certain John Wick 2 will be a hit at the box office this weekend. The fight scene’s had me at the edge of my seat craving for more. When John Wick discovered that a large bounty was put on his life, I knew the movie was about to heat up. I found the movie to be fascinating, exciting and fantastic the characters were believable and had crazy charisma. I don’t want to spill the beans too much, but I will say this movie had it’s own flow so don’t build expectations just sit down and enjoy the ride.
John Wick is intended to be a trilogy, this film being the second in that trilogy.
