Can John Wick cheat death over and over or will he fall prey in the game of cat and mouse?
|Hello there Morpheus!|
If you thought the first movie was gory, be prepared for even more body count this time around. I wanted to challenge myself to do a countdown of how many people John takes out but not even halfway, I couldn’t keep up any more. All and anybody who goes against him ends up with dead by getting shot, stabbed, sliced and even ‘pencil’ed’- go figure! Keanu as usual plays his deadpan one dimensional role to perfection it’s hard to imagine if he had ever been happy in his life. The sombre storyline doesn’t help to shine any light on John’s proper background except that he an awesome hired killer. The rest of the cast (cough Ruby Rose) the less I mention about them, the better it is, trust me. The Director could easily made this flick using just three (3) colours, black, white and red if you know what I mean.
