Welcome Back, Mr. Wick!

“The man. The myth. The legend. John Wick. You’re not very good at retiring”

“I am working on that”

After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

I’ve been waiting for this one for I don’t even remember how long. Since I watched John Wick in 2014, I became a fan of this character. John Wick, living a dull life, keeping it to himself and far away from the world. But when you mess with him, he will end you.

First of all, I would like to say that I loved the first movie. I watched it, then I rewind it and watched all the action scenes again. It was classy, smooth, had great background score and most importantly, all the action scenes were so well choreographed that it looked like as if they were dancing.

So naturally, my expectations were too high when I went today to watch Chapter 2 and I must say, it was every bit as awesome as the first movie. It was all there! The attributes of the chapter 1 which made me love it so much. The style, the class, sexy action sequences, the fear that the name ‘John Wick’ brings upon the faces of the bad guys, the slight humor about his retirement, his (another) dog etc. made it an apt sequel. Chapter 2 is similar to its predecessor on so many levels but still offers so much more. For example, a jaw-dropping ending which left the audience wanting more.

“Somebody please get this man a gun!”

The cinematography is definitely better. As far as the performance goes, Keanu Reeves never disappoints me. I like all of his performances but now I think I will always remember him in this avatar, as John Wick. The supporting cast did their part pretty well. There were some old faces, mostly new. Special credit should be given to Riccardo Scamarcio, who played Santino D’Antonio. Along with that, I liked Ruby Rose as well. She played a silent sexy killer. She was mute, but even she had some kick-ass dialogues, shown translated on screen!

I loved the experience I had while watching this movie. The deafening sound of the guns, the flashing lights, the flying bad guys and (a small spoiler :)) the bloody pencils! That is why I suggest you go and watch it in theater

He Nailed it!

Against the Odds my friend completed this personal project of his. I was sure he won’t be able to finish it but he showed so much dedication, it felt like I was seeing a totally different person. I am talking about my friend here who nailed more than 5000 nails on a hardboard to make a … Continue reading He Nailed it!
