    very good movie :)

    It was surprising that they used a lot of the structure of the first one. What I mean was i thought it was going to be all action 100% of the time. Don't get me wrong it is packed. But like the first one it worked in the story in a nice way. Nothing seemed too out of place. It was a nice continuation. A lot of times movies movies try to do overkill of what was perceived as the best part of the previous movie. This movie actually seemed to keep the overall idea of the first movie intact. It did branch out though. It wasnt static.

    If you liked the first one definitely see chapter 2 :)

    I saw part 2 at the theater on Saturday (watched part 1 at home before going to see part 2).

    It was a really good movie. The new action movie standard has been set. Live up to that!

    Run Jonathan run!!

    Finally got round to watching this. The stakes keep getting higher and higher every time. And no more Continental privileges to strut around. John truly is in deep shit this time. Good thing they confirmed part 3. This is one of those movies I'd easily see more of.

    Some Enter the Dragon shit towards the end. Plus that marker Winston handed over to John. Some story behind that alright. Brilliant stuff all round.

    The 2nd movie started where the 1st left off. As epic and engaging as ever. Plus the ending was more high stakes. A deserved sequel to the first.

    They're way ahead of you. It's supposed to start filiming this fall sometime.

    It's strange that an action film like john wick could actually get more detail and backstory in a sequel. Usually its the opposite. Just take the action that worked in the first movie and ignore everything else and make the explosions bigger is the typical hollywood sequel mantra. But you actually get more in the assassins world in the sequel and keanu reeves really delivers the emotion in this one too, which is pretty surprising in its own right.

    (yep day off :))

    I was listening to The Nerdist Podcast this weekend and listened to the Keanu Interview. He pretty much said that was the direction he was taking it. He wanted to show the two different sides of John. John the grieving husband and John Wick the revenge seeking Boogeyman.

    @Interst1ng - the funny thing is the russian mob leader once said he was they guy you sent to kill the boogeyman in the first movie :D but then he went on to just calling john the boogeyman outright :D

    @yoda313

    Baba Yaga
    In Slavic folklore, Baba Yaga is a supernatural being (or one of a trio of sisters of the same name) who appears as a deformed and/or ferocious-looking woman. Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs (or sometimes a single chicken leg).[1] Baba Yaga may help or hinder those that encounter or seek her out. She sometimes plays a maternal role, and also has associations with forest wildlife. According to Vladimir Propp's folktale morphology, Baba Yaga commonly appears as either a donor or villain, or may be altogether ambiguous.
    Remember, he was referred to as the man you sent to kill the Bogeyman... and that creature was supposed to be the unidentifiable embodiment of terror.

    So John Wick was supposed to be death incarnate, yet ambiguous as to what he might feel. He was the calmest, most effective, scariest individual, yet could be counted on... depended on to defend and assist those he chose to.

    Not exactly like Baba Yaga... but close enough that referring to him as such would make people who were raised with the legend of Baba Yaga know exactly how terrifying he could be.

    took the excertp from Quora. But it seems to sum it out.

    Watched this the other night and was super, super impressed. It was everything a sequel should be by being better in every respect. I was engaged and excited through the entire thing.

    All in all, freaking amazing!
