The man, the myth, the legend. He’s back. The man in black.The baba-yaga. The man who once killed three men with a f*cking pencil.
John Wick is returning to our movie theaters soon and the world will be a better place for it. Let’s face it, the first film is one of the most entertaining and well-crafted action movies of our time. It takes a simple premise, adds heaping doses of hyper-violent action and even has the gall to have interesting characters.
The sequel, helmed by one of the previous directors, looks just as on-point. The snippets of action we see are brutal and intense, the music is anachronistic (yet oddly appropriate), and this time around John (Keanu Reeves) is hanging out in the beautiful city of Rome. The best news? This time, Laurence Fishburne joins the cast, giving us a Matrix reunion we didn’t even know we wanted.
John Wick: Chapter 2 rolls into theaters this February 10, 2017.
