    John Wick 2 (film) - Someone's killed his cat?

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Do you ever not fall for the hype?

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    I only recently viewed the first film and was thrilled with it. Fantastic action and style. It's just fun with guns, cars, explosions, and fatalities like some of the great action films of the eighties. I'm glad the reviews are positive and looking forward to chapter 2!

    Well, I think this film has the record for head shots now...

    I'd also suggest it sets the record - previously held by Commando - for most number of baddies unable to shoot/kill the hero.


    I'd say it's not as good as the first IMHO. Still enjoyable with some very good action scenes, but seems a bit talky and "up-its-self" in places... Seems to end suggesting chapter 3?
