Sequels rarely are. What do you expect from Keneau? Gone with the Wind?

The first one had bad-ass muscle cars, some gun-foo scenes, and some zinger lines.

Say what you will about Keanu, but he has definitely put in the work. Here is a video of him training with Taran Butler. There is also some good video of him training BJJ.

John Wick was pretty good, it also had some droll humor. I always watch a movie such as this as if it takes place in some alternate universe, don't even worry about whether it could even happen in "our world".

Besides which, it's a movie, which means it really didn't happen anyway.

Let's just hope this was AFTER "training" with Aaron Cohen.

Hahaha, good one

No, but I think the first JW was "believeable". The trailer seems way over the top.

At least in this one he has a bad ass pup and not that little foofoo dog like the one Sharky carries in his purse.

I go to movies to suspend belief. I was 11 when Rocky came out, and by the time Rocky III arrived I was ready to be a boxer. LOL.

Movies are about fun, not accuracy. The movie "Act of Valor" is still one of my top 3 movies. "Lone Survivor" is another one. And on down the line.

Movies are about getting away.

Wick drops the word "Tactical" in the first few seconds of the John Wick 2 trailer; So you know its going to be good.

My 2 girl cousins live in Pennsylvania and they spent a week at their own expense to be extras on that movie. Most of the football scenes were done at the Baltimore Ravens stadium. They got fed 2 crappy hot dogs a day for sitting in the stands in scorching hot weather.
