Keanu just needs to stick with this group of creatives for the rest of his career. They're good for him.

Pretty much. That character is perfect for him.

So John Wick 2's official title is John Wick: Chapter Two.

That works.

I finally got around to watching the movie. Very well made film is I do say so myself, and a bit like Mad Max Fury Road in terms of how it handled world building.

Heck, I'll go so far as to say that it is up there in terms of my favorite action films of the decade, though I wouldn't go so far as to place it near my top favorite action films.

That's impressive gun work. On a par with the stuff Tom Cruise had to do with "Collateral". And that guy is fucking scarily fast with a hand gun.

I'mma crossposting that link in the Gun Porn thread - more folks need to see this.

Keanu Reeves may be one of the most dangerous men in Hollywood.

The thing that interests me is the fact that Keanu mentioned how this one will be more intense than the last installment....Damn. Hell, this could mean that we'll be getting a Darker and Edgier sequel as well, though that's not guaranteed.

How exactly do you darker and edgier for a sequel to a movie about a hitman who comes out of retirement and effectively wipes out an organized crime family as he attempts to avenge a dead puppy that was the last gift from his dead wife?

The interesting thing Keanu has said is that he sees it as John Wick being basically two different people. "John", the loving husband, family man and now widower who is friends with the community and respected by all, and "John Wick", the ruthless, stone-cold killer who takes out his foes with surgical precision and no mercy. He has said John Wick Chapter 2 will be about "John Wick's" past infiltrating "John's" life, and in a way "John Wick" has to save "John".

It's a very cryptic way of describing things, but it does sound interesting. Presumably, some old foe of John Wick will want vengeance, and thus the functioning logic of "John Wick" having to save "John".

[up] That definitely is a intriguing concept, even if I have to wonder who'd be stupid enough to really think it's a good idea to go and kick that particular hornets next.

Though it's probably more likely it's another 'accidental' "You really shouldn't be an absolute surprisedsurprisedsurprisedsurprised to people" type thing.

Huh sounds interesting. I wonder if it's like a Die Hard situation.

You know John gets caught in the wrong place and ends up dealing with old faces.

[up][up][up] I love that, because it's definitely a huge part of what makes Wick such a great character (at least in my opinion, anyway) and hearing the man himself talk about the character like that is just really cool.

Also, just to speculate a bit, it might not be a matter of John Wick reacting to someone else's actions, he could be pre-emptively going out to cut all remaining ties with the criminal underworld to make sure no one fucks with him again, to be forgotten. That to me seems a little darker a concept than him having to defend himself because then you have Han shooting first, if you will. (Though from the way Keanu worded it, it does seem less likely than the other option).

Leguizamo's character is coming back. This pleases me.

Hopefully with a bigger role this time.

EDIT: John Wick 2 is already kind of one, but if there's a third movie, I want it to be even more of a Matrix cast reunion, with Carrie Anne-Moss and Hugo Weaving in it. tongue

The synopsis given seemed to be about someone trying to take over the assassin's guild John works for. I wonder if that will be Laurence Fishburne's elusive "Bowery King" character.
