John Wick: Chapter 2
John Wick: Chapter 2 starring Keanu Reeves  “In the breathtaking all-action sequel
  to John Wick, the legendary hit man,
  desperate to settle into a peaceful
  retirement, is at odds with himself when
  a former associate approaches him
  about coming back into the business —
  an associate to whom he is bound by
  a blood oath and he therefore cannot
  refuse in John Wick: Chapter 2...”


FOLLOWING THE KILLING OF HIS MUCH-LOVED DOG, given to him by his late wife, top hit man John Wick (Academy Award-nominee Keanu Reeves: The Matrix) exacted revenge upon those responsible — the brother and nephew of Russian mobster Abram Tarasov (Peter Stormare), a member of the Tarasov crime family.

John justifies himself to Abram Tarasov and goes to the chop shop that was owned by Abram's brother Viggo to take back his 1969 Mustang while Abram sends his henchmen to find him, resulting in an extraordinary car chase through New York city's streets, with the Mustang holding its own.

Breathtaking!
With non-stop high
action and a joy ride
like no other,
John Wick: Chapter 2
is a
thrill a minute...”
God help anyone who crosses John Wick Abram admits that everything you hear about John Wick is true, but has been watered down; Wick is not someone you mess with because the reality is far more fearsome even than the legend.

With another dog and a fine home, John decides it is high time he retired and found some peace. He cements his guns, ammunition and all his belongings from his days as a hit man under the floor of his basement.

However, John's dreams of a peaceful retirement are shattered by a knock at the door. Italian crime lord Santino d'Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcia: Burnt), to whom John owes a blood oath, has come to collect.

At first John refuses to help, but Santino burns down his house and John is knocked out. With his dog in tow, John calls at the hotel to see Winston (Golden Globe-winner Ian McShane: Deadwood), the head of the secret assassin society The Continental, who reminds John that all markers must be honoured and no blood should be spilled on Continental ground.

Leaving his dog in the safe hands of Charon (Lance Reddick) at the hotel, John returns to Santino and is shocked when he is asked to kill Santino's ruthless sister Gianna (Claudia Gerini) of the Italian Camorra crime syndicate. She was willed by her father a seat at the table of the shadowy international assassins' guild and Santino wants it for himself. John is to go to Rome and get rid of Gianna to satisfy the blood oath.

In Rome, John is shadowed by Ares (Ruby Rose: Orange Is The New Black), Santino's right-hand woman, who is to ensure John fulfils his part of the bargain. Gianna is surrounded by her men, including her loyal bodyguard Cassian (Golden Globe- and Grammy-winner actor and musician Common: Selma).

Threading his way through the catacombs John finally comes face to face with Gianna. But will he be able to kill her? And if he does, will he be able to get away? It doesn't look as if he is going to escape easily as wave after wave of Santino's men come at him.

But if he does manage to evade them all, how on Earth will he be safe with a worldwide $7 million bounty put on his head?

John Wick is under attack from all sides. And still they keep coming…
