QUICK TAKE:
Action: A formerly retired hitman must contend with all sorts of people wanting him dead after he's forced to carry out an execution.
PLOT:
After some Russian gang members killed his puppy and stole his car (in "John Wick"), former assassin John Wick (KEANU REEVES) came out of retirement to deal with them and those attracted by the $2 million bounty put on him by Russian crime syndicate boss Viggo Tarasov (MICHAEL NYQVIST), all of which resulted in a high body count.

Believing that's behind him, John returns to his home that he shared with his late wife, only to learn that fellow assassin Santino D'Antonio (RICCARDO SCAMARCIO) is demanding that John honor a blood oath marker (stemming from Santino having helped John in the past). John wants no part of that, resulting in Santino blowing up his house and prompting John to travel to the Continental Hotel in New York City. It's a place that caters to assassins and other criminal types and is a sanctuary of sorts where no violence is permitted as deemed by its owner and crime syndicate boss, Winston (IAN McSHANE).

He informs John that he must accept Santino's marker or else lose the support of the syndicate. John reluctantly agrees and learns that Santino's desire is for John to assassinate Santino's sister, Gianna (CLAUDIA GERINI). He isn't happy that their late father gave her his seat in a criminal organization, and thus John travels to Rome to do the deed. But he must then contend with Gianna's right-hand man, Cassian (COMMON), wanting revenge, while Santino has also sent his mute assassin, Ares (RUBY ROSE), to make sure John doesn't make it out alive.

Things get worse for John when another multi-million dollar bounty is put on his head, thus necessitating him to seek out help wherever he can find it, even if that means from his former enemy, the Bowery King (LAURENCE FISHBURNE).

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
