(2017) (Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio) (R)
- 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.
- 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).
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For strong violence throughout, some language and brief nudity.
