JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 (Released to Theaters USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

 John Wick: Chapter 2—good storyline—seems to have lowered the fight scenes and the rest of the film to a slower frames per second presentation, not enough to present those scenes in slow motion for effect, but slightly. That contributes to a feeling of sterility/not well portrayed for the film in general. That, in turn, makes the film a bit unrealistic and contributes to a general feeling that presentation lacks something.  The first  John Wick ‘feels’ like a good action flick but John Wick: Chapter 2 does not consistently give that same feeling. The writing is good and the dialogue well-written. The movie is still worth watching and earns that coveted recommendation to ‘do not’ pass over it. It’s a good watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?                                      

Yes. This is a good film, but the feel of the portrayal is sterile and not as realistic as desired.
