I have to admit. I didn’t see the first film prior to this one and I wasn’t invested into the character (John Wick) probably as much as someone who had seen the first one. I knew a little bit of the story before watching via the trailer. I loved the character. Who wouldn’t?!? An incredible Hitman “trying” to retire. Unfortunately for John (played by Keanu Reeves), he’s forced out of retirement yet again. Everything John did had a process, even down to getting his suits tailored for him and shopping for weapons. I loved the fact that he (John Wick) is basically out to kill someone and he is impeccably dressed while doing so. You wouldn’t even know he was a hitman just by his outer appearance. This blu-ray will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Seeing Keanu Reeves kick some major butt in the fight scenes were amazing. There are a few familiar faces along the way such as: Laurence Fishburne (who plays Bowery King), John Leguizamo (who plays Aurelio), and Ian McShane (who plays Winston). If you love action-packed films, this blu-ray is for you. The Special features is just an added bonus. I love seeing what goes on behind-the-scenes and what it takes to bring a film, or character to life. Catch John Wick: Chapter 2 out on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K Ultra HD, & Digital HD June 13, 2017.
