Action for Action’s Sake: John Wick Chapter 2 (2017)

John Wick Chapter 2

Honor among thieves, binding rules of conduct for jet-setting assassins, fight scenes that go on for thirty minutes of a movie’s runtime: all dubious tropes. At the same time, if these are an action film’s bedrock, it’s not a bad place from which to build a yarn.

That’s exactly what John Wick Chapter 2 does.
