In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
The actors who play the Russian mafia brothers, Viggo Tarasov (Michael Nyqvist) and Abram Tarasov (Peter Stormare), are both from Sweden. See more »
After John and Cassian finish their drinks at the bar, Cassian pays for the drinks and leaves. John then encounters Ares sitting in a chair. Ares communicates with John through sign language. She has at least one error and that is her very last sign. She intends to sign the phrase "Round three". However, the sign for "three" is not performed by flashing your index finger, middle finger, and ring finger (that is the sign for the letter "W"). The sign for the number 3 is shown with your thumb, index and middle fingers.
She was not signing "Round Three" but was rather signing John's name (or more accurately his initials "JW" which is very common in sign language when both parties know who you are talking about in order to shorten the number of character signed) with the pinky making a swirl in the air for "J" and the index finger, middle finger, and ring finger for "W". And this corresponds perfectly with the on-screen sun-titles. See more »
I fail to recall the last time you were in Rome. And here I'd heard... you had retired.
Then humor me with,uh... but one question. Sei qui per il Santo Padre?
[translation: Are you here for the Pope?]
All right then.

Don't believe the hype. John Wick: Chapter 2 is not as nearly as good as almost everyone is portraying it to be. It's a generic movie with a dumb story line. Action is very repetitive - I got full-fed with it after seeing first two action scenes.
Best this movie has to offer is close combat, toe-to-toe fight. John employs a lot of jujitsu. Of course he can handle fifty heavy armed marksman with only a pistol. Imagine living in a world without police and emotional guilt of any kind. That's a John Wick's world; a dream-world of any teenager. Nobody in John Wick 2 displays any other emotion other than desire to kill. This makes acting non-impressive, characters forgettable and generic.
And why does almost every location look like a pagan temple? Why does every character look like a brainwashed pagan high-priest? Soundtrack doesn't help it neither; it makes everything feel more unnatural. This is an R rated movie made for 10 year old's.
If you've already seen the original, you won't see anything you haven't seen before. If you haven't seen it, ignore the second part and see the original.
