For anyone weirded out by the intricate mythology crammed into the gutters of the first film's narrative, "John Wick: Chapter 2" might not be your cup of tea. Screenwriter Derek Kolstad clearly has an apartment full of densely filled composition books outlining the entire John Wick Universe and gleefully takes every opportunity to flesh out elements of the fancy, storied criminal underground John Wick must again inhabit. To break down any of the new concepts here would be a disservice to anyone actually planning to seek the film out. You've got to experience The High Table and The Continental's sister establishment in Rome yourself. Few action films in recent memory are able to employ comic book-y world-building quite the way these two films have, and even at its hokiest, it's difficult not to delight in the sheer, restless invention of it all. If, however, you're here for unbridled, efficiently choreographed murder and gorgeously photographed violence, there's nothing to worry about.
