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.
Keanu performed about 95% of the fight scenes himself. The only stunts that he didn't do are the ones in which John Wick gets hit by a car, and fell down the stairs during the fight with Cassian (Common). See more »
There are several mistakes when Cassian chases John Wick though the subway station.
They both board a NJ Path train, However, the train announcer says it is a "Broad Street bound B train", which it cannot be if it is a NJ Path train. Also, the trains that terminate at Broad Street are the J and Z trains, not B.
The NJ Path train only has stops in Manhattan between 9th through 34th Streets, and separately, directly to the World Trade Center. NJ Path train does not stop at any of the stops mentioned by the train announcer (Canal Street; Rector Street; Broad Street); and the several stops mentioned as "next stops" do not follow each other: Rector Street does not follow Canal Street; Broad Street does not follow Rector Street.

Love letter for action genre written by bold bloody hallmark, and a pencil.
If there's an equivalent of classical orchestra for untamed unapologetically brutal carnage, there's no doubt it'd be John Wick. Dancing through hail of bullets, horde of assassins straight from video game, oozing noir style from each drop of blood, John Wick: Chapter 2 is nothing short of an artistic spectacle.
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns to the killing business begrudgingly as one of his old acquaintances asks for a morbid favor. The cloak-and-dagger scheme soon flies into multiple directions, partially towards the back of few characters and the rest goes straight to the chest. There's an air of familiarity as the movie visits previous characters while introducing an array of new ludicrous ones.
It keeps the formula nearly identical, adding more to its melee and shootout fun. There's everything one loved from the first, now pouring abundantly. Combat is arguably the best action choreography one could possibly ask for. Punches, kicks, submission holds, and even dirty pokes are delivered with sheer primal vexation and the finesse of ballet performance.
Both the anti-hero and his rivals press forward in locomotive of mayhem, any fans of action movies and combat sports will be gleefully entertained. In fact, such simple concept of "one versus many" is ageless and universal, it worked since Bruce Lee's time and now told by razor-sharp spectacular visual, John Wick is the finest action of modern time.
