I loved the first one, so naturally I'm really looking forward to this one.

Leaps and bounds better than the first. I could have watched ah another hour of it. The best part of the first was the ah nightclub sequence and every action scene in this one improves upon that one. I loved loved loved the world building. It's a fully realized ah lived in universe now. Plus, I thought the villains in this were a lot better. Scummy nasty main villain that ah you wanted to see get a bullet to the head. Common was also a worthy adversary to Reeves (biggest problem I had with the first was ah Michael Nyqvist was 1) not a match for Wick in any way and 2) a bit too sympathetic) and Ruby Rose was at her ah least annoying (the fact that she didn't talk helped). Wick was more vulnerable and human in this one I thought. You can see the ah burden this life has on him and how exhausted he's getting (still the coolness though). Add in more deadpan wit and yeah I doubt that ah I'll see a better movie all year.

It's been a couple of days...but man do I want to see this again. I had such a blast, what an awesome and enjoyable film from start to finish.

Definitely a step up from the first. Didn't think an action franchise like this would work so damn well, but here we are.

What didn't you like about the first one, Diego? The sequel stepped it up in almost every regard, so you might like the second one more, but I can't see you enjoying it much if you didn't care for the action in the first (which is definitely much better in the second, but still retains the same style).

Frank, no offense, but you're dumb as hell.  Would never trust your opinion on anything.

Also, I wasn't the one who complained about Gosling's character in La La Land liking Jazz and not being black to reflect that sentiment (seriously that has to be one of the dumbest complaints ever).

Still love you though, blackman.

Good.  But the feeling's not mutual, beanhead.

You're the type of minority that probably ends up being a bitch to the whitemen.

That is actually more true than you know.

Got two Mexicans back at Battery Barn that love Trump and don't believe the "fake news" about him.
