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.
There are multiple references to the co-op action game "Payday 2", such as a scene where the Payday Clown's masks are seen as graffiti on a wall. The final contract's number, 1111111, was also a slight nod to an inside joke of the Payday 2 community. In the game, John Wick appears as a playable character. When he was first released, he only had one line for when he collected a bag of loot, that line being "ONE!" this line would go on to become a joke among fans of the game as well as turn into a mod that replaced all of John Wick's lines with "ONE!".

Early in the beginning when John Wick is getting his car back and chased by the goons the back window of his car gets smashed at one point, and the front window gets a crack. Both windows are intact on later scenes. See more »
Good afternoon, Mr. Wick. It's been a long time.
I'd like a tasting.
I know your past fondness for the German varietals, but I can whole heartedly endorse the new breed of Austrians. Glock 34, and 26. Rear contoured grips, flared magwells for easier reloads, and I know you'll appreciate the custom porting. What's next?
I need something robust, precise.
Robust, precise... AR-15. 11.5 inch. Compensated with an ion bonded bolt carrier. Trijicon Accupoint with 1-6 magnification.
Could you recommend...

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.
