JOHN WICK CHAPTER 2

Keanu Reeves is back as “the boogeyman”, John Wick and the bullets are flying!!!

Back in 2014, a hit man known to the underworld as “the Bogeyman” aka John Wick began his retirement. Wick grieving over the loss of his wife who died from cancer, set to live alone with his dog until the Russian mob killed his dog and stole his car. Wick eliminated them all. John Wick: Chapter 2 picks up right where the first left off. A man on a motorcycle is being chased by a Chevy SS and ultimately crashes and out of the car emerges John Wick! He takes a key card from the biker and takes it to a cab warehouse. Abram Tarasov (John Stormare), brother to the late Viggo who was killed by Wick, answers the phone in the warehouse and hears the bogeyman say, “I’m here for my car.”

Wick gets hid car and kills a lot more Russians in the process. Aurelio (John Leguizamo) stops by and tells John he can have the car fixed in 2020. Later that evening John has another guest, Santino D’Antonio (Ricardo Scamarcio), Santino came to have Wick honor his marker. Wick made a blood oath in order to “get out” of the business and live with his wife. D’Antonio told Wick he would have left him alone if he had stayed retired.

XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE

Vin Diesel is back from the dead as adrenalin junkie Xander Cage in XXX:The Return of Xander Cage!

“X takes care of it’s own”

Augustus Gibbons (Samuel Jackson) is back at it again recruiting extreme athletes to work in his covert special forces team, XXX. While having lunch with soccer star Neymar, a satellite crashed into the restaurant supposedly killing them both.

Jane Marke (Toni Collette), head of the CIA, briefs her team that they are dealing with “Pandora’s box”, a device that locates satellite orbiting the earth and crashes them to earth to a precise location like a missile. The meeting is disrupted by a team of extreme athlete’s (Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone and Tony Ja) that take the box. Marke has to find someone that can walk through a hurricane and can get the box back and avenge Gibbons’ death.

We find Xander Cage (Diesel) laying low in the Dominican Republic stealing electronics for the local bar to get satellite feeds for the locals to watch soccer. Cage is XXX, so his escape is breath taking, from down hill skiing through the jungle to break neck skateboarding down the crowded highways. Marke tries to set him up, only to have Cage laugh at the attempt. She tell him Gibbons is dead and the mission is to get Pandora’s box back.
