    Man...RR was such a wasted character. She wasn't even as fun as Palicki in the first film. I kinda thought they were gonna do something cool in regards to RR character being deaf, like they were gonna get in some kind of combat situation where her not being able to hear would give her some kind of advantage, but no...we just got a standard villain that really got her ass kicked in no time flat.

    Yeah, I don't think more flashbacks would have done anything but slow the movie down. I mean...he fell in love and that was enough to make him want a normal life. I'd actually say anyone that's ever actually been in genuine love can understand that. Personally, I'd give up anything for my fiancee, but I'm a sappy ass sucker. :D

    Oh I am not wanting a full on drama, just bits and pieces here and there

    Yeah all that build up and she got her ass kicked pretty easily.

    I think a few more flashbacks wouldn't have gone amiss. The whole LF part could have made way for them.

    By "emotion" I didn't just think about the wife and dog. In the first film, the action works because John himself is full of vitrol and his enemies feel real. They're fighting this almost invincible force of nature and their fear (and respect) is palpablle. In part two, John basically has to fight hordes of videogame obstacles for something he doesn't even really care that much about and his enemies are so devoid of personality and charisma you can never even pretend to root for them.

    Yup.

    The second one kinda fell a bit apart in the middle, where it became too much about the 'mythology' instead of John and the story itself, and picked up some steam again in the end. The first one was a very tight action-thriller, the sequel felt a bit like it went all over the place in the middle.

    It's still a good movie which I enjoyed, but less than the original, which really gets me pumped everytime I watch it.

    But man, it did set up great possibilities for the third one, which I hope will be tighter and slightly more focused in its story department.

    As much as I love Chapter 2 this is completely accurate. The first film had a lot more heart and felt more visceral. While Chapter 2, for my money's worth, was a great film and nice way to continue the story, I don't think it did all it could have.

    Either way, I do hope that Chapter 3 fixes those issues because the premise going in is already fantastic. And I want to see how John comes out on top.

    Also, I'm guessing that Common will be returning for Chapter 3?

    That's why Cassian was such a breathe of fresh air when he showed up since he had some motivation beyond "I kill people."

    This is honestly why I'm hoping the TV show gets green lit and sees the light of day. From what I understand, it's purpose will be to delve into that mythology and assassin subculture. That way they can keep it from bogging down the actual movies.

    I think the problem was in the first movie you wanted John to kill the villains because of what happened.

    In the sequel he is just killing random assassin's that we don't know or care about, other than Cassian.

    The problem was though I sympathised more with Cassian in the end as JW had done something terrible to him. I should have been supporting John all the way but wasn't. As above in the first movie you wanted him to kill the villains as they were so horrible.

    Indeed. I was so worried the character would end up being under-used but he was great and had a lot to work with.

    Also hoping Carrie Anne Moss or Hugo Weaving get a role in the film! Even seeing more Laurence Fishburne would be awesome!

    Yassss. Ya know, between Outlander, American Gods (before that dissolves into garbage with the creative shake-ups), Ash vs. The Evil Dead, Counterpart and this, I'm really enjoying Starz's taste in projects these days. They're becoming the most "genre-y" of the premium cable outlets.
