John Wick’s universe looks like ours, yet exists just beyond it, a liminal place between reality and pulp fantasy, full of color and violence. A shadowy underworld where John’s story plays out like a blood-soaked ballet. Buster Keaton introduces this world to us for a second time in John Wick: Chapter 2. The motorcycle chase from Sherlock Jr. is projected on the side of a skyscraper, and the sounds from John Wick’s own motorcycle chase syncs with it perfectly. Peter Stormare’s Abram Tarasov tells the story of the first movie’s events to his consigliere (Wass Stevens): Abram’s nephew Iosef killed John Wick’s dog and stole his car. His 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is in Abram’s warehouse, and John Wick is coming.
