Quick review:
Action-packed sequel again starring Keanu Reeves as the underwold’s most fearsome hitman, this time squaring off against the world’s most adept assassins (including Common) in scenes of highly stylized violence that build to crescendos of comic absurdity. At better than two hours, though, the movie feels over-stretched. With Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne, reunited with his co-star from “The Matrix.”
