Keanu kills it in sequel
John Wick: Chapter 2 (15)
While it doesn’t match the dizzying brilliance of the original, this second chapter is still one of the better modern action flicks you’ll see.
The mysterious world Keanu Reeves’ titular assassin comes from is given greater exposure and the brutality turned up a notch, with Reeves’ ex-Matrix co-star Laurence Fishburne popping up in a fun cameo.
Gold (15) ●●●●●
A barely recognisable Matthew McConaughey heads up a patchy drama loosely based on the 1993 Bre-X mining scandal.
At two hours, it’s too long — Patrick Massett and John Zinman’s script struggling to fill the time.
McConaughey is good, but his performance overpowers everything else.
