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.
