Why I'm so hopeful about John Wick 2

 To borrow from Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry, a movie franchise has to know its limitations.  If it does, and if it works within those limitations, a franchise can last for many successful iterations.

If this second trailer for the upcoming second John Wick film is any indication, the folks behind this sequel understand and are working within the limitations of the first film.

The result certainly looks promising, because it appears to focus on what made the first movie so much fun:  non-stop action with quirky characters and a violent Keanu Reeves who never has to change his expression much.

I am so there!
