First off, no dogs were murdered this time around. And while various Russian goons get killed in the opening bit (where John goes to get his car back) the vast majority of dead goons this time around are Camorra. Who are part of some kind of High Table of Crime I guess? Anyway John wants to re-retire after the first movies blood letting (after getting back his car) but he can't because reasons. Murdery reasons. In addition to all the shooting, punching and stabbing we get more Secret World of Crime world building with more on the Continental Hotels for Assassins and their support businesses. Also Laurence Fishburne as the Beggar King of New York. Fun enough killspree action movie. And again no dead puppies this time around.
