John Wick 2 UK Age Rating Set as 15, Warner Bros. Cuts Blood to Secure Lower Rating

John Wick 2 UK Age Rating Set as 15Keanu Reeves’ return to action territory in John Wick was a lot of fun. The stunts were awesome, the visuals felt fresh, and it had been ages since we’d seen Reeves do anything like that. So it’s not surprising that John Wick Chapter 2 is tracking above and beyond the original film, especially since it came out of nowhere. In the States, both films are Rated R.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ReviewWhere The Force Awakens erred way too much on the side of nostalgia, Gareth Edwards’ superb Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cuts a much stronger line between old and new. For my money, it’s the best Star Wars movie yet. Granted, this is coming from someone who isn’t a particularly big fan of the franchise.
