JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is a US action thriller sequel in which a hitman is forced out of retirement in order to fulfil a promise to a former associate.
Characters are stabbed and shot during fight scenes, causing large spurts and sprays of blood. In one scene a character uses a pencil to stab several others in the eye, ear or back of the head, resulting in blood sprays and aftermath sight of the bloody pencil, but no clear wound detail. There are also multiple sequences of martial arts style fighting, featuring heavy kicks and punches.
There is a scene of suicide that features bloody images.
There is occasional strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'shit'. There is also use of the rude 'middle finger' gesture.
Other issues include a scene in which a character briefly grabs a man's crotch while patting him down for weapons.
Company chose to reduce bloody injury detail in a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 18 classification was available.
