Boom, boom, bark, karate chop.
Last night I went and checked out the latest film in the now John Wick Trilogy, which we can officially call it that now. If you have seen the other John Wick films, you know exactly what to expect with a 3rd in the series. For me it seem like John Wick basically just popped up and started to claim the throne of a modern day action karate film.
So what’s my quick review of John Wick 3?
Light on Story, heavy on the Action, and predictable fun.
I will say though, if you want to understand what is going on in this movie? You really need to see the first 2 movies. It picks up RIGHT after the 2nd film and if you go into this movie without any idea of who the character is? You’re gonna wonder what the hell is going on.
The movie is 100% action packed to the brim, like you would expect in a John Wick film? Keanu Reeves is fantastic, and you could tell he went through a LOT of training to prepare for this role. Halle Berry shows up in the film, but I do get the idea that she is pretty much a throw away character…however her action scene was well placed and enjoyable. The character as a whole though just kinda seemed….there? You get my drift?
Like any popular movie today, there is a twist the sets up to usher in the very recently announced John Wick 4, which is set to hit theaters in 2021.
If you like the John Wick movies, this is the natural progression of the series. You know exactly what you are getting and you won’t be disappointed. If you’re new to the series…you MUST watch the first 2 films…
