Keanu Reeves is back in full force
“John Wick is a man of focus, commitment and sheer will.”
It’s not very often that I can compare an action film to the original Arnold Films of the 80s and 90s but this is very close. A Highly enjoyable action movie without the “Superhero” element.
The entire appeal of the movie lies in the beautifully choreographed action sequences. A particularly cool scene has Wick, wounded, walking into a crowded place and realizing that everyone has a contract to kill him. There’s even a mirrored-room action sequence which I think is masterfully crafted as you don’t see any of the cinematography or cameras.
It’s nice to see movies where you can turn off your brain and just set the heart to full speed racing.
If you’re in the mood for blood, Wick is your pick.
