      John Wick Reviews

      Prev Next

      As you would expect from former stunt coordinators, the action scenes are dynamic and that might be enough, but the emotional thread that motivates Chapter One is exceptionally constructed, justifying much of the rage and murder.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 2, 2023

      Even with the CGI taken out, the trade of po-faced filler for action righteousness is still in effect.

      Full Review | Jan 24, 2023

      It’s definitely a movie made for a particular audience, and if wall-to-wall action and stylized violence isn’t your cup of tea, neither is “John Wick”.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Aug 22, 2022

      For all of its familiar plot elements, the movie knows when to step back, let Keanu do his thing, and watch the impressive fight and gunplay choreography throughout.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Jul 18, 2022

      The directors find new ways to stage and frame these deadly encounters in a way that constantly feels fresh and exciting.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Aug 10, 2021

      The original John Wick showed beloved icon Keanu Reeves still had plenty of action in him post-Matrix.

      Wick is so tough he doesn't bother to take off his blood-soaked shirt when he starts his quest for vengeance and the movie is just as uncompromising.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Feb 2, 2021

      Rock music, cold stares, and plenty of bullets emphasize Wick's proficiency, as the plot needs all the help it can get to impart the coolness it desperately wants to exhibit.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Dec 4, 2020

      For a dour narrative about death, loss, and violence, it's surprisingly good natured.

      Full Review | Original Score: A | Jul 7, 2020

      Just when i thought that Keanu Reeves had retired from the action genre, he appears back and in revenge mode with the amazing John Wick. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Jun 26, 2020

      John Wick is the slick, empty, cruel hero the age of Trump deserves - but hey, at least he likes dogs!

      Full Review | Nov 22, 2019

      Occasionally ridiculous, it is action-packed, stylish and a return to form for Mr Reeves.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Nov 19, 2019

      The script defines an amazing microcosm that surrounds the profession of the protagonist. [Full Review in Spanish]

      Simply put, John Wick is probably one of the best action movies in a decade. From an efficient story to incredible fight sequences and an action start that just doesn't seem to quite, John Wick is as close to perfect as I've ever seen.

      Full Review | Original Score: 9/10 | Aug 7, 2019

      Directed by long-time stuntmen David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, it is exactly the sort of movie you would expect from long-time stuntmen: brutal, close-up fighting, nearly nonstop gunplay and the slightest story legally allowed.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jul 30, 2019

      Why does it work? That's probably a better question. On paper, this movie falls somewhere between Commando and Taken in terms of getting from Point A to Point B, but in execution, John Wick just feels like a special journey.

      Full Review | Original Score: 8/10 | Jul 16, 2019

      Fast, fun, and with care taken on elements outside of the requisite action sequences, it's a film that succeeds in generally conquering the fatigue of its own familiarity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jul 9, 2019

      John Wick is the sort of mindless movie that you get when you give two long-time stunt men (David Leitch and Chad Stahelski) the directorial reins.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | May 17, 2019

      Once the wick is lit (pun, unfortunately, intended), the candle of vengeance burns for the entirety of the film.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | May 12, 2019

      A perfectly assembled cast and confident direction turn this B-movie thriller into an instant classic.
