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.

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

John Wick is a lean, mean revenger to go with its ice-cold protagonist. It's not perfect, but you'll be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable action movie this year.

On paper, there are many elements in this movie's plot which you have seen before in other films. However, directors David Leitch and Chad Stahlelski still manage to weave an entertaining non-stop action film.

...my truly guilty pleasure of the year.

An ex-hitman and his dog, who has such a sad plot-line I'm not even going to delve into the question of whether you should give someone a pet as a present. The violence is a murderous ballet, in a compelling underground world of self-contained perfection.

This movie is great. It is what it is: just an old-school shoot-'em-up revenge flick. The action is incredible, and Reeves is phenomenal.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

John Wick is a fun action spectacle with a pulse-pounding score that is smart enough to cast an actor against type who is committed completely to this abusive insanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Bloody and effective, but even more than a cathartic bloodbath, it offers laughter and puppies.

One delightful surprise in the film was the creation of the hit man subculture.

John Wick adapts the same gasp and giggle formula, and while far from perfect, its charm, slickness, and invention make it a perfectly moreish popcorn movie.

...it's exciting, the fights are impressively choreographed, direction is very stylish, and it's excellent on a technical level. [Full review in Spanish]

If Keanu Reeves can make a comeback with John Wick, then I hope John Wick can make a case that there is an audience for cheesy action flicks of yesteryear in modern cinema

This revenge film looks slick, stylish and despite its camp story line, keeps you engrossed throughout with a strong impact.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 14, 2017
... the kind of action movie that Hollywood rarely makes anymore: simple, streamlined, with action scenes that rely on physical rather than computer generated elements.
April 3, 2017
It's a rare screenplay that can introduce a compelling action character, create an entire world just beneath our own, and entertainingly destroy it from the inside out all in a hundred minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.0/4.0

John Wick is a slick gangster flick simmering in a suppurating green light, featuring Reeves as a kung-fu assassin pursuing... well, the plot's not really important. What is important is the fact that Reeves is still doing this at 50.
February 24, 2017
It is a wildly entertaining film, from the action scenes, to the sets, to the soundtrack, and in addition, it will likely be known as the comeback role for Keanu Reeves.

...depicts a man who unleashes his mourning on the world.
