Just when you have all but given up hope for Keanu Reeves... there comes the hyper-stylised revenge movie John Wick. And you remember what you loved about him in the first place.

A pretty humourless and violent film, which grinds on and on with more and more gleaming black SUVs getting trashed.

It's not perfect. But it is special, especially for a mid-budget Hollywood action drama, and it has stuck firmly in my mind since that late-night screening last Friday.

Stahelski and Leitch, both former stunt men, unsurprisingly tackle action sequences with glee... but the quieter scenes are more sophisticated, incorporating a sense of fantasy and visual splendor that almost makes the wafer-thin plot feel fresh.

Yet, for all the film's stylishness and a body count worthy of a small civil war, there's no getting around the fact that stiff, stoic Reeves -- who is capable of a few funny, deadpan lines -- isn't a particularly compelling lead action figure.

Stylishly violent and not much else.

Co-directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, who both come from a stunt background, keep the action relentless, although it builds to a kind of monotony in the latter stages.

Action movies are about movement, and John Wick pursues that goal with remorseless verve.

John Wick feels like action manna for its cleanly designed gun-fu sequences... but the revenge plotting is deeply dopey and we shouldn't have to choose one or the other.

John Wick is a rousing action thriller of the sort rarely encountered in theaters these days.
October 24, 2014
John Wick is the kind of fired-up, ferocious B-movie fun some of us can't get enough of.
October 24, 2014
This is not an action movie in the Michael Bay lineage; rather than an escalating series of explosions, John Wick offers a slow burn, sizzling in a manner true to its hero's surname.

Mostly it's Keanu playing bang-bang. If that sounds great, go see the movie. If not, congratulations on aspiring to better things.

While the body count grows numbing and repetitive, "John Wick" actually is more compelling in the aesthetically heightened, specifically detailed world it depicts.
October 24, 2014
It's a beautiful coffee-table action movie.
October 24, 2014
It's a B movie made with A-student love for the relentless thrill of bodies in brutal motion.
October 24, 2014
This is a film where every human being is a sack of meat waiting to be tenderized.
October 24, 2014
This movie is so over the top, you can't track it on radar.
October 24, 2014
It gets old fast.

Director Chad Stahelski handles the frenzied fusillade with flair. The action scenes in John Wick, while brutal, are also rather breathtaking.
