Action movie in high style.
One of the first action films to really break the industry out of the Paul Greengrass era of awful quick cuts and shaky cam, John Wick is a hyperviolent action thriller with a simple premise executed to the highest level. It features terrific fight choreography and a real flare for the stylish, with Keanu Reeves giving a tone perfect performance. He hits that sweet spot of playing it straight while fully embracing the sillier aspects of the material.
John Wick is a no-questions-asked action thriller that keeps the audience wanting more.
Action-porn cannot begin to describe this movie. Lots of gunplay and dead unnamed Russian thugs. It's a fun watch for those who enjoy the genre.
The storyline was a bit dull. Someone kills John Wick's dog and he goes out for revenge. The end. Some of the dialogue seemed forced or shallow.
One area this film did do well in is how Keanu did all his own stunts. That's one reason why this film became iconic in its genre.
3.5/5. Though the film was a fun watch, the shallowness of the story didn't make it memorable to me. A 4/5 on a good day.
I'm proud to say that John Wick is the Rambo of our generation
What a way to get to know John Wick...
John wick is an overall, decent movie. Keanu Reeves carried the whole movie from start to finish by being believable, as a stoic, stolid former assassin. William Defoe is perfect as his friend who helps keep Wick alive, although he was supposed to kill him. The odd team of professional assassin cleanup crew, is quirky, but is comic in a dark, underbelly way and is delightful. This is an enjoyable movie, and I like at the end, John Wick breaks into an animal shelter to get medical supplies to staple himself up, and he leaves with a pit bull to take home, which was to be euthanized the following day. Keanu Reeves is a big animal lover, and it was a nice touch.
Amazing stunts, action, characters and story, John wick is mindblowing in many ways but feels short to introduce us to the John wick world.
If someone killed my dog I would also go on an murderous rampage. Relatable. Better stoned.
kickass action movie plus great drama.Keanu Reeves delivers an excellent performance.
It's simple, the director promess to give you action and style, and it gives you one of the most enjoyable movies of the genre in years!
