  • Reeves and Dacascos's brutal, climactic sparring session definitely leaves us wanting more, not to mention wondering about a potential Oscars sound editing category for shattering glass.

  • Choreography is all that's on offer here. The increasingly convoluted fight scenes turn into lifeless spectacle in this ugly franchise.

  • Superior exercises in action-movie formalism, the John Wick movies evoke everything from Fritz Lang's silent thrillers to Gene Kelly's musicals...

  • It's rather like when Bond films went from Sean Connery to Roger Moore. Plenty of people will find this copacetic. A few will grouse about what's been lost: a touch of the real amid the merely fantastic.

  • [I]t's a fun, entertaining romp that knows it's ridiculous from the moment that Wick takes out a towering 7-footer (the Philadelphia 76ers' Boban Marjanović) by beating him to death in a library with a book.

  • While "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum" is an easy movie to recommend, it must be added that it's a hard movie to love.

Audience Reviews for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    Strong contender for best John Wick movie to date. And that ain't faint praise. I've been strong invested in the franchise ever since it was first announced John Wick would be a playable character in Payday 2. Then when I actually watched that first movie? Forget about it. I fuckin' love this guy. And now, here we are with a trilogy cappin' Parabellum. Strength to strength to goddamn strength.

    May be a slight step from the previous entries to the Wick universe, but undeniably fun. Keep em coming.

    Blown away. I watched John Wick 3: Parabellum out of curiosity, having missed JW1 and JW2. Now I understand why this is becoming a cult film. Keanu Reeves plays the role to perfection, and even I am in awe. One thing that struck me was that this Neo-noir genre is still very much in vogue. Also, the level of martial arts choreography and stunt work has developed to an impressive level, that not only have they caught up with the Hong Kong (East Asian) martial arts stunts, but actually surpassed it. The stunt work was simply breathtaking. My main complaint is the level of violence! Entertainment-wise, it was even better than say, Mission Impossible or Jason Bourne or James Bond series. The direction for JW3 is top notch, and I am looking forward to JW4.

    Anybody who goes to these films and then criticizes the format (Augh, too much violence; no plot; one-dimensional characters!) is just embarrassing themselves. That said, it opens with a great bang but the middle sequence in Morocco felt baggy and unnecessary: third act back at the Continental wrapped it up in style. Fun cameos from Bronn and Angelica Huston but Halle and her dogs felt a bit extraneous and the fight sequences felt more heavily edited to conceal weaknesses. Dacascos a huge stand-out, as martially skilled (and gorgeous) as ever. Huge fun for those that like this sort of thing.
