The movie is cinematic garbage. I predict it will be used in film schools as a prime example of how not to make a movie. The "human" dialog is reminiscent of Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars Episode I, The Phantom Menace. It's not that there should be humans with a dialog. It's that it shouldn't insult the intelligence of the audience. As with other recent movies in the super-hero realm, the use of CGI is completely over the top. Scene framing is abysmal. Film editing is atrocious in the action scenes, particularly with repeated quick cuts, producing a chaotic, incomprehensible frenzy. Instead of rubber suit monsters beating each other up, it's CGI monsters bashing each other. Welcome to the monster version of the WWE with orchestrated, choreographed fights, in which none of them will ever die, so they can go on to fight again in the next movie, and the next, and the next, and the next one after that. It's an attempt to create a Godzilla Monster Universe patterned after the Marvel Cinematic and DC Extended Universes, the goals of which are mostly CGI characters thrashing each other for two hours, to wash, rinse, and repeat ever year, more often if possible. With the monsters, forget about humans in fancy super-hero suits, just use CGI. Check your brain at the door. It's better if you're brain-dead when watching this human waste landfill fire excuse of a movie. Last, but not least, wear hearing protection if you value your long-term hearing. The damage is a cumulative effect emerging later in life. I'm going to start taking a sound meter to record the sound levels. I'm tired of leaving theaters deafened for several days afterward.
The first John Wick was OK. An interesting, original concept. John Wick 2 turned out to be more of the same, without a dead dog. Change the mass killing spree trigger and off you go. John Wick 3 is more of the same. It reminds me of the Saw and Final Destination franchises in which each successive movie rehashed the same basic plot using different ways to die.There's no real character development. The plot is the minimum needed to propel the movie into another massive killing spree. New York City should be a completely depopulated ghost town now. The concept has become absurd, and the movies repetitious rehashes. If this represents the franchise, it needs to be put out of its misery.
Yet another movie with people wearing rubber suits beating each other up in non-stop fights with CGI overload. Only the completely brain dead watch this crap!
A completely unnecessary remake of a tightly wound and tense thriller by Luc Bresson, especially considering his movie has a superb English dubbed alternative sound track. His "protagonist" brings to it the wild uncontrollable animal intensity this movie completely lacks. By comparison, Bridget Fonda is animated in the action, but lackluster and unconvincing in delivery of the completely wild animal she is supposed to portray. When will Hollywood learn to leave well enough alone and do something creatively original? Yet another piece of plagiarized schlock even if they paid someone for the rights to make it.
Those looking for a "morality play" should look elsewhere. This one is completely over the top, in your face and beating you over the head with its "message". If you want to make a social statement, don't bludgeon people into a bloody pulp with it - which is precisely what this movie does.
