John Wick is a retired mafia hitman living the dream, till one sad day his spouse passes away of cancer. Prior to she does though she gifts him with a farewell puppy. Naturally, because this is an action motion picture, you recognize this young puppy is doomed, as well as also the people who bring ruin upon the young puppy are equally doomed.
It actually isn’& rsquo; t brain surgery often. All you require is an understanding “& ldquo; dangerous & rdquo; leading hero, some dumb bad guys working for a higher bad guy, a ton of bullets, as well as there’& rsquo; s your movie. Just such a flick is John Wick
. Keanu Reeves is not my very first pick for an activity star of this type yet he is entirely approximately the task below and also brings Matrix like moves to scenes where he is required to ignore crooks uber promptly to levels that are ridiculous also by dumb action film criteria.
Michael Nyqvist is also reliable as lead bad guy Viggo Tarasov. He gets to invest much time being the overly talkative bad guy, yet his thoughtful shavings include a great depth to the film. Likewise enjoyed numerous various other small players right here such as Willem Dafoe as a badass ally of Wick, Ian Mcshane as the proprietor of a safe residence high-end hotel where gangsters can stay without the fear of being shot at, Adrianne Palicki as a women assassin sent after John Wick, and also my favored covert easter egg of the movie Clarke Peters (the smartest investigative on The Cord) that has a brief little bit as a guest at the resort.
This is a groovy little neo-noir shoot em’ & rsquo; up activity flick. I didn’& rsquo; t locate too much right here to gush over however I liked a lot of the actors, dug the action established items a whole lot, as well as found the movie really simple to view.
If you’& rsquo; re a follower of this kind of flick, this provides on all assumptions with precision.
John Wick gets a three out of 5: GOOD.
