Directed by Chad Stahelski. With Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne. Super-assassin John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin’s guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head – he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.
I rewatched the first two movies before going to this one, I feel like that might have been a mistake though. Perhaps it was because I had a couple $10 beers in the movie theater’s bar beforehand, but I wasn’t especially impressed with this film. It wasn’t as great as the first one, but honestly, what could be as good as that film. I think my main complain is that most of the fight scenes here were just too long and too improbable for a franchise that has a foundation of realistic and grounded action.
