John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum: Directed by Chad Stahelski. With Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne. John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassins’ guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head, he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.
IMHO this is the weakest of the three films, with no one set piece that I look back on fondly, and about 3 of them that I look back on and just don’t like. The motorcycles, the dogs with Halle Berry, the 20 minute long glass room fight, none of those made me feel the same way the sewer fight or mirror room fights did in the second one. I honestly struggle to separate out the first two films because I’ve watched them back to back so many times that they’ve blurred into one movie, but this third one stands alone in being just ok in a series where everything else has been damn near perfect.
There’s a fourth one coming out soon enough, we’ll see if they turn it around!
