John Wick (10/27/14)

4 John Wick

The second movie I saw this weekend was John Wick with Keanu Reeves and I really really liked it. It’s a great revenge tale, there isn’t much dialogue and the acting isn’t anything to write home about, but if there is one thing that this movie does right it’s the action. John Wick had some of the best fight scenes I’ve ever seen, they were expertly choreographed and shot. The film is non-stop action for the majority of the story and it is really fast paced. Another thing I liked about the movie is the fact that it’s set in a world where every character seems to know something you don’t, which I always enjoy. Keanu’s character is the ultimate badass, he doesn’t say much because he doesn’t have to, he talks with his weapons, and to say the he kicks ass would be putting it lightly. The one thing that I really didn’t like about the movie was the weird style of subtitles that they used. There’s a good amount of dialogue in Russian but for some reason whoever designed the subtitles would emphasize certain words with color which to me just looked weird. The best thing about the movie by far though is the puppy. If you see the movie you’ll know what I’m talking about. Overall, I thought it was a fantastic action movie that did everything it was supposed to do, I was thoroughly entertained. 4/5
