John Wick Film Review (2014) – Avenging Dog’s Death

John Wick Film Review (2014) – Avenging Dog’s Death

John Wick marks a return of Keanu Reeves into action movie since his absence from the genre for some time. Also, the directors, Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, of which the latter has directed other famous action films such as Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde. Let’s get down below for John Wick film review, and find out if it’s perhaps the Keanu that you love better than his matrix self!

 

Premise

As I said, the plotline is one of the most basic I have ever seen. Basically, a Russian Boss’s son ambushes John’s house and kills his puppy, which is the last gift from her deceased wife. So John gets angry and determines to kill those that did these to him. That’s it! It’s a really simplistic plot of revenge that only includes some subplots of the mafia world. Question is…can he revenge his pet?

Review

This a movie that puts a simple plot into an enjoyable action thriller. We are not bombarded with story development and slow pacing. Rather, we will be treated to some cool action choreography, guns violence the style of Keanu as a hitman.

But the meat is in the action. Within 10 minutes into the film, John has already dealt the killing blow to the bad guys. The film picks up the pace immediately after this phase and does not stop. You will literally be shown many many scenes that involve guns, blood and some martial arts, though not similar to The Matrix, Keanu Reeves sure executes them in his own way. Character development wise, sadly, is almost untouched and they just keep introducing new characters along the way. There are some great choreographed scenes that make this film a badass film to watch. The music fits the action theme and you will be blown away at how cool John Wick is because of his wickedness!

Dayum!
Action, blood and revenge in a sweet package
John Wick is for those that want to watch plenty of action, great choreography and Keanu Reeves in his revenge journey. If you fancy character development or a complex story, this is not your cup of tea. However, if gun violence and hitman getting revenge is one of your favourites, then this movie will appeal just for you.
