      I watched the movie with my parents and funny enough they said that the movie series is starting to look like the Rambo series, repeating most of the exact same thing. John has something happen to him, he kicks ass, bad guys get asses handed to them, secret stuff happens in background, John continues ass kicking, more bad guys come, secret meetings, John kicks more ass, makes it to some important location, movie ends on cliff hanger.

      He Kills guys with horses and you find it goofy that he walks in the desert. Priorities I guess... ?

      The story isn't really that complicated. "The Table" is obviously being corrupted and thus "The Rules" are being used against those who still have morals and integrity. So a 4th Wick movie is gonna be against that corrupted council.
      The whole Universe is about an Assassin who got out of that assassin guild and had a wife. But circumstance brought him right back into the fold. Once back in, One corrupt member of The Table wanted to get more control over that council by getting rid of another who sat on that council. But obviously Wick killed that guy by the end of the 2nd movie. And cause that catch 22 of the second movie, that brings us to this one. Where the clear hatred of such emotionless rules is boiling over. Showing a clear problem of the loopholes set within them and how said loopholes cause nothing but problems for all except those on top.
      Also, you might want to do a series of reviews on the many seasons of Gotham. (TV show.) You can probly find a online site to binge them all.

      0:20 - 0:46 Unlike the Taken Trilogy. I mean, the first one you'll love, but the second and third you'll either find "Eh." or "Egh!"

    I liked the intrigue of the first movie. I liked the way they filmed him hiding in the background in the bath house in the first movie and noone knew he was even there. The second movie the way he appeared out of nowhere in the mirror to kill Giana. There was more of a mystery and intrigue in the first 2 movies including a sexiness that kind of gets lost in the third.

    The action got stale for me in chapter 2. This one pushed it much further. Let’s just say this series is all about the stuns, not enough story. John’s story is getting convoluted quickly even as little as has been revealed. I wanted them to wrap it up in the third one, but nope!

    I had the same thought in the beginning when Wick was running and fighting his way through New York City that this might be the ‘Fury Road’ of Kung Fu movies. I would have liked the movie to have taken that route instead. I was hoping this movie would bring John Wick to a close. I was hoping for a more well rounded trilogy to John Wick that had a strong beginning, middle and end that just kept up that running faster and faster pace until the end, but like you said that pace slowed down in the middle of John Wick 3 and now that expectation and hope for these movies is ruined for me personally.

    I think what both of the sequels suffer from is -
    1) John Wick’s lack of agency. He’s forced again and again into tight situations instead of taking his own innovative, which I think just leads to a better character. He might be responding to the situation, but let him respond on his terms
    2) They need more silent, efficient kills like in the spa scene. It’s all laud in your face brawls which is fine for a normal action hero but almost makes me forget he’s an assassin
    I still love them, but man, I predict that first one will go down as a classic and will grow in critical appreciation the way Blade Runner or The Shining did overtime

    Not that you should have liked The Matrix all that much, but you’re surprised he can do amazing stunts??

  • The Guy With No Channel

    The second one is still my favorite so far, but I actually loved the somewhat zaniness that they added to the third one (like John riding a horse in the city while fighting motorcyclists). I look forward to seeing what they do with the next one.

    This movie felt like a Horror Movie in the best way possible. The audience I saw it with was half-full, but the reactions were hilarious. Mainly during the knife-throwing scene in the Armory. All I heard around me was "Ooooh! haha"..."DAMN!"..."Oooh!" (a couple people)...(2 seconds later)" "OOOOOH!!!" (entire audience).

    Not every crowd will be like that, I saw it again and with a smaller crowd and I was the only 1 laughing at the part where the friendly Doctor tells John Wick to shoot him (twice).. even the second time I thought it was funny, but I was the only 1 laughing. The 1st time, people were laughing harder than me and I could barely hear the movie.... also less "OOOOOHs"

    It's just refreshing to see a good R-RATED Action Trilogy where every movie so far is well-shot and has amazing fight choreography. Even the first shot in this movie with the camera circling around the Statue of Liberty to show where John Wick is was a beautiful shot... so even the Establishing Shots in these movies are beautiful.

    ...also John Wick getting in that classic Taxi in the heavy rain in NYC while all the other Taxis were modern... it's details like that which makes it feel like a Modern Noire.

    As much as I really enjoyed John Wick 3, Asia Kate Dillon was probably the worst part of the movie.
    She shows up and is like a robot, she has no personality and is just boring to listen to. Her overall character isn’t interesting and what she talks about isn’t very interesting.

    The title opening was awful, the first 20 minutes were fantastic, the fight scenes start out great and kinda degrade overtime, the world doesn't really make sense since the rules established in the second aren't the same in the third, and the ending is REALLY FUCKING STUPID

    Action-wise the movie was badass. No arguing here. 10/10
    But the script and the dialogs... were godawful. Fucking 4-year old could have added more depth.
    Just a few of the remarkable quotes from John Wick as an example:
    - No.
    - I don't know.
    - No you won't.
    - Yes. (movie ends on this)
    p.s. May I add that this whole Belorussian Giordano Ivanovich bullshit was almost enough to turn this film into comedy?

    To be honest, I'm kind of afraid of what they are going to do for Chapter 4. The action the pulled of for the other movies, especially Chapter 3, were amazing! It just makes me question what they're going to do for Chapter 4. If they do too little, then the action is stagnate or weak, but if they go too far, it gets rid of the charm that is John Wick, and it'll just be like what happened to Fast and Furious, where they went from driving cars to driving tanks and crap, which ruined the series for me.
    Also, I kind of wish the series will end at Chapter 4. I don't really wanna see John Wick go on to make 10 part movies, despite how amazing these movies really are. I mean, I wouldn't mind seeing spinoffs like with Halle Berry and her dogs, or other side assassin's, but the John Wick series shouldn't be milked, as that would ruin the name of John Wick aswell as Keanu Reeves as a whole.
    But anyways, I'm glad to see Keanu get the trilogy he truly deserved. Matrix kinda is a mess but at least John Wick made up for it greatly! But hey, maybe a Bill and Ted complete trilogy can outshine John Wick and the Matrix? 😂 (jk)

    I had a bit of trouble taking the main villain seriously because of the way she talked. Her tone and inflection were just odd like the best way I can describe it is "investigative journalist voice" and I know she was an inquisitor for the High Table but I kept expecting her to turn to the camera after talking to the characters and say "I'm (insert name here) for channel six news."

    John wick 4 should try and bring it back down to earth. Have the ultimate bad guy be an assassin himself, it would make for a really good end fight. Maybe make the villain a really good sniper.

      @James Bond well, Dafoe was a very talented sniper, and he only "helped" Wick because Dafoe wanted the kill himself

    1rst one is good, 2nd one gets tiresome (like this movie made headshots feel boring, rivalry with common is cool tho), 3rd one is completely boring. The third john wick is a master class in why you need to build tension before a fight and have characters you care about. Your plot cant just be 2 hours of fighting because it gets old quick. The second movie suffered from this too, but not nearly as bad. For everyone who claims that its the "lore" of the movie thats the real draw, i would argue there is no lore. There is a bunch of vague crap, silly table metaphors and EVERYONE everywhere is an assassin. The entire population of every city are assassins. Felt like that in the second movie to to be fair, but i thought that was silly there too.

    Spoilers (not that it matters because if your reading this you most likely have seen the movie already)

    I was not a fan of several of the scenes near the end after he goes around killing people with the shot gun. First, The scene where he was fighting the two ninjas felt WAY too goofy for a John Wick movie. Second, they really overused the shot of someone being there only for another person to turn around and they disappeared. Lastly, while I get John survives a lot of stuff that he probably shouldn't, but the scene where he is thrown off the roof and is bouncing around between the two buildings like a cartoon character was a little too ridiculous for me.

    Other than that I really enjoyed the movie, especially the fight scenes with the dogs and the scene where he was going around in the hotel with the shotgun.

    • Justin Norman
      Justin Norman 6 months ago

      The disappearing tropes in that last fight was on purpose to show Reeves can do what that sushi guy can do, but better. Hence why Reeves says that he and the other guy are not the same.
      I'm not sure on the true physics of falling off a building and bounce around, but it did seem a bit strange to me. Maybe I'm wrong
