Never before in the annals of cinema has there been an action franchise quite like this series of Keanu Reeves awesomeness. Not even his Matrix films come close to the pure, brutal, visceral joy that is a John Wick movie.
Wanna get up to speed on this latest entry before we continue? Here yah go:
This third entry -- and there's no way it's a trilogy. Not with THAT ending -- is pure action joy from start to finish. It outdoes even The Raid movies for perfectly choreographed cinematic violence and bloodshed.
Under Chad Stahelski's expert direction, this is as close to a mainstream art film as we're ever likely to see. Think an 80s or 90s graphic novel brought to vibrant life, and you get the idea. Chapter 3 is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for your bloodlust.
And it has the most profound use of books, dogs and even horses in an action movie as we're ever gonna get.
I love these films, I love this movie. John Wick is Reeves' magnum opus, and I hope we get a lot more of him. A Good.
