So here’s a surprise. John Wick is a fantastic movie.
It’s a clear sighted genre movie that hits all the beats it needs to hit whilst offering up enough discord, oddness and sad Keanu to lift it up to something quite special. At times almost Point Blank (1967) special. It’s one of those movies where scenes and moments jump into your head days after watching it when you are least expecting it.
What I like most is the simplicity. The plotting is A – B – C with nothing needless and the action is clear. Post-Bourne, the simple notion that the viewer should be able to see what is happening, place people in the space of a scene and follow movement is a revelation.
One thought on “John Wick (2014)”
Hi, as a huuuge fan of Keanu Reeves I couldn’t wait for this movie to come out. And then when I watched it I was mind blown. I mean, yeah it’s still an “action movie”, but OH MY GOD it’s is a GOOD action move. With Keanu Reeves in it. It’s not washed up, quite fresh if I may say. Music is awesome, plot is great, sometimes funny. In conclusion, great movie, great entertainment and Keanu Reeves at his finest. Anyway, I highly recommend this, especially for K.R. fans (How many times did I write his name? :D) ?
