Highly recommend if you like action; revenge films; unlikely heroes; anti-heroes...
If you like, wronged American beats the bejeezus out of Russian mobsters type of movies, you'll love this.
With a believable and capable cast this movie is one I'm sure I'll watch over again and again.
Now for the reason why I gave this one star the blu-ray DRM (digital rights management) is utter crap. I bought a legit copy of the movie. I have a legit blu-ray drive in my computer, with legit software to play it. Bit it would not play it at all. I had to do a crap load of stuff to get it to play, and I was at the point I was ripping out my hair.
So if you are getting this to play on your computer be warned, it can be a freaking headache to get it going, and you will have to resort of "other methods" just to get your legally bought movie to play on your legally bought hardware, with your legally bought software.
No idea if this works on stand alone blu-ray players, I don't have one to test.
So please MPAA STOP WITH THE DRM CRAP, it doesn't actually stop pirates, it only hurts paying customers who then start reconsidering buying stuff.
John Wick is the first film by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, who were stuntmen and stunt coordinators on movies like The Matrix trilogy, 300 and V for Vendetta.
And it stars Keanu Reeves, whose track record as of late has been… shaky.
So, when I saw the trailers for this movie, as good as they were, I wasn’t expecting much.
John Wick is a man who just lost his wife and is delivered a dog he finds out his wife left him to give him something to love.
Then one night thieves break into his house, beat John to a pulp, steal his car… and kill his dog.
One of the thieves is told by his crime boss father that John Wick is actually one of the most feared hitmen alive. “And you just killed his dog.”
This movie blew me away. I was expecting an okay action movie, maybe something on par with Taken. John Wick is seriously one of the best action films I’ve seen in years. Probably the best since Skyfall, anyway.
The plot of this movie is just thinly veiled excuse for the series of spectacular action scenes in the film. It reminds me of the best action movies of days past. Like the Arnie movie, Commando.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, they kidnapped his daughter. Now start shooting people.
The action in this movie is first rate. There’s a scene where John takes on a group of assassins that come to his home. A scene where John tackles with a woman who’s come to kill him in his hotel room.
My personal favorite where John goes on the offensive and assaults a nightclub to find the guy who killed his dog. Also not a car chase, really, but one shootout where John never gets out of his car.Read more ›
Great action, great music. We were on the edge of our seat until the very end. And yes, we did shed a tear at some point (won't mention it, to not spoil things, but my friend was very upset with a particular event)
`Yeah. It was a really cute dog.'
`He seemed angrier about the car.'
`It was a nice car.'
'John Wick' is another rousing entry in the ever-expanding action sub-genre known as `You know you done f**k*d up, now, don'tcha?' To get more specific, there's actually a few basic templates; there's the `Taken' scenario, where the protagonist is a former special ops badass turned bodyguard to the stars, and someone kidnaps his daughter, or kills his girl. Then there's the `Red' variation, where the hero is a former secret agent badass, who has been living quietly in retirement, until someone in the agency learns of his existence, labels him an unacceptable liability who knows way too much, and gives the order to terminate with mild prejudice. The scenario that `John Wick' shares with quite a few films, including `The Professional', by Luc Besson, and David Cronenberg's `A History of Violence', is a classic. It always involves a notoriously gifted hitman who has retired, gone into hiding, or been betrayed by his employer. He might be an emotionally stunted killer who finally makes a human connection - as in `The Professional' - or a one-time gangster who disappeared and made a new life for himself, forced to return to his violent ways to protect his family - as in `A History of Violence'.
In `John Wick', Keanu Reeves plays a killer of prodigious ability who retired when he met the love of his life. When she succumbs to a sudden illness, Wick is grief-stricken. After the funeral, a posthumous delivery from his wife arrives. It's an adorable beagle puppy, and the accompanying card from the woman he just buried says she doesn't want him to forget how to love. Sniff.Read more ›
