I usually let my mom decide what movie to watch for the week. My mom said John Wick as soon as she saw that Keanu Reeves top-bills the movie.
Apart from Matrix, the only movie that I remember Keanu Reeves was in is a karate-type of film which I enjoyed a lot. I had good expectations of John Wick. After the first two scenes, I felt that I was in for a good action-packed adventure. It was also refreshing to see Keanu in a non-Matrix type of film 🙂
John Wick is about a retired hitman who after losing his wife over cancer, got victimised by a Russian syndicate. He lost his mustang and his dog got killed by the thieves. Talk about timing. What do you expect an ex-hitman to do? Revenge, of course!
The movie shows us the journey of John Wick in revenging the death of his dog. John Wick also gave us an idea how assassins work. I never want to know any assassins in real life, but it’s good to know how they function.
Overall, a very entertaining movie. I would think that fans of action movies would love John Wick coz I did 🙂
My Rating for John Wick: 4 out of 5 stars.
