John Wick (2014) Film Review

John-Wick-Poster

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) used to be a hitman, but now he retired for a quiet life with his wife. Unfortunately, she became ill and passed away, but left him with a dog for company. Then this spoilt gangster brat who wants John Wick’s very nice car breaks in, beats him up and kills the dog. This sends John Wick over the edge and he goes out and kills all the bad guys.

There really is very little story to this. It is just all about bad guys and blood, shooting, killing, killing, killing. And Keanu Reeves is still just such a marvellous action hero. He can walk slow and shoot like the best of them. It is very beautifully shot, and really just wonderfully violent.
