GOOD IN RPX, BUT SADLY, NO TEE SHIRT.

Needless to say, John Wick is fun. It serves as a great return to the action genre for Keanu Reeves. If Keanu Reeves says more than twenty words in the movie, I’d be surprised, but the action was so well choreographed, I doubt many people will care. The acting was as good as it gets in the genre of “shoot first, talk never movies” and once again, every fight scene was fun. Some honorable mentions are Willem Dafoe was great as the sniper, Marcus. Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Dean Winters, and Adrianne Palicki were all strong as villains. The film is about an ex-hitman, John Wick (Reeves), John’s wife recently died from disease and she gives him a puppy as her last gift. John encounters these men who want to buy his car, John refuses. Than night, the men invade his home, beat John to a pulp, take the car, and kill the puppy. John is mad, he wants revenge. The villains didn’t know who they did this to, John Wick, the man you’d send to kill the Boogeyman. From then on out, it’s basically John versus the entire agency that he used to work for. If it wasn’t obvious, let me point this out, John Wick is a guy movie, through-and-through. So, if you love action (some of the best action I’ve seen), John Wick is for you.
