John Wick

This is a movie review of the same name and may contain spoilers so look away just in case I become your kill joy. John Wick is a franchise which had a lot of reasons going for it such as Keanu Reeves reprising his role as the protagonist, recent sequel available on Netflix and as far as action flicks go, this was as good as it gets. This movie had a budget of forty million dollars and made to close to four times the amount post it’s release worldwide and definitely left me asking for more.

John Wick Chapter 2

I confess that I didn’t watch the first installment but my colleague had already given me a lowdown about the hype and following that the movie had generated since it’s release the first time. Story is all about being reactive than being active or in other words, vengeance is it’s sole pillar on which it stands but mix other ingredients like fast cars, tailored suits, guns, underworld, an emotional angle and you are truly absorbed in the deadly concoction. John Wick is a cross between James Bond and the Godfather in terms of characterization and Keanu Reeves more than lives up to it. This is the franchise that would be identified with him for years to come similar to what John Rambo for Sylvester Stallone and Terminator for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Keep logic aside and enjoy the movie for all it’s worth. Must watch.
