In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin's guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world's most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
|3:08||Nice catch up, and I actually remember the last one too! Bonus.|
|7:32||Don’t you go damaging those books now, you two.|
|14:00||He is ab-so-lutely ruthless.|
|20:16||Oof, that was a rough old sequence. Bleurgh.|
|20:38||Standard, John Wick can kill a man from a thousand paces but can’t hear a car coming to quite literally save his life.|
|23:42||I feel like the horse would be scared of the gunshots.|
|27:33||Jardani is a much more interesting name than John.|
|29:45||“How can you escape from the light? Of course, you can go to the dark. But they are in the dark too.”|
|41:59||“I didn’t kill you, I just shot you.”|
|48:55||Jeez, these ones have got proper stealth mode on.|
|51:28||So that’s Robson and Jerome in a John Wick film.|
|57:07||“I get it.” Of all people, he really does!|
|1:02:37||Halle Berry is kicking some ass.|
|1:10:13||“Never seen a man fight so hard to end up back where he started.”|
|1:13:24||Surely it is not helpful to have an assassin without a finger… for no good reason.|
|1:23:33||Well, we’ve never seen this part of the hotel before. Fancy.|
|1:33:21||I just can’t see them getting out of this alive, but they’ve got to I suppose.|
|1:35:28||Feel like he’s racing through his ammo very quickly.|
|1:38:06||Love it, I want to be like Winston!|
|1:54:34||A parlay usually means it’s not going very well.|
Another good entry in the John Wick franchise, I hadn’t realised how much I’d been looking forward to it until it popped up available to watch. The violence at the beginning was… a bit much for me, if I’m honest. I don’t remember the others being quite so bad - I think because there was so much hand-to-hand and knife stuff. After Wick got his hands on some guns, it was a little better.
Some of this felt a bit unnecessary and weird - like the chopping off the finger thing, which quite apart from making Wick’s life harder, must have been a pain in the ass for the CGI people.
But, Halle Berry was incredible, fighting better than Keanu in places. And even though she was the bad guy, I loved how bad-ass the adjudicator was. Good film and room for more at the end too, hooray!
