So, first things first, here is the summary of John Wick as per IMDB:
Legendary assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retired from his violent career after marrying the love of his life. Her sudden death leaves John in deep mourning. When sadistic mobster Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) and his thugs steal John’s prized car and kill the puppy that was a last gift from his wife, John unleashes the remorseless killing machine within and seeks vengeance. Meanwhile, Iosef’s father (Michael Nyqvist) — John’s former colleague — puts a huge bounty on John’s head.
I stumbled upon this movie last month and wanted to watch it. Yesterday I got to know that “John Wick” got released on iTunes and I decided to give it a go. I am personally not a very big fan of Keanu Reaves but I do feel he is highly underrated! I don’t get it why people hate him so much. Sure, he have had his bad share of movies but he did some great ones too, like, The Matrix Trilogy, Speed, Constantine, Devil’s Advocate etc.
So, after watching the Trailer for the movie, I was pretty sure it is going to be one Hard-hitting, brutal and gory genre of movie. Here’s the trailer for John Wick, just in case:
Movie starts off really quickly and gets to pure hardcore action in no time. I personally enjoyed the movie very much, although it got a bit monotonous in between but it delivers on promises of a ride packed with a lot of adrenaline. Background music (basically dubstep and techno) is superb in some fighting scenes. Keanu Reaves has acted like a really badass guy in the movie. His overall looks gets to gel pretty well with the character.
Well, this film was meant to be a stylish and action packed. That’s just what it is. Definitely marks the return of Keanu Reeves to the action genre. If you want to see pure action and comeback attempt for Neo, this is watch you should watch.
