John Wick is an excellent revenge action movie that raises the bar with its excellent lighting, cinematography, and martial arts displays from Keanu.
Mr Wick spends the rest of the film getting even with a mob boss for the actions of his son who killed his dog and stole his car. As far as the plot goes, its pretty simple but there is a lot of depth to the world.
Reeves displays a decent amount of acting range here, but his real talent is bringing bad guys down one headshot at a time. Its glorious to see him smack a guy over the head, hold him down while reloading, and then take him out.
The best thing about this film is the lack of shaky cam– you can see all the action happening clearly. This is made possible by the dedication of the actors in their martial arts training.
Support films like this, they are a rare breed these days!
I don’t get why this movie has such good reviews. It simple and quite uninteresting. Lots of actions and well known faces (many from TV series), but nothing else. The same old brainless plot to justify tons of bullets.
The only word that keeps coming back to mind when reviewing this movie is: exhilarating. The fun factor this amazing action film has is probably the highest of any movie this year. I could not stop myself from having a blast!
First and foremost, being also the first thing you notice, “John Wick” is self-conscious of what it is and doesn’t, for not even one second, take itself more seriously than it should. Fortunately this doesn’t shut out the place for character connection and empathy. People often think the two of these things exclude themselves, but that is not what I think and this movie is proof of it. It has such a genuine sense of fun and humor, so much so that you are often laughing WITH (not AT) the movie at the preposterousness of everything and at the same time feeling genuine tension for the characters you’re rooting for. I know it sounds ridiculous, but every single f***ing kill by John Wick feels exciting and liberating, it was incredible how much I was rooting for him. To this contributes some stunning, fast-and-furious level action scenes that benefit amazingly by the practicality involved. Hats off to the director and the special effects guys for staging such a flawless string of adrenaline-pumping scenes, in particular to the director for the highly energetically stylish direction that never feels as a gimmick or out of place, yet instead makes everything all the more enjoyable. Furthermore this is one of the few movies in which sound actually stood out and contributed in making the film a great success. Keanu Reeves is perfect for the role and brings to the screen so much charisma I could not help but root for the guy. He is surrounded by a great cast too that has very fun moments on their own. If all of this wasn’t enough, “John Wick” has some great original ideas and plays with them in the best way possible.
Despite having a blast in the theater and wanting to maybe see this movie again in a year or so, it isn’t original, stylish or innovative enough to say: “we’ve seen this plot before, but not quite done this way”. Yes it has its brilliance, but it is kind of cheesy, even if in a good way, and predictable. It doesn’t rank up to a higher standard of action movie because of its straight-forwardness. It does have some stakes, but all in all there isn’t really an overwhelming set piece or twist that makes it highly remarkable.
Obviously, that is not what it’s aiming for and because of that I could recommend this movie to anybody, just go and have the best action entertainment fun in the theater!
Manly action film
Lesson learned: don’t get on retired legendary hit-man John Wick’s bad side. In the film of the same name, he goes back into action shooting up bad guys in a city where it seems that the cops have all simultaneously taken a vacation. Played by surprisingly youthful quinquagenarian Keanu Reeves, John Wick’s style of shooting baddies is reminiscent of my days playing Whac-A-Mole, Duck Hunt, or any of those arcade games with the plastic guns. Wick is a vengeant superman, and this is the basis of the entire movie. Although he doesn’t have a clear weakness that can be exploited like most heroes, Wick does get into enough trouble for the audience to be sincerely worried about him.
If you’re planning on seeing John Wick because you like movies with clever or meaningful story lines, then you’re going to be disappointed. If you are looking for raw well- choreographed action and machismo, then look no further. House Greyjoy’s Alfie Allen stands out as villainous Russian mafia brat Iosef Tarasov, and Michael Nyqvist (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays Viggo, his mob boss father. Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe, Ian McShane and Dean Winters round out a strong supporting cast.
Overall, I enjoyed John Wick as a pure action film. It doesn’t have a storyline like The Matrix or Speed, but it was visually entertaining and the simplicity of the story allowed for appreciation of the action. This movie is manly and primitive, and proves that at the age of 50, Keanu Reeves can still mix it up as an action star.
