A Man, his dog, and his love for his car. This is John Wick at it’s core.
John Wick is the 2014 action/ thriller written and directed by Chad Stahleski and David Leitch. Both were stunt coordinators for the massively popular ” gun fu” flick, The Matrix.
John Wick stars Keanu Reeves,Willem Defoe, and Alfie Allen.
The film starts out with John Wick, played by Keanu, watching his wife die in a hospital. This utterly destroys John. when he returns home he finds a last gift from his wife. A dog named Daisy with a note saying ” now that Im gone you still need something to love, John.”
Oh yeah something else about this dog her name is Daisy and shes super cute, maybe one of the cutest dogs in a movie. John’s main love in life outside his wife is his muscle car. The car is a 1969 Mustang boss and it’s bad ass. while driving it around some Russians see it and offer to buy it, John refuses.
The Russian assailants lead by Alfie Allen, who we know from Game of Thrones fame as Theon Greyjoy break into John’s house, steal his car, and beat the shit out of him.
Turns out John is a bad ass. John is a man of few words, this suits Keanu best. He is constantly fighting off three or four guys at once. It reminds me of his days as Neo. John Wick reminds me of an old 80’s or 90’s action film. It has comedy,action,and drama.
When anyone speaks Russian in the film the subtitles are in color and scroll along the screen whenever someone says them.
The night club scene is so awesome. It had some of the best gun and fight scenes I have watched recently. Kenau shows off some serious martial arts. All while a thumping bass line from a techno beat is banging in your eardrum the whole time.
over all 8/10. Go watch John Wick now !
