John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★★½

Well here we are at Chapter 3 and for the time being I'm gonna say that this is the best one, the first 30 minutes alone are some of the best action put to film full stop and that's just the beginning. However it's not without one singular issue. 

There's The Elder that John goes to look for who's honestly kinda lame, like they could have got anyone else to play the role that's in someways cool and they just got some random guy. I wouldn't mind so much if this wasn't mean to be some super important person from this universe, the man has zero stage presence and looks bored most of the time. These movies don't seem to have that problem with all the other characters, so I don't know what happened here. 

This is the first of the John Wick movies where I can say the visuals is gorgeous to look at, like the other two aren't to shabby either don't get me wrong. But this time around the cinematography is vibrant and alive as we've never seen it before, several of these shots are very well done. This is probably the best choreographed the action has been in these movies as well, the way the camera follows each fight is nothing short of amazing. 

I think now is a better time than any to talk about how great the side characters are, to me a great side character always strengthens the foundation of a movie. And this movie has a very rich bounty in that regards, my favourite of which has to be the Bowery King who naturally just steals every scene he's in. But everyone else is cool as well, Winston and Charon are legendary, the Adjudicator is underrated, and hey this one has Adrian Pimento in it. 

And that's my reviews of the trilogy, some of my points carry over across each movie but I spread it out to save repeating myself. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Chapter 4 has in store for me. 

Anyway, thanks for reading. :)
