John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★½

From a pure action standpoint the first 30 minutes of this is probably the highlight of the series so far. Total momentum, with one terrificly choreographed fight after another. Knife fight especially still works wonders. After that however there’s a large period where this thing really screeches to a halt narratively though it’s still occasionally rescued by an excellent set piece (looking at you attack dogs). Still, even if this is a bit of a come down from Chapter 2 the incredible visuals and even more so with how Stahelski continues to find new and impressive ways to clearly shoot and stage his action makes this second to none in modern Hollywood. Even by the time he’s completely exhausted you with all these big fight sequences he tops it all off with a Game of Death styled Continental set climax that’s probably the most visually stunning any of these have been yet. Dacascos walks away with this thing.
