John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

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

Or, “John Wick and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week.”

How much lower can you get than being excommunicado-all services at the Continental denied, every assassin under the High Table after you for a hefty sum, and instant death for anyone who tries to help you in any way? John Wick Chapter 3 says “I’m so glad you asked” and takes the viewer on another globe-trotting adventure soaked in blood and full of intrigue. Forced to give up his last tangible connections to his late wife (and any hope of a normal life), John extends his quest for vengeance to the very top. Halle Berry joins him as uneasy ally Sofia, and Laurence Fishburne makes a welcome return as the Bowery King, who hatches a plan in the final scene that will ensure no one ever fucks with him or Mr. Wick ever again. Dazzling action, crisp cinematography, deep dives into lore, it’s exhilarating and exhausting and I love it. Bring on part 4.
