John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★★

Actually enjoyed many parts of this more than 2. Things kick off at top gusto with John still on the run before his hour is up and his luck runs out. There’s more vulnerability on display and we get to feel the full brunt of the assassins, who have no qualms about taking out one of their own when the price is high enough.

But… it’s also quite disjointed and bloated in places, an example being the final fight sequence - did the henchmen fight need to be that drawn out? The Morocco section with Halle Berry and her canine companions is another big culprit - the stuntwork and training is beyond cool, but there’s only so many times you can can watch a dog tearing at a stuntman’s crotch and sleeve before it starts to feel almost over-choreographed.

I hate to sound too negative though - it has moments that hold back its momentum which is frustrating, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. But I think another rewatch is in order before I can completely make my mind up on the ratings and rankings for this series.
