John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

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

The Director "All of this for what, because of a puppy?"
John Wick" It wasn't just a puppy."

Picking up where John Wick 2 left off, the High Table has a $14 million open bounty on John's head, and every assassin in New York City is hunting him.

John Wick Chapter 3 is another stunning looking action film under the directorship of stuntman-turned-stunt coordinator-turned-stunt-choreographer-turned-director Chad Stahelski. The action sequences are again so well choreographed and quite mesmerising, particularly the first knife fight. From the neon-lit, rain-soaked streets of New York to the sun-drenched dunes of the Sahara Desert and the glass-encased futuristic chess game on the managers' floor at the top of The Continental, it's like they've thrown everything BUT the kitchen sink at this one. Acting from all is on point, and Angelica Houston's character was a pleasant surprise. Hopefully, she returns for the sequel. I'm not an action movie aficionado, but I was thinking about how to describe the John Wick series to someone who hasn't seen it. All I can think of is the director, stunt team, and the entire production crew have elevated the action film franchise to a work of art. It really is quite unprecedented!
