John Wick

John Wick ★★★★½

"John will come for you, and you will do nothing because you can do nothing, so get the fuck out of my sight."

I remember when I first heard about this film back in 2014 about 2 months before its release and before we even got a trailer and I was just thinking that it was going to end up being some shitty straight-to-VOD action movie......and I couldn't have possibly been more off the mark.

John Wick is the most stylish and thrilling revenge action film to have been made in years with a magnificent sense of visual splendor and some very unique lore. It's the perfect blend of the morbidly funny and self-aware with the serious, personal and respectable. Give him all the crap you want as far as acting goes, but Keanu Reeves is and always will be one of the most authentic and badass action stars in existence and his commanding presence is only accented by the cast of great character actors in every scene. The Nightclub set piece is one of the best that I've ever seen and it's even more of a treat in 4k. Not to mention, this is just about as quotable as some of the most popular 80's action movies. I couldn't be more excited to see Chapter 2 tonight!
