The Guest ★★★★½

Managing to successfully channel 'Golden era' John Carpenter is no mean feat, and then to throw a bit of Refn Drive panache in the form of a sexy soundtrack and the concoction becomes potent and mesmerising. A star-making turn from Dan Stevens (no I have never seen Downton Abbey) and a career resurrection for filmmaker Adam Wingard after what I thought was an abominable film in You're Next, The Guest ticked every box I crave in an explosive action genre piece. So John Wick Can Suck My Dick because this is the goods right here!
