John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★

At times, with its neon-blue / neon-pink flashing lights aesthetic, it's the most visually dazzling of the series but I also felt towards the second half it doesn't know when to quit. John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum gets off to a rip-roaring start which includes death by textbook that's so persuasively done there couldn't be any other way, a knife-throwing fight, and a horse versus motorcycles chase down New York streets. Keanu Reeves is running and motorcycle driving for his life in this chapter while a $14 million dollar bounty is on his head after he offended the secret league of assassins in the previous installment. Once again, the no-cuts choreography as he dispatches multiple henchmen in a single frame, is aces. The movie loses its' power when we wonder, though, when is this revenge saga ever going to end?

Halle Berry aggressively and adriotly helps out on hero in the Casablanca scenes. We're glad she's there because Reeves probably does the least amount of talking than in any previous entry.
