    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★★

    It’s exactly what you’d expect going in to a John Wick movie, and it didn’t disappoint. 

    This movie does not let up. It’s a non-stop action scenes from start to finish, and all of them are wonderfully crafted. Excellent performance by Keanu Reeves and all of the stunts, as always.

    My only issue I came across with this film was that John Wick doesn’t have that motivation to avenge his dog’s death, or get his car back like the…

    This is definitely going to my favorites.

    The theme also keeps on switching for the entire movie. Between…

    Firstly, it’s a complete mess, but in a good way. Can’t think of a more fitting conclusion than to just mash all of the superheroes and the plot points together and see what happens. 

    The first two hours were full of fan service moments and the plot didn’t really move forward as fast as it could’ve, which could be rough to get through, unless you’ve really watched every MCU movies from…
