John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★★

This is what I was looking for revisiting this franchise. The action and choreography in this are very clearly a notch above the first two films. The knife shop, horse and bike chase scenes in particular have a gasp inducing jaw dropping quality to them that's missing for me in the first two. As a fan of The Raid films the Shinobi fight feels like fan service and that entire finale in the all glass florescent lit office looks absolutely stunning in 4K HDR. Seeing so much Ian McShane and Lance Reddick the past few night makes me want to rewatch Deadwood and The Wire. RIP Lance, the man was a legend. I still have some gripes with the writing, performances and pacing but the quality of action carries and makes up for that. A little spooked looking at the 170min runtime of John Wick 4 but if the action sequences are anything like this then I'm here for it and hyped.
