John Wick

John Wick ★★★½

Don't believe the hype.

Well, kind of believe the hype. John Wick is a fun revenge thriller that throws back to late-90s/early 00's action films - a time when action choreography was put on a pedestal, rather than hidden in quick cut editing - and tunes from rock stalwarts like Marilyn Manson drove the action. For the record: there is literally a Marilyn Manson song in John Wick. In fact, that same Marilyn Manson song plays twice in the film. TWICE.

Welcome back Keanu, we missed you.
