Keanu Reeves is back as John Wick in his most lethal potrayal to date and the critics are loving it. John Wick: Chapter 3 seems to be everything we ever wanted.
John Wick began his journey as a puppy avenging boogeyman, who is both lethal and loveable. The first two installments of the John Wick trilogy both received acclaim from critics due to their intense action scenes, beautiful cinematography and the performance genius that is Keanu Reeves. The third installment seems to be living up to its legacy as critics rave, giving this film an overwhelmingly positive review.
Brent Godman from Film Inquiry raved that is was the best John wick film to date:
#JohnWick3 is action at its finest. It raises the bar for the franchise and adds new depth to the#JohnWick universe. @asiakatedillon, @halleberry and @mark_dacascos are all great additions.— Brent Goldman (@bgoldman22) May 3, 2019
It also features what may be my favorite kill of all three films.@FilmInquiry pic.twitter.com/n2qgBUmEkk
What can possibly be more creative than killing your enemies with a pencil? Well, I personally am dying to see!
Josh Tapia of Screen Junkies also seems to think that Chapter 3 is the best John Wick ever tweeting:
I was lucky enough to catch a screening of #JohnWick3 early and I can confirm it’s all the awesome you’re hoping for! Action wise it’s the best of the franchise with a great mix of gun and hand to hand combat.— JTE (@JTEmoviethinks) May 3, 2019
Also that Halle Berry/Dog scene 👌🏻 pic.twitter.com/yMwDoeTvBl
For him, this movie hit the trifecta of action, puppies and Halle Berry which is all any John Wick fan could ever want.
IGN Movies’ Mike Rougeau states with no spoilers that he believes that the movie will be ‘controversial’ but didn’t say more on the topic because, well #nospoilers.
#JohnWick3 continues to build on the series' mythology and has some of the coolest action and most memorable side characters of the entire series. I'm not sure about everything it adds, and certain things will be controversial (no spoilers). But overall it's more @JohnWickMovie! pic.twitter.com/Vodcx2nJwE— Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) May 3, 2019
John Wick was declared as ‘excommunicated’ by the Continental at the end of the second film. This left Wick with a $14 million bounty on his head.
We can expect to see John fighting for his life against all the best assassins of the Continental and its associates. The new installment will feature Lance Reddick, Ruby Rose, Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne in their classic role with Halle Berry being added to the cast as Sofia, a dog-loving assassin who helps Wick take on the High Table. Is it just me or does she sound like a female John Wick?
I can’t wait to see John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum on May 17.
