Fantastic action movie
Reviewed in Canada on September 27, 2019
I came to the John Wick series in a roundabout way: I was travelling to SE Asia and John Wick 3 was one option on the inflight entertainment system, but since I hadn't seen the first two episodes I waited until I caught up, which I did with a combination 1 & 2 Blu Ray package and now Wick 3 from Amazon. I have no idea why the Wick series skipped my attention, but I am delighted to catch up with it now. Having watched the three episodes on successive nights I am now hooked.
John Wick 3 takes up from 2, where John has a price on his head, and adds in the deconsecration of the sheltering hotel run by Ian McShane thanks to Wick's blowing an opponent's head off in Wick 2. All this ties together in 3, as every baddie around tries to take out Wick. And fails, of course. On my video system with 7.2 audio, the movie is all enveloping with gunshots echoing around, lots of subwoofer action, and a loud soundtrack that all combine to an immersive experience.
As far as complex plots, well, watch something else. This is the base definition of an action movie, and it delivers. The two hours plus flew by, and I enjoyed every minute. The Blu Ray is excellent, and the movie can be highly recommended to any action fan. Bring on Wick 4! Now!
