John Wick (Keanu Reeves) reunites with Winston Scott (Ian McShane) the owner of the New York Continental Hotel who is a long friend of his. After breaking the most essential rule for hired killers, that is, “no business is allowed to be conducted on hotel grounds”. This movie is a continuation of the previous one as he travels around the world to seek help from peers in the business as he reaches the High Table. In Paris, he has to overcome various hired assassins while running around in a sharp black suit with the help of the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne). His final challenge was to go against the High Table’s champion, Caine (Donnie Yen). Memorable action scenes are both comedic and thrilling as John Wick fights against his demons to be free.
Watch out for the great cinematic experience from the top of buildings, the 200-plus steps, car crashing and more! The camaraderie of the hired killers makes you wonder if monetary benefits are more important than lasting friendships. The passing of Lance Reddick who plays Charon the concierge at the Continental Hotel in New York was unfortunate, as he was one of my favourite characters.
If you are new to the franchise, catch up on the first three movies on Netflix. I enjoyed it and would give it 5 out of 6 stars.
