John Wick, 2014 film starring Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist and Alfie Allen. Crime action movie that is from start to finish killing!! I have watched a lot of crime drama’s and war movies but I have never seen so much graphics killing as this one. In one fight the hero must have shot 50 armed men several times each and the producers obvious favorite style is through the head showing pretty realistic results.
Reeves plays an ex hitman forced out of retirement when the son of his ex boss mistakenly steals his favorite car starting a war between the two. Wick is solely motivated by revenge and only see’s in tunnel vision to that end. His ex boss obviously wants to protect his son from wick and the ensuing war leaves a huge trail of dead men.
If you are into absolutely gruesome scenes of killing and mob activity then this flick is for you. The visuals are really good, as I said they spared no expense on cgi making the head shots look real. Cast choice was good also, Reeves makes the character very likeable. (Bear in mind, there are no good guys in this movie, just criminals)
