John Wick (played by Keanu Reeves) is an intriguing hitman thriller. At first the film casts a light on the vulnerable / emotional side to its main character. Portraying a loving relationship which ends abruptly by the death of John Wick’s wife. The film‘s build up makes it hard to believe John Wick would be capable of killing an insurmountable people in the next 100 minutes? Alas, his wife had purchased a puppy to be delivered sub-sequential to her death. The relationship is blossoming and the puppy represented a glimmer of hope that John Wick would not have to grieve alone. Until falling out with a group of idiot Russians at a petrol station, sparked a vendetta which would change the entire dynamic and mood of the film. The abundance of forthcoming events signals a revival of revenge, sadness and pure rage for John Wick to come out of hitman retirement and to sum the next 100 minutes up as purely f**king sh*t up (in a good way). A must see if you love outrageously outlandish shoot-em-ups.
