This Week: John Wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum
This is all happening over the course of a few weeks. Seriously.
It’s been 5 years since the first film, but I don’t think all the corpses from the first film have been found and disposed of yet by the end of this film.
That is a LARGE murder spree in such a short amount of time.
The trailers mention how John needs a lot of guns, but hell, he uses just about anything! Guns, knives, hatchets, dogs, bare fists, his belt, a GOD DAMN HORSE! He straight up slaps a horse and has it kick a guy to death. TWICE!
There is just an insane amount of violence and murder in this film.
Oh and we get proper ninjas. Seriously, you are watching a scene and the background just comes to life and kills people. PROPER. F***ING. NINJAS!
One of the downsides is, that like Chapter 2, it is more setting up another film than being its own film.
The first film existed on its own and although the mythology and the world building was there, it was a self contained story that could exist without sequels. This movie is just another middle to a longer story.
But my god is it entertaining to watch.
Next Week: Disney’s Brightburn. James Gunn’s reimagining of the classic Arabian tale, but instead lets pretend Aladdin is a psychopath who wants to kill everyone.
