No rest for the Wick(ed)

John Wick: Parabellum is the third chapter into the always entertaining John Wick franchise.

The latest instalment picks up right after the events of the second movie, with John Wick (Keanu Reeves) trying to escape theU$14 million price tag put on his head. This leads to a fight for his life around every corner, no matter where he goes.

If that's not enough to satisfy your curiosity, the action kicks off within 5 minutes from the start of the movie giving you all the violence you can handle… in spectacular fashion.

If you found John Wick 1 and 2 entertaining, you'd be happy to hear that this one is much, much bigger and better, both in scale and execution.

The 3rd chapter improves both on the action and the cinematography, while keeping a grip on the story that is perfect enough to connect the set-pieces.

Right from the first scene to the very last, John Wick 3 had me on the edge of my seat, stuffing popcorn into my mouth by the handful. Every single action sequence is amazingly impressive, mind-blowing, outstanding, crowd-pleasing, heart-pounding, eye-popping… honestly, there just aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe the beauty in chaos that John Wick 3 provides.

John Wick is all about action and it doesn't shy away from what it's trying to do at all. The movie is accompanied by some light, natural humour that worked well and made it feel very different from the other two movies, even throwing in a Matrix reference. It also boasts gorgeous visuals, locations and camera work, bringing the film to a next-level experience.

John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum is an absolute must watch for any action fan but, you might want to leave the kids at home for this one.

WE give John Wick a 4.5/5
