    Amazing style and HARD action.

    The first John Wick was amazing. Two was fantastic but I felt the world building got in the way of the action in a way that didn't happen in the first.
    The third turns all the world building into purely set dressing and plot mechanics. It's all about the action.

    It take two of the actors from The Raid and just uses them as a mid boss

    faults may be too much action. I saw this as the second half of a double bill with "Us" as part one after a long day at work (up at 5). I was awake through out and loved it but in some of the shootouts I was feeling a bit numb.

    Highlights include the antiques weapons store room fight and the aforementioned raid actors fight

    also they get him to do a line from the matrix


    saw it in peckhamplex. nice atmosphere spoilt a bit by one group of talkers. They weren't the worst and this movie deserves an audible reaction but don't fucking chat. also phone during the movie should be broken.

    I think those poor buggers who haven't seen it yet should avoid this thread for a while for it may have spoilers.

    Now, I just can't put my finger on what. :D

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    That’s got a nice ring to it.

    I loved it.
    That knife scene. :eek:

    The bloke in front of me was on his phone so often I could have quite happily thumped him with a Russian folklore book. :thumbs:

    "What would John Wick do?"

    Well that was just fucking great. Cinema was packed, the more violent the death the more everyone enjoyed it.

    e2a the dog scenes were really well done!

    There's a decent quality version on the net already.

    Those action sequences are top class. 8-10 second shots all over the place. It's like Bruce Lee...you can just watch the action scenes again and again. So well done.

    The cinematographer from Brotherhood of the Wolf did the same for this.

    For those who know.

    Haven’t seen the second film. Do I need to do so before catching up the third?

    Yeah they basically chain into each other and there is stuff that won't make sense in this if you haven't seen 2.

    But it is the lesser plot stuff

    Better if you do as 3 refers to 2 quite a lot so you'll miss stuff, or just not properly understand it.
    It's also a good film so worth watching.
