Watching the training video for John Wick 2 is what inspired me to take up target shooting. Mad respect to reeves for the amount of time and effort he put in.

I can't wait for John wick 3

He not only does that tactical training....but he also extensively trains in martial arts and fighting. When you dig into Reeves and start reading about him.....he’s probably one of the most laid back and ‘real’ celebrities out there. Very humble and he gives a ton of money to worthy charities. Probably my ‘favorite’ actor out there....not just based on his movies but more based on how he is as a person.

I haven't seen any of these movies, but I plan on it, solely because of my respect and admiration for Reeves.

They are really fun and well executed action movies. With some of the best fight scene choreography I’ve seen in movies. Additionally, they’re visually stunning as well. Not sure what the technical terminology would be but you can see that there is a theme or ‘mood’ that is intentionally rendered into however they produce the ‘look’.

Agree, much respect to Reeves as a human being.

Ah man, you would love them.  The first one is almost the perfect action film.  And Reeves is perfectly suited to the role.

The second is great fun as well.  Really looking forward to the third.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

It was bugging me, so I looked it up.  Parabellum (Wiki)

Parabellum is Latin for "prepare for war" and is often used within the context of the phrase Si vis pacem, para bellum, meaning "If you want peace, prepare for war."

Which, translated into the story, means for John Wick "kill every single motherfuqer until they finally get the hint that you want to be left alone"  :metal
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Well, they've already announces John Wick 4. May 21st, 2021. https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/news/john-wick-4-sets-2021-release-date/ar-AABE0u0?li=BBnbfcL

Never had a doubt there’d be a 4th one.....and that was prior to seeing #3. They have a cool franchise going and are simply putting out a great product. That ‘world’ they’ve created around the assassin underground is very interesting. Plus, John Wick himself is just a bad A$$. Jason Bourne....John Rambo....they ain’t got nuthin’ on John Freaking Wick.

Saw this yesterday and I spent as much time laughing as I did gawping at the over-the-top violence. I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't watched the film. Just suffice it to say, if you liked JW2 you'll probably get a charge out of this installment. I've been a fan of Mark Dacascos ever since Brotherhood of the Wolf (Le pacte des loups) and he certainly didn't disappoint in Parabellum!  He was hilarious.  :lol

Okay, hearing about how hilarious it is, is not what I expected from John Wick review.  I mean I know there are moments of humor, usually very dry and really just there to break the tension for a minute, but are they really going for outright laughs this time?  Or is it more laughing about how ridiculous and over-the-top everything is?

Oh, it's intense and teeth-grittingly-violent. In fact, I'll bet my reaction to some of the more extreme moments may be my tendency to relieve my anxiety with laughter. However, yes, there are traits of the character Zero (played by Mark Dacascos) that are certainly intentionally funny (and effective). You're right that they are primarily used as sparing moments of relief.

I apologize if my characterization makes the film sound primarily like a comedy. It's not. It's a John Wick film for sure and ticks all the boxes you would expect. It also adds some new thrills to John's legend and greatly expands on the underworld of the assassins' society.

Would watch again.

Most of the laughs we're for over the top violent moments. But there were several legit funny moments that were meant to be funny.

Just saw part 3. It was awesome  :metal





Spoilers:




I seriously thought that Winston shot Wick with dummy rounds or something in an attempt to make the Table think he was dead, but apparently not?

Ah, so there's a thread for this movie after all.  I completely forgot about this.  I even posted in it a few times! :lol

It is indeed the funniest of the three so far, but that in no way detracts from the movie.  If anything, it adds yet another dimension.  I loved how Zero is a total John Wick fanboy.  Of course they have to kill each other, but wow, such an honor.
