Genre: Action, Crime and Thriller
Conclusion: 3/5
This picks up exactly where John Wick 2 finishes. I did find that all of the fight sequences were far too long and could have easily been halved. I have to say though how well the fight sequences were choreographed. After watching some of the fight scenes I felt exhausted. Keanu Reeves began training for this film four months before filming. Apparently, in this film John Wick kills 94 people. While filming this film Halle Berry broke three ribs. I know I say this a lot but the film was far too long standing in at 2 hours 10 minutes. It could have easily been an hour and a half and therefore could have been much more enjoyable to watch. I did however think that this was a better film than John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) and fitted together more. For all those fans who love the John Wick franchise you will be pleased to know that the production team etc have just starting filming for John Wick 4!!
