MPR Rating: A
Based on some decent reviews, we decided to watch ‘John Wick’ last night. I was a bit skeptical, but I have to admit that I was rapt from the moment the movie started, until it was finished. For a one-off Keanu Reeves movie, it really did well to maintain a gritty yet sleek look, and had a bunch of action. I like that it had a quick ramp to the action scenes, and just kept going and going until he finished his job. The beginning wasn’t origin, it was exactly what we needed to know to understand his thoughts and emotions that drove him to feed his vengeance. Overall I give it an A. We watched it again tonight and enjoyed it the second time around as much as the first time. That says a lot about a movie in its own.
I would recommend to see this if you haven’t yet. If you’re not a Keanu fan, watch it with an open mind and try it anyway, you may be surprised.
