We all love a good Keanu Reeves action movie, so what could be better? A GREAT one! And John Wick definitely fits that description easily. With the film’s fresh plotline, interesting character, and amazing visual effects, John Wick not only makes the audience feel engaged throughout the film, but also gives a stylish redesign of the usual “assassin” movie and sets a new precedent for future films. Is the movie perfect? No. There are points within the film which may confuse the audience, seem very unrealistic, and even not make sense at all. However, looking at the motion picture as a whole, most can easily agree that John Wick obviously deserves the score he gets.
