“John Wick” was officially released in 2014. (same year Interstellar came out) It received praise from critics and movie goers alike. In addition to positive reception, the film made enough revenue at the box office. John Wick spawned a franchise with sequels and merchandise.
Keanu Reeves did an excellent job for his performance as the titular character.
Other Cast Members such has Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Willem Dafoe, Alfie Allen & Michael Nyqvist all did a solid job for their respective performances.
David Leitch & Chad Stahekski both did a great job directing. The former made the movie uncredited. David also co-produced the movie alongside Eva Longoria.
Derek Kolstad wrote the script.
Action Sequences has great fight choreography and gun-fu.
Cinematography didn’t have any technical issues.
Tyler Bates orchestrated the soundtrack.
Wick’s motive to come out of retirement feels unique. Rather than avenging somebody’s father, mother, brother, sister, best friend or wife, Wick’s quest is to avenge his dog’s death.
The Final Verdict: A, FOR APEX!
John Wick is an instant hit that brought Keanu Reeves back on track.
