John Wick

Do you want to see Keanu Reeves kick ass? Then you will be extremely satisfied with this movie. This is adrenaline at its finest and it’s refreshing to see an actor, besides Tom Cruise, do their own stunts. It’s directed with a certain style and with beautiful choreography. The directors are stuntman so I would be shocked if the action wasn't handled well in this. You don’t come here for the story and the acting, you come here for the action and it delivers. The actors in this are fine but you come for Mr. Reeves and, I believe, this is best role yet. Yes, I said that correctly. Keanu is one of those actors to where, if you make the right vehicle for him, he can succeed and it compliments his acting. Action movies like this allow him to be better than what the script is, and that’s exactly what he does. He just makes the movie more enjoyable and brings a sense of humanity to his character. The cinematography is very good and heightens the fight scenes to a whole new level. If you have a good looking shot but bad choreography, then your scene is terrible. If you have both it makes the scene more intense. There is a nightclub scene, in particular, that is lit well, shot well with beautiful wide shots and the choreography is spot-on. That is how you make an action scene great and the whole movie is like this. The movie never drags, as I was entertained all throughout waiting for Keanu to fight the next person. The film is an hour and forty minutes and that is a perfect length for a film like this. Overall this is a solid action film and I enjoyed myself watching Keanu back in a good action role. 7/10
