John Wick (2014) Review

Johnny Utah is back!
Theon Greyjoy proves once again that he's a huge A-Hole.
Keanu Reeves haters just cut it out.
Up until about a month ago, I had never heard of this film. When I first heard about it, I had no plans to see it because I figured it was just going to be another Jack Reacher type of movie. Early reviews starting coming in, and my interest certainly grew. Well, I'm very glad that my initial perception was completely wrong.
John Wick is right up there with The Raid 2 as the two best action films of 2014. It's no secret that I'm a big fan of action films. Give me an adequate story and bad ass action and I will be satisfied. The movie effectively makes us want Reeves to succeed and makes us really hate the person/people he's after. Although, the event that set him on his path of revenge really pissed me off. Keanu Reeves owns this role. Very glad to see him excel in a film. It's certainly been a little while, but his old 90s self is back and hopefully here to stay!

Rating: 4/5
