WHAT I LIKE?

John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum never disappoints to be a worthy and even better installment than its predecessors of this action-fueled franchise about the super assassin, John Wick. I really couldn’t imagine that it could even get better for the 3rd time around. What I like about John Wick 3 is still the consistent formula the audiences craved – PURE VIOLENCE, GORE & CRUELTY. John Wick’s brand of film goes beyond violence as it became a masterpiece and a breakthrough Hollywood film that could survive with pure man-to-man action sequences from beginning to end without those cringe-worthy moments and editing. I am really impressed on how they were able to sustain brilliantly-executed fight scenes even without musical scoring in the background. There were times that all we hear are punches, heaving breathing, splash of blood and the raw sounds of real fighting scenes. Story-wise, the 3rd Chapter was able to pick up the pieces from John Wick’s miserable journey under the radar of the High Tables after his betrayal. Fight Scenes are still commendable and I love how some of the chasing scenes were done too. Keanu Reeves still got this. He was just pure joy to watch on-screen. Cinematography was superb. Musical Scoring is also good. Visual Editing is as raw as the fight scenes. This movie is bot suitable for 16 years and below. For me, this the best in the FRANCHISE.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

This might be the best in the FRANCHISE but somehow all the fight scenes are too cliche already. There is a certain boredom on pure action scenes considering its their 3rd installment. For the record, I fell asleep during the Climax.

RATINGS:

7.5/10 POPCORN

WHAT I LIKE?

John Wick: Chapter 2 gave the best and most impressive choreographed man-to-man stunts ever made in Hollywood. Aside from a very creative camera angles and positioning, the film brought a realistic thrill with its series of action sequences and seemless car chases and crashes that will truly please action-hungry audiences. For the record, I haven’t watched the first film so I don’t have a basis of comparison. Regardless of that, I was still able to grasp its origins along the way. The plot was not sacrificed as it still tell the story even though there are so many things going around. Despite its general formula of violence and brutality, John Wick: Chapter 2 is entertaining and a  brilliantly crafted cinematic masterpiece that showcased the best of Keanu Reeves yet in terms of action films and a breakthrough in action movies as a whole. The movie has full of adrenaline. Worth-watching if you are fan of the first film and the genre.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Well, it is graphically disturbing due to extreme violence. There’s a lot of blood in the film. You may want to skip this one if you are not a fan of non-stop brutality magnified on the big screen.

9/10 Popcorns
