John Wick is a retired hit man whose wife just died, leaving him a puppy as a gift. When a Russian mafia boss’s son broke into John’s house, stealing his mustang and killing his dog, the protagonist embarks on a revenge journey, killing everyone!
With this simple plot, the director tries (and actually succeeds) in delivering a classic and refreshing shoot’em up. So if you have a 1h40 to fill, John Wick is the perfect flick. Featuring a stoic Keanu Reeves kicking serious ass a la Chuck Norris, a Michael Nyqvist as the Russian mafia boss, Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) as his son, and Willem Dafoe as a Deus ex Machina.
A decent action movie that know what it is.
