John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum | Average Guy Movie Review

After killing a member of the High Table on Continental grounds, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) once again finds himself on the run with a price on his head. But he's not the only one paying for his actions, an Adjudicator (Asia Kate Dillon) has been dispatched by the High Table to punish those who aided him. Will John be able to make things right before he drowns in the bloodbath he started over his car and his dog? If anyone can, it's Baba Yaga himself!



With the action kicking off pretty much where Chapter 2 left things, we're seeing a different side to John Wick. Over the course of the last two movies we've seen him utilise every asset he has available to him, carefully planning and executing his missions, now he's very much alone...and improvising. For him it's a nightmare, trapped in a city filled with rival assassins, all looking to claim that $14 million bounty. But for us, it's delicious carnage as Wick literally kills his way through a multitude of differ…

John Wick: Chapter 2: Average Guy Movie Review

The man that is sheer will is back, and he doesn't disappoint! In John Wick, the titular assassin opened a doorway into the underworld he left behind, in order to seek revenge on the people who killed his dog and stole his car. Now a demon from his past - someone to whom he's bound by a blood oath - has come through the doorway and dragged John back into his old life. The demon is Santino D'Antonio, an Italian crime lord who helped John with the impossible task that allowed him to escape the life. In order to fulfil the oath, John must complete a task for Santino, something Santino can't or won't do himself.

The problem with sequels is more often than not, it follows exactly the same pattern as the first movie, only with different characters. The Hangover Part 2, Ghostbusters 2, Jaws 2 are all guilty of this. John Wick: Chapter 2 doesn't make this mistake. It doesn't necessarily bring anything new to the table, but it does delve deeper into the criminal unde…

What's Up Moustache?

There's always some interesting information coming out of Hollywood, here's some that caught my eye.


First, footage of Keanu Reeves training on a shooting range for John Wick 2. We see him engage multiple targets at varying distances, transitions from his primary weapon to his sidearm and a shotgun, all with speed and precision.

A lot of work went in to the first movie and it showed, John Wick was very successful and very popular with movie goers. Now, those working on the sequel are going to have to work really hard considering how high they set the bar with the first movie. Unfortunatley we have to wait until February 2017 to see John Wick 2. Also out in February is Fifty Shades Darker, a watered down porno courtesy of a Twilight fan fiction writer, The Lego Batman Movie, a spin off of The Lego Movie and The Mountain Between Us starring Charlie Hunnam and Margot Robbie. If John Wick 2 lives up to its predecessor I don't think it will have any trouble with its competition …
