The Overview: Beware of Spoilers…
John Wick [Reeves] is on the run after killing a member of the High Table on neutral ground. With a $14 million bounty on his head, there’s danger at every turn. Wick has a plan, but for it to work, he’ll have to fight his way out of the city and to the one person who can provide a possible option for his life. The odds are against any of it working, but then again, this is John Wick we’re talking about.
The John Wick series is the best movie franchise in years. Each new chapter (film) really feels like an extension of the previous films. In other franchises each film often feels like a step up or slightly different world. John Wick 3 raises the bar for action and provides a broader view of Wick’s world. The new cast members (Berry, Dacascos and Dillon) are perfectly cast.
If you liked John Wick 1 and 2, you’ll dig Chapter 3. They’ve already set a release date for John Wick 4 and that’s May 21, 2021.
