IF YOU WANT PEACE, PREPARE FOR WAR.
When a contract worth $14 million is made on his life, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) has to fight his way out of New York and come up with a plan to save himself from the organization that once employed him. It’s been said that the original intention was to create multiple films but this overlong chapter should have had the balls to come up with a definitive ending. Many amusing moments during the fights involve knives, horses and hounds; more than ever, this is really a western. But the final half-hour is sorely disappointing.
