      @Muzaffard36 so who do you think would have done it better? Since most people feel that Keanu has extremely good timing based on what he did with the Matrix & he was willing to take a leap of faith with the untried director & production team. Remember they were exstuntmen who worked on Matrix!

      The other thing is one wouldn't expect him to do a movie like this. It would draw people who are interested in what he does. I don't really like most action films they're usually mindless fighting. Love Statham, Asian, etc. usually a good story line & closer to reality. I'm female but I watched it because I like Keanu Reeves. I find him a very interesting and strange actor. I never saw his stupid ones he did when he was a kid but he's always done very interesting independent films. So I was interested in this one. I watched it on my own (rented it) and was enamored in the storyline and the choreography. To me it's the same as watching a ballet or martial arts competition, but with guns, and it was fascinating. I also liked the backstory of the assassins having a safe house, etc. Think I watched the original movie at least 6 - 7times. The second movie not as happy with it. It didn't make sense the ending because there's not that many assassins let's be real, maybe they called them all in and had them come to that area so now I think they've gotten a little crazy on the killing sadly, where as the first one was elegant the second one became overkill and I'm afraid the third one is just gonna be completely a killing spree. You know that kind of stuff and sadly going back to the old lets kill as many people as you can and that was the difference between the first John Wick and the second one. The third one I know it's gonna be just as bad. However, I really like the choreography. There's a lot to learn in the handling of weapons while defending oneself.

      Probably will buy it as a CD set when all 3 are packaged together as a Holiday offering next season..

      @Muzaffard36 lol you must be triggered person idk why, but Keanu is a man who focus, don't forget he learnt a lot of martial arts too before performing this movie. Keanu also a gun-man in real life so it's kinda amazing to see he shoots in John Wick saga. For me, no one can replace Keanu for this role. He clearly suitable on any aspect for this character.

          I love the changes they put in these movies I hope they keep doing it. It's why this my favorite movie franchise and why I think it's one of the best action movies of all time. I even consider this one of Keanu Reeves' best movies.

                “Main stream Hollywood action was plagued with insubstantial, cgi heavy spectacle.” That reminds me of some marvel movies I wonder why.

                                It didnt change just managed to bring back the 80's and 90's R rated vibe which Bourne's PG13 + shaky shit started to ruin

                                    John Wick can also be compared to Jackie Chan type action scenes. Keanu Reeves was the perfect man to bring this to Hollywood.

                                            I love how they actually take into consideration that On firearms can and will malfunction and two guns do not have an unlimited ammo cheat code. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy watching Arnold in Commando take on an island full of opposing army with one gun that shoots non stop killing anyone that comes within feet of the round all while none of their rounds come close to Arnold as he mows them down. I also enjoy the one liners like the end of commando where Arnold is fighting a bad guy in a chain link vest named Bennett and after he defeats him by throwing a pipe through his body he say "Bennett, Let off some steam!" I had never seen anything like John Wick. I happened to catch it on cable tv one day and immediately had to find it so I could watch it in its real form. Right after I was hooked. Just a rare movie to see in todays world where they aren't even as good as the old Commando or Steven Segal movies. Its The Rock using his strength to hold up a 50 story building while he saves his family. Total ridiculousness. Obviously JW is not 100% realistic but its just right in how much it adds to make it entertaining.

                                              I felt that the fighting in John wick was more realistic in that he does pick up the dropped weapons which never made sense to me they didn't pick them up before. If you're defending yourself in a fire fight and its a large one your going to run out of ammo, as there's only so much you can carry. So you've got to pick up the weapons that the others have dropped hopefully and you also need to reload. Reloading isn't going to happen at the most perfect time. I also feel that today's Street Fighter assassin people would be highly trained former military and would have more of a ballet in their work. so let's go back in my shoe damn ups of the eighties something had to give something had to improve and the foreign films were improving and had to come to American cinema at some point and it did with John Wick.

                                              As a female I rented it for myself because I like Keanu Reeves I like the way he acts and the way he plays the protagonist of the movie John Wick number one was a fantastic ride I watched it over and over again I believe I watched it 6 times before I had to return it the next day I was not as pleased with the ending of the second movie I feel it was 2 over the top and unrealistic but that's what the directors wanted I think it would have been more frightening if you hadn't known who really was the enemy instead of making it look like everyone was.

                                              As for Keanu Reeves I have a great deal of respect for him, compared to a lot of the other actors. He doesn't bring politics into his movies, he just does movies, he doesn't do them to tell us what to do, he doesn't get up and tweet that he's this, and he's that, & we need to do as he tweets unlike others. He's just a person, he keeps his life private, and he knows that what he does can affect what people do. So he's very careful about what he says and does. What I like is that he is a real person and that he doesn't use his notoriety or fame to try and make us do something.

                                              The only thing that he does is he does have charities, but he's so quiet about it that you don't know he has these charities. To me, he's like the old movie stars way back in the 30s and 40s. They really didn't use their fame to get something and instead used it to help others. They knew they were lucky & merely human on a stage loved for a part they played not the person they were.

                                              When Keanu did the Matrix at first, I didn't understand what was happening in it, but I have to admit it does have a cult following because of what it teaches, it teaches us to be very careful, not only about say, for instance, if we were attacked by aliens and whatever we would do, but also be careful about the world around us, what's real and what's not.

                                              Just the other day I was talking to my husband that there was a beautiful rendition of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hello darkness my old friend" by a little girl on YouTube, and it was very haunting. It struck me, it's here. Talking all the time, but saying nothing, on Twitter Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram. WhatsApp. Putting our lives out for all to see talking, but not really speaking. These neon gods, really scary, oh, my husband, just looked at me and said, I never thought of it that way. I'm sure that when they wrote the song, they were just writing something that came from the heart, not realising that in their life time, they would see us doing this.

                                              Did you know one of the Google creaters has a church that worships as its God, a computer! Why not, it's perfect, it wouldn't make a mistake. Well, yes, of course, it would, all computers are programmed by a human being, it only knows what the human being put into it, even AI is created by th,e intelligence of the person who programed it originally.

                                                          While John Wick deserves alot of praises, to me without The Man From Nowhere which acts almost as a precursor to this type of action movie, we would not have a John Wick and deserves more attention then its garnered.

It really stayed with me though i never watched the movie at the time and here years later its allover the internet! Mainly i want to say, props to that the poster designer for suck a striking image!!

He just doesn’t rely on cgi or winging it, he puts his body & mind through it. Keanu is awesome, the first movie where the fight scene on the dance floor, he was ill and done it like in 1 take

Just one is per month like the books or just release all at once, really put fans in a frenzy. Funny how Matrix influences and now John Wick is thrown around with Marvel/disney. Not forgetting the whole video game aspect of this title.

Im sure youve seen the videos like "instagram model vs supermodel" and it reminds of that. He has the grace and modesty but also talent of the older hollywood idols. The hollywood of today is much more flashy and for clout.

                                                                                      • wintersnake

                                                                                        • Milarnie Alinea

                                                                                          • Faria Mohsen
