In this third instalment of the adrenaline-fuelled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
I liked the first John Wick movie and the second was ok. But, in my opinion, this instalment of the John Wick franchise is violence porn. The very thin plot serves merely to tie together high-level violence set pieces. The violence is constant and extreme and, apart from two creative moments (one involving two dogs and the other some horses), the movie became endlessly boring and repetitive. The violence would be more palatable if there was some character development and a decent narrative. But the John Wick franchise seems to have gone the way of so many other sequel movies. Give it a miss.
