    Im not saying Deathroll is a beta but it sure seems the generation before me doesn't understand Hollywood now.

    John Wick is the modern day Boogeyman, when you cross him you......die.


    He is a very dangerous man, much like myself.

    How can you not like John Wick? You know how much is sucks when the puppy dies in a movie? Like it's just such a let down, one of the saddest things that can happen in a movie. Well in John Wick, he literally kills every single person involved in that dogs killing. It's beyond awesome.

    No, you're not missing anything but it'd be a good way to spend an afternoon if the wife and kids are doing something without you.

    John Wick is a anything but a good guy. He is a contract killer with literally hundreds of murders under his belt. He worked for the mob, did murder for cash.

    Yes, it's ridiculous he kills dozens of other hired guns. But he does get shot. His tactics are incredible, everything from recon to room clearing to weapon retention to reloading to hand to hand including striking and grappling, judo, jiu jitsu. So much obvious time effort and training. Reeves did thousands of hours of intense training for this role and it's patently obvious.

    I figured he was trying to make it more of a fair fight, and not let Thanos have the Infinity Gauntlet.

    John Wick v Thanos would be a fair fight in my opinion, even if Thanos used all the infinity stones he still couldn't get rid of Wick imo.

    Btw, opens tonight so if anybody sees it report back and tell me whatcha think, i'll be at the 12:45pm showing tomorrow(im calling off work for this).

    ************** official review*****************


    Holy shit........10/10

    This movie not just lived up to the hype, it SURPASSED IT.

    - Halles character was badass, she wasn't in it very long though. Woulda been cool to see her in the entire movie.

    - JW 1......great
    JW 2.....even better
    JW 3......the best hands down

    - Halle Berrys 2 german shepherds were doing some unreal stuff, my god. Those dogs were assassins just like her and Wick.

    - The movie was 2+ hours but seemed like only an hour because it was so entertaining.

    - The best full throttle action movie I have personally ever seen, it blows away the original Predator....ya, I said it.

    - The best killing scenes you will ever see in a movie. John Wick is famous for using a pencil to kill.....in this one he uses everything from a book to horses(you'll see WOW).

    - THERE WILL BE A PART 4.......AND THEY SET IT UP PERFECTLY!!!!!

    - Total double cross at the end, DAMN.

    While leaving 100% of the crowd was pumped up at what they just saw. Everyone was high fiving each other laughing. They took the storyline to a different place, literally haha.


    Guys/gals you gotta see this and report back with whatcha think. It blows away part 1 and 2.......im serious. This franchise is getting better and better with each new one.

    I was shocked at how those 2 german shepherds were trained, I thought it was CGI dogs or something but nah.....they were real. During those attacks I was in the theatre grabbing my nuts cringing, OUCH!!!

    This movie was unreal.

    This franchise seperates itself from other movies because of the fight scenes. In 99% of movies the fight scenes are pieced together after cuts during editing.....not in John Wick. The fight scenes are different, there are no cuts and you will see a 2 minute fight NONSTOP without it being cut and pieced together in different parts. The choreography is unmatched. I dont know how Keanu/Halle would fight in those long scenes and still kept remembering what move to make and when to get out of the way on......usually its like quik 30 second fight scenes in movies then they stop and shoot the other parts, in this shit they just keep going almost like they are just freestyling it sorta speak?

    "There will be no business conducted on continental grounds"....Wick didn't pay that no mind at the end of part 2 and it caused all this drama in part 3 now.


    There was business conducted on Continental grounds in this one, it was open season for awhile haha.

    Best action movie I ever saw, no doubt. The fights were more gory and real in this one than even the first two(im serious). Even Halle Berry was RUTHLESS how she was killing everyone.

    Shhhhittttt, JW3 is on King KoNg Balls size killing. When bodies start dropping you're screaming for more. It's a thrill ride. Mofos were cheering in the theater. They tried to calm us down, but Wick was going HAM and it's fantastic to see. Go see that movie and you'll be back saying the same thing.

    Without tipping too much for those who haven't been baptized in JW3, I'll just say that I knew I was in for a wild ride with the early warehouse scene involving knives. Got D, that was a master class in murder any and everybody.

    No spoiler because I wont go into exact detail who this was but this was awesome. 14 million bounty is on Wicks head and before anyone can try to kill him and collect they have to wait UNTIL the second when the bounty goes into effect. So....

    Wick- I still got time left you dont wanna do this
    Dude- nobody will ever know the exact time I kill you, few minutes isn't gonna make a difference, its 14 million.
    Wick- You aint gonna live long enough to spend it.


    Badass.......

    The library scene with the 7 foot guy, Wick used a book the entire time to kick his ass with a pic of his wife still in it, the final blow was cool.

    The scene where him and Halle went to that dudes place so John could talk to him. He shot her dog, bad move. John and Halle acted a fool in there with what they did. Dont mess with her dogs....he found that out. That dude will be in part 4 no doubt because she didn't kill him(knee capped him).

    Those asian assassins that the higher ups sent in were badass, what they did to Lawrence Fischburnes crew was nasty. They absolutely destroyed them with ease and Fischburnes crew was tuff.

    The horse stall scenes.....my god. Next time im at my county fair I will not get within 10 feet of a horse......I dont want no part of that.

    The Wick scene when hes on horseback against the dudes on bikes...

    The Wick scene when hes on the bike against the 6 dudes on bikes with swords who surrounded him on the bridge. JFC......

    All very true, and you must suspend your disbelief throughout the movie. It's not quite as bad as Arnold in "Commando," which has to contain the most impossible gunfight scenes in cinematic history.

    Funny thing about movies featuring tough guys is how much better the ones are where the protagonist is believable and he kills far fewer people. In Paul Newman's "Hombre," John Russell kills no more than 4 or 5 people from start to finish and only because he has no other choice. Good dialogue also helps, like the scene where Richard Boone walks up a hill unarmed to threaten the people with John Russell:

    Cicero Grimes: "How do you all think you're going to get out of here alive?"

    John Russell, while cradling a Winchester carbine: "Hey, I've got a question for you. How you going to get back down that hill?"

    And of course, there's Alan Ladd as Shane who kills, how many, three, and only at the end of the movie?

    Shane: "So you're Jack Wilson."
    Wilson: "What's that mean to you, Shane?"
    Shane: "I've heard about you."
    Wilson: "What have you heard, Shane?"
    Shane: "I've heard that you're a low down yankee liar."

    Movie Review: ‘John Wick 3’ boasts some of the craziest action ever seen
    [​IMG]
    ByJason Fraley |@JFrayWTOPMay 17, 2019 1:08 am


    In 2014, Keanu Reeves launched a killer action franchise in “John Wick,” following an ex-hit-man who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his beloved dog.

    This weekend, we get the third installment “John Wick 3: Parabellum,” a film that ups the ante on violence with some of the craziest fight sequences and highest body counts ever put on film, but a script that leaves room for little else as it jumps from action set piece to set piece.

    The plot picks up with Wick (Reeves) being chased by assassins of the High Table trying to collect a $14 million bounty on his head. The journey spans the Manhattan hotel The Continental managed by Winston (Ian McShane), a ballet company run by The Director (Anjelica Huston), a Brooklyn underground crime lord (Laurence Fishburne), a trip to the markets of Casablanca with friend Sofia (Halle Berry) and ultimately a glass-filled skyscraper.

    Just got back from it. Movie kicks serious anus.

    Hadn’t seen the first one until Tuesday night.

    The action and fighting sequences are just so high octane. I just starting laughing during some of them because they just gone on forever yet they’re perfectly choreographed but they’re also somewhat tongue in cheek because any human would be dead like 10 times over but John Wick is a fvckign superhero. There are like 5 scenes that are so creatively brutal. It’s all incredibly entertaining.

    8/10.
