Good ganster type film. Nice to see Keanu Reeves in action again.

Great action movie, feels like a film noir in parts. Great supporting actors.

i agree with the last comment. check your brain at the door. this is such a stupid premise and story. but lots of shooting and action

Non-stop action as the anti-hero demands justice for Daisy. Great Friday night movie as long as you check your brain at the door.

Such bang-bang, shoot-"em-up-violence. This guy is angry. If you can get into the rip-roaring guns & violence, you'll enjoy this film. This new kind of anti-hero is so predictable. Reeves steps into the shoes of this guy, and does him justice.
The fiction part of it comes when all these gun shots happen, and no police come. And when they do come, the tell the lead to take care.
Like I said, Bang, bang, shoot-'em- up! But I enjoyed it. Gangsters, drama, violence, revenge. Didn't see the first one yet.

This movie was full of action, violence, and drama. Can't really watch Reeves without thinking of Bill and Ted's Big Adventure, regardless of how much facial hair he has. Party On Dudes!

This is really a well done B-movie...tight action...gun and fight scenes are 1st rate...good direction, good acting by all the cast...reminds me of the Donald Siegel directed movies...try to see the movie Charley Varrick, a classic crime film....4 stars for John Wick

Gorgeous cinematography makes this slightly snarky action movie shine. The fight scenes are breathtaking, and there are A LOT of them, so settle in for a blood soaked good time.

This movie is about a dark underworld. very violent but well acted and good shooting scenes. Interesting underworld. I thought Hollywood was anti gun?

This is a action movie, so don't expect too much like from drama type. The action is great !
The fight action is sequential and good to watch, unlike others movies that is one against one at a time. Keanu Reeves must have put lots of efforts of practicing the fight scenes. for this genre, I prefer him over others hollywood action movie stars. Enjoy.

I’d call John Wick a pretty good movie. The movie follows the protagonist John Wick as he takes revenge on an entire mobster organization. Although the movie John Wick doesn’t have an amazing plot or great dialogue, it makes up for it’s brilliant one of a kind action scenes. You can tell just by watching that the fight scenes are well done. All the fighting techniques John uses have some realism to them and aren’t just fake moves made up by Hollywood. Even the way he shoots has a technique (center axis relock). I’ve honestly re-watched this movie several times just for the action scenes. Other than that, the soundtrack, cinematography, etc. are all pretty well done. If you’re a fan of action, violence, guns and martial arts you might want to check this movie out. I think I’d give this film a 3.5/5.

Viggo Tarasov (to his son): John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about.

Viggo Tarasov: It's not what you did, son, that angers me so. It's who you did it to.

Iosef Tarasov: Who? That fucking nobody?

Viggo Tarasov: That "fuckin' nobody"... is John Wick.

Tarasov (on phone): John? Is that you, John? John? Can't we discuss this like civilized men? {click}
Henchman: What did he say?
Tarasov: Enough.

Viggo: John will come for you and you will do nothing, because you can't do nothing.

Viggo: People don't change. Times do.

Wick: You can either hand over your son, or you can die screaming next to him!

Viggo: John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He's the one you sent to kill the xyzking boogeyman.
