John Wick

Year : 2014 Director : Chad Stahelski and David Leitch Running Time : 1hr 43min Genre : , ,
Movie review score
7/10

I will admit, John Wick is not as good of a movie as everyone says. The acting and dialogue is bad. It should be expected from Keanu Reeves and Willem Dafoe. But this is one of the most important movies of the 2010s. I kept it at a 7 because it is so influential to the action genre.

Before this movie, most action films had the style of the Bourne Ultimatum, shaky cam and quick shots galore. But this movie, directed by stunt men, is so well choreographed and shot that uses realism and long shots in their action. I mean, John Wick reloads in the film if that tells you anything. It has steady wide shots that shows the full action, it appears slow but you get to see every strike and gunshot hitting every villain.

This movie has changed the face of the action game forever. Films like atomic blonde are heavily influenced by John Wick. The world building that John Wick has prompted action films to follow in its footsteps. This movie is a must see for any action movie fan, it will show you where a lot of your favorite movie draw inspiration from.
