Review in Brief: John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)

I’ve never been a JOHN WICK stan (am I using that right?). I like the films just fine – the first considerably more than the second – but I don’t quite see them as the action art form that some do. CHAPTER 3 – Ridiculous Title gets even more bogged down in the series’ convoluted mythology but offers plenty in the way of creative and often hilariously OTT fight choreography. Yes, John (Keanu Reeves) has a fight with some goons in a store with bladed weapons on every wall. Yes, Halle Berry’s canine sidekicks take on goons with guns and win. Yes, those guys from THE RAID 2 really have to tangle with Keanu… But I was actually a bit disappointed by how few assassins come after John in this one considering what had been set up and how few genuine surprises there were here. Saying that, would I watch another one of these? Sure, why not? SSP
