I love action films. There is no genre of cinema that entices me more than a great action flick. It’s a genre that brings me great joy and a genre I have somewhat a good knowledge and understanding of. Its why I find recent MCU outings to be truly lacking as the action looks like a grey blur. I’m paying to see the action, so I hate it when film makers make it hard to see the action. The John Wick franchise however has been the opposite of that.
It’s a franchise that understands that clarity is the most important thing when it comes to action. So, with that it in mind its not too much of a reach to say that John Wick Chapter 4 is a masterpiece. The final 40 minutes are the definition of engaging and creative action that had my jaw hit the floor. The choreography is nothing short of masterful and the way the camera captures every moment in lushes and beautiful shot is nothing short of incredible. Keanu Reeves while doesn’t talk much is great as this character. The rest of the cast are great and contains action legends like Donnie Yen, Scott Adkins, and Hiroyuki Sanada. John Wick Chapter 4 is a must-see film, full stop. Is it debatably to long at 2 hours 50 mins? Yes and no but I wouldn’t want it any other way. This film is simple one of the best action films ever made.
