Excommunicado from the High Table, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) finds himself in a race against death with a 14 million dollar bounty on his head. Meanwhile, the High Table has launched an investigation of their own into the shady dealings at the Continental Hotel leaving Winston (Ian McShane) and Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) exposed and soon to be replaced. It’ll be an all out bloodbath as wrongs are righted and for John Wick to return to the good graces of the High Table, if that’s even possible. Directed by Chad Stahelski and Written by Derek Solstad, Shay Hatten, Chris Collins, and Marc Abrams, this latest installment continues the reign of blood much the way the previous two films have showered audiences with a hedonistic taste for ultra violence. And let’s face it, if you’ve followed along so far, you know the drill, amped up waves of aggression, pithy one liners, and kill shot after kill shot after skull splitting kill shot, all conveniently packaged into a two hour and ten minute window, which does feel a bit on the long side by the umpteenth shotgun blast to the head, but who’s counting? Well thought out scenarios, solid execution of fight choreography, and sharp cinematography keep this whirlwind of disaster right on track and we want to ride this pain train all the way to the bitter end of the line. A bit desensitizing when the wheels eventually screech to a halt, none the less, if this is your bag baby, run with it like it’s stolen. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is rated R…for obvious reasons.
