John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum continues the adventures of the World’s Most feared assassin, the Baba Yaga, John Wick. When last we saw the reluctant killer, he was declared EXCOMUNICADO by the order of assassins (The High Table?) and was given a one hour reprieve before essentially every killer in the world would be able to act on an astronomical bounty placed on his head.
Keanu Reeves plays William Foster, a brilliant researcher on the verge of transferring human memories into an artificial brain, though so far, his subjects have violently rejected their new robotic bodies.
You never know with Keanu Reeves, he’s been in some great genre films and others well not so much and he as an actor is very hit and miss his’ laid back approach sometimes really pays off and others he seems really miscast. This film also kind of reminded me of Presumed Innocent for some reason.
A very good sequel that holds up well to the original and at no point do you detect within the characters “we’re back, bigger and louder and cockier than ever”
