Verdict – 4/5
1) In the universe of Ethan Hunt, Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne, Jack Ryan, James Bond etc. the aura of John Wick prevails thanks to blade-sharp quotes and long shot action sequences without cut.
2) The movie in the second half gave enough easter-eggs for conspiracy theorists to consider John Wick to be a secret sequel to The Matrix. And why not – Sleek organisation like The Continental, Winston stopping everyone in the park as it was a simulation, and of course Morpheus.
3) 3 super gun-action sequences – Catacombs, Subway and Mirror-Room
4) Presence of Franco Nero
John Wick: Do you want a war or do you want to just give me a gun?
The Bowery King: Somebody please get this man a gun!
