"John Wick" Review | Movie Monday
John Wick is a fast-paced, action-packed film. So many factors work together to make this film as awesome as it is: the performances, choreography, cinematography...and so much more.
Keanu Reeves gives an excellent performance as the title character. He's really scary and impassioned - the word "intense" is the best word to describe him in this film. Do NOT mess with John Wick. He'll shoot you.
The stunt choreography was fantastic - and there was a lot of it. A lot of the movie involved fight scenes and most of them were so much fun to watch because of the choreography - it's so creative and complicated. A few times, I found myself marveling at how much practice it must have taken for the actors to get the scenes right.
I also love the look of the film - it's very dark and gritty and very much reminds me of a graphic novel. The lighting is really well done - the night scenes (majority of the film) have blue undertones that enhance the grit in the best way possible.
If you're looking for a film with lots of action and intensity, then look no further. John Wick is just what you need.
