When sadistic young thugs senselessly attack a brilliantly lethal ex-assassin, they have no idea that they've just awakened the boogeyman. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, Wick embarks on a merciless rampage, hunting down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend.

Such bang-bang, shoot-"em-up-violence. This guy is angry. If you can get into the rip-roaring guns & violence, you'll enjoy this film. This new kind of anti-hero is so predictable. Reeves steps into the shoes of this guy, and does him justice.
The fiction part of it comes when all these gun shots happen, and no police come. And when they do come, the tell the lead to take care.
Like I said, Bang, bang, shoot-'em- up! But I enjoyed it. Gangsters, drama, violence, revenge. Didn't see the first one yet.

This movie was full of action, violence, and drama. Can't really watch Reeves without thinking of Bill and Ted's Big Adventure, regardless of how much facial hair he has. Party On Dudes!

This is really a well done B-movie...tight action...gun and fight scenes are 1st rate...good direction, good acting by all the cast...reminds me of the Donald Siegel directed movies...try to see the movie Charley Varrick, a classic crime film....4 stars for John Wick

Gorgeous cinematography makes this slightly snarky action movie shine. The fight scenes are breathtaking, and there are A LOT of them, so settle in for a blood soaked good time.

This movie is about a dark underworld. very violent but well acted and good shooting scenes. Interesting underworld. I thought Hollywood was anti gun?

This is a action movie, so don't expect too much like from drama type. The action is great !
The fight action is sequential and good to watch, unlike others movies that is one against one at a time. Keanu Reeves must have put lots of efforts of practicing the fight scenes. for this genre, I prefer him over others hollywood action movie stars. Enjoy.

I’d call John Wick a pretty good movie. The movie follows the protagonist John Wick as he takes revenge on an entire mobster organization. Although the movie John Wick doesn’t have an amazing plot or great dialogue, it makes up for it’s brilliant one of a kind action scenes. You can tell just by watching that the fight scenes are well done. All the fighting techniques John uses have some realism to them and aren’t just fake moves made up by Hollywood. Even the way he shoots has a technique (center axis relock). I’ve honestly re-watched this movie several times just for the action scenes. Other than that, the soundtrack, cinematography, etc. are all pretty well done. If you’re a fan of action, violence, guns and martial arts you might want to check this movie out. I think I’d give this film a 3.5/5.

that's movie is special - it is dumbest movie I ever seen
no kidding - bad guys did kill one dog, so as a result some around 400 people were killed
those bad guys instead of killing the dog should kill John Wick, which will shorten the movie and save all guys and of course lots of damage done
so called definitely "action" movie
looks like computer game developed by some not smart folks

i took out this movie, not really knowing what it would be like. after watching for a few minutes, i got totally engrossed in the movie from start to finish. lots of violence (unfortunately) but a well done action film with keaunu reeves. am looking forward to when the sequel comes out to the theatres later this year.

Pretty lame unless you enjoy non-stop senseless violence.

Viggo: John will come for you and you will do nothing, because you can't do nothing.

Viggo: People don't change. Times do.

Wick: You can either hand over your son, or you can die screaming next to him!

Viggo: John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He's the one you sent to kill the xyzking boogeyman.
