John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum: my review
John Wick is back for the third time. Is it still impressive as in the previous two chapters? Read our review of the movie John Wick 3.
Often, the creators, when filming the third part of the hit, come to the idea that maybe you do not have to strain, because the viewers will go to the cinemas anyway. So they let go of details and they go the easiest way, with a low effort to bring top money out of box offic. Fortunately, the team responsible for the adventures of John Wick does not think so. They care about their fans. And if they decided that the next scene should be more crazy and spectacular from the previous two, they did not lose the climate for which viewers loved these films. So John has to fight for survival, because he was given a huge prize for his head. There is no time to rest. That’s the way to handle this.
The plot of the movie John Wick 3 can be placed on one A4 sheet. So what? It is not for the plot to watch this series, but for stunt shows. Keanu Reeves, in the role of the title killer, performs the majority of choreography and does it flawlessly. I am convinced that Tom Cruise is watching this movie only with envy, because his performances in Mission Impossible are children’s fun. The stuntmen replacing Reeves did not overwork. This approach of the actor to this project pays off with each part. Thanks to this, Wick is very convincing in the fight scenes. It does not lose momentum. We see pain and suffering on his face, and that’s because the choreography is long and has not been interrupted by cuts. Everything is recorded here at one time. If someone makes a mistake, he or she really gets a blow in the body or head and it will pay a nice bruise, or the entire system goes to the patch. Therefore, if in some scenes it seems to you that John is tired after the fight, it really is, because Keanu was on the set once again wypruty with energy.
But not only choreographers should be applauded. Both the operator Dan Laustsen, whose photographs are simply amazing, as well as composers of the soundtrack, Joel J. Richard and Tyler Bates, take this film to an even higher level. New York presents itself darkly and even more insignificantly than recently. Even watching him in the rain, we feel like going there. This city captivates with its beauty and architecture.
You can see that the creators think not only about the series of films, but about serials that are to expand this deadly universe. There is already a series of stories about what is happening at the Continental Hotel, John will also join Fortnite at any moment, we also have comics about his adventures, and probably some of the supporting characters will get their own movie. Exactly, because new characters appear to us more and more. Some of them captivate with their originality, but there are also those that bother you. Feel that their appearance is forced by further plans of the creators. So this time on the screen we will see beautiful Halle Berry as Sofie, Laurence Fishburne as King Bowery or Asia Kate Dillon as Spokeswoman. Each of these characters brings a lot to this world. Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are also returning to their roles, without which this series could not do without.
There is nothing to hide, it is not the last word of John and we will probably see him as often as the team of Fast and the Furious. If the creators do not lower the level, I will always welcome Wick with open arms. John Wick 3 is great fun in the atmosphere of old action movies.
