That’s exactly what it was supposed to be, and it succeeded in every aspect.
It looked great, fight scenes were thrilling, none of the shaky cam or anything like that, what you saw was what you got.
Not every movie needs to be The Shawshank Redemption or One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, you know.
There are movies just for entertainment, and John Wick provided loads of it, it’s just an action flick, and a great one at that.
Besides, John Wick always kinda reminded me of two things : Hotline Miami and Hitman. I know that Hitman is about stealth and all that but… honestly, I don’t think it would work for neither a movie or a TV series. It needs some action, something closer to Absolution than to Silent Assassin would definitely work and I don’t think it would be a disgrace to the series.
Also, I recommend Johnny Sins for the role of 47.
