John Wick

Critics Consensus

Stylish, thrilling, and giddily kinetic, John Wick serves as a satisfying return to action for Keanu Reeves -- and what looks like it could be the first of a franchise.

  • John Wick works because of its sleek, artisanal dovetailing of style and sincerity.

  • Its saving grace is the sheer operatic excess of the bloodletting.

  • Just when you have all but given up hope for Keanu Reeves... there comes the hyper-stylised revenge movie John Wick. And you remember what you loved about him in the first place.

  • A pretty humourless and violent film, which grinds on and on with more and more gleaming black SUVs getting trashed.

    Apr 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's not perfect. But it is special, especially for a mid-budget Hollywood action drama, and it has stuck firmly in my mind since that late-night screening last Friday.

  • Stahelski and Leitch, both former stunt men, unsurprisingly tackle action sequences with glee... but the quieter scenes are more sophisticated, incorporating a sense of fantasy and visual splendor that almost makes the wafer-thin plot feel fresh.

    The comic book plot might be an insult to comic books. The video game violence is an insult to anyone seeking some credulity to a killer offing multiple people without knowing what he is up against. It's not an awful movie. Not at all. It's popularity is a testament to that. But, there's so many opportunities missed for the filmmakers to say something about its thinly developed themes.

    For those who like Taken and its sequels, here is a much more stylish, gripping and smart action movie that boasts an awesome soundtrack, thrilling fight scenes and a badass Keanu Reeves shooting, kicking and proving that he can be an action movie star like few others.

    Boring, violent crap. Who enjoys this s€+t? Not me, I like an actual story, not just non stop mindless fighting.

    In a market saturated with special effects, explosions, and quick-cut editing, John Wick breaks every Hollywood stereotype. The two stuntment who directed have clear respect for tight and swift choreography, and it's incredibly satisfying to see unfold. Keanu Reeves' physical talents are on full display here, and he leaves a blazing trail of violence and physicality that brings him back into the realm of quality cinema.
