'John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum' review
There is a poetic coda to 'John Wick Chapter 2'; which sets the thrilling agenda for the third entry in what must be, pound for pound, the pinnacle of action cinema. Our hero, the perpetually zen merchant of death John Wick (Keanu Reeves) has just been made aware he has an hour until an open contract is put on his head and all the worlds assassins are on his trail. His response: “tell them, tell them all. Whoever comes, whoever it is, I'll kill them. I'll kill them all". This feels like a line from the most violent children’s book ever written. But it's an iambic declaration of violence from a man set to make his last stand.
