I’ve gotta say, I disagree with RunPee Dan’s John Wick 3 review on Parabellum. Some of what he says holds true with the choreography and perhaps the length of the film. But I didn’t get bored with the action.
Very light, vague John Wick Parabellum spoilers lie ahead…
The end of the second Wick movie set the tone for this one, and I feel we got what was teased. EVERYONE is after this man and his bounty._
The action is intense and has plenty of humor mixed in. Especially from Sofia’s attack dogs.
But then here’s where The Matrix seeps in.
Neo…I mean John Wick…is on a mission to clear his Excommunicado with the High Table.
The High Table is determined to clear the board of what they perceive as weakness. The Man that sits above the table is inclined to give The One…I mean Wick…his chance at redemption — at a cost.
And Morpheus…I mean, The King…seems to be setting up the next chapter, with a fair bit of visual humor at the end of the film.
Loyalty and betrayal, determination and doubt.
“If you want peace, prepare for war.”
The Baba Yaga is coming, Parabellum.
