JOHN WICK (2014) – My rating: 7.5/10

JohnWickIs Hollywood running out of themes, plots and ideas?  Another bad ass comes out of retirement to kill, kill, kill.  The reason is usually because some family member (mostly the wife and/or kid) is killed or wronged somehow and vengeance is mine, saith who?  Bruce Willis, Denzel Washington, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford to name a few.  The other scenario is the country can’t survive without this former agent’s skill base.  John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves,  was very entertaining but nothing new.  I think John Wick may have piled up more bodies than anyone else but it was that familiar violence of a killing machine that no one can catch or stop.  So there you have it, after hearing the plot, you just have to sit back and enjoy all the killing.  There’s lots of action and many different ways to kill someone but overall, it consist of the plot and the kill.  BTW:  It was John Wick against the Russians.  I was not bored or disgusted with the dialogue, nor was I feeling like walking out, but I did feel like I’ve been here before, maybe a few times too many.  John Wick is a pretty good movie despite the familiarity.  However, no one would be upset if you wait for the DVD.
