It has been nearly four years since we last got a John Wick movie but no need to worry, as news around the block suggests the new chapter is on its way and the movie critics are super impressed with what they have seen so far.
The popular hitman known for his precise headshot kills and massive body count within the franchise is soon hitting the cinema but what has impressed the fans, even more, is that critics who got access to a private screening of the movie are saying a lot of good things about the movie.
It seems the fans are definitely going to get what they deserve after critics gave their bewildering opinions about the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4, with many saying it’s really good and can’t wait to see it hit the big screen soon. Of course, our beloved Keanu Reeves is returning for the fourth franchise as Mr Wick.
After facing multiple delays, John Wick: Chapter 4 is finally set to hit the theatres at the end of the month, with Chad Stahelski returning to direct with co-writers Shay Hatten and Michael Finch bringing a new vibe to the John Wick franchise as we get to see him fight against the deadly High Table.
The critics are referring to the fourth instalment of the movie as one of the best action movie franchises that have screened, and audiences are hitting up social media with their first reactions.
The trailer for John Wick: Chapter 4 promises a high body count, with awesome fight scenes and a glorious battle with the High Table which seeks to destroy and hunt down Wick at all costs for betraying its rules. The movie is also adding new stars like Indie singer Rina Sawayama playing the role of Akira, with Bill Skarsgård also making his franchise debut.
Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick reprise their roles from previous instalments. We are also getting other cool stars like Donnie Yen and Scott Adkins to spice things up. Here’s what people are saying about the movie, starting with CinemaBlend’s Eric Eisenberg:
I had reservations about John Wick: Chapter 4’s nearly three-hour runtime, but the movie earns it. It’s an epic with smart pacing that never lets the action feel exhausting, and the set pieces are phenomenal. Great cast of series newcomers, but Donnie Yen is the MVP. – Eric Eisenberg
#JohnWick4 continues with the visceral and brutal action. We finally get the conclusion to the story, and the film brings the action to a higher level with armored ninja, fiery weapons, epic one-shot scenes, and more. Donnie Yen is definitely icing on the cake. – John Nguyen
Brawny, bold & badass, #JohnWick4 brilliantly balances vested stakes with an absolutely spectacular, high octane thrill ride. A soaring, searing, scorching chapter in the saga. The wildest time you’ll have at the movies this year. A pure adrenaline rush. – Courtney Howard
Lead actor Keanu Reeves also went ahead to give praise and respect to the fourth instalment saying that the movie is the “hardest film I’ve ever made,” in terms of the action. Well, if Mr Wick himself approves, then who are we to complain? 😀 😀 With such reactions, it’s no surprise that John Wick 5 is already in the works, including a spin-off titled Ballerina which will be revealed soon.
John Wick: Chapter 4 arrives in the theatres on Friday, March 24.
