“John Wick 3: Parabellum”

WARNING: Quite a bit of gore. Not for the light of heart.

This thrill ride of a film erupts from the gate like a shot and doesn’t let off the gas until the credits roll. The variation of fighting styles was a nice touch, that I didn’t really catch on to until the third act. They showcase different strengths with each oncoming scene and do some of the best world-building outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I felt transported back in time to the classic “Game of Death” finale, as Wick must take out wave after wave of highly trained assassins with his signature headshots and martial arts. The characters all develop further levels to their characters, and the underground (or, under table) world of assassins takes shape as the movie moves along, but none of it bogs down the non-stop action. A feat in and of itself. I was also pleasantly surprised that they were able to shoehorn in a pretty kick-ass explanation of the film’s title. A definite must-see for anyone looking for one of the best action movies of the year!
