John Wick


Rating: R

Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Sure.

Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Probably not.

Language: More f-bombs than I have fingers and toes. Also a sprinkling of milder language as well.

Sex/Romance: None.

Violence/Gore: A large amount of both.

Music: They had some good beats.

Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterward? : No.

Thoughts: I was surprised by how average this movie was. I guess I bought into the hype too much. While they did do some interesting things with music, color, and subtitles, at the end of the day they was just yet another "man gets revenge in bloody fashion" story that had only the barest hint of a twist on this common theme and also WAS AN UNFINISHED STORY. I get setting a movie up for a sequel, but you don't just leave the main story unfinished. You finish the story you set up and then leave it open or intimate the beginning of a new story, or whatever, but you don't just leave your viewers unsatisfied because you want more money.

Was this a good use of a night to myself? : Meh.

In the End: 3 out of 5 stars. As much as I used to love it, this formula is starting to get a bit old.
