Set to be released — or should that be unleashed — in the UK on May 15 and the US May 17, John Wick.

Chapter 3 – Parabellum is barking mad. And not just because there are even more dogs thrown into the mix part. The series started with soulful murderer John Wick Chapter 3 grieving his dead pet.

John Wick 3 Mull Movie

John Wick 3 picks up moments after the end of the second movie. With Keanu Reeves’ hitman on the run from his shadowy masters. And this threequel wastes little time in getting into the thick of it — Parabellum moves at breakneck speed as Wick escapes his pursuers.

From here Wick rushes from one violent confrontation to the next. Newcomers Anjelica Huston and Jerome Flynn (Bron from Game of Thrones). Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick also reprise their roles. These heavyweight actors bring gravitas and add depth to the ludicrous lore, chewing plenty of scenery as they steer Wick to the next action sequence.

John Wick Chapter 3

It’s a pretty straightforward formula, but let’s be honest. You come to a movie like this for intense action, and John Wick Chapter 3 certainly does not disappoint. An early scene sees Wick making human pincushions out of some goons and that’s just the start of countless darkly satisfying moments.

And then there’s those homicidal hounds. We jump from one ambitious set piece to another, widening the scope of Wick’s World from New York to a stunningly realized Casablanca, where Halle Berry proves her action chops in some of the movie’s best sequences. Watch out for those dogs! Sadly, Berry doesn’t stick around long enough.

It’s a series trademark that the action is always clearly visible. The kinetic camera work carries us smoothly along for the ride. Full of audacious uninterrupted shots showing off the athleticism of Reeves and the stuntmen.

The climactic battle has some pretty magnificent buildup with an excellent shootout, but the final hand-to-hand fight outstays its welcome a little. You’ll laugh and cringe at the shocking violence, but may find yourself feeling a bit numb by the time it’s over.

Luckily, the series’ world and backstory is as fascinating as ever John Wick order of assassins. Has a violent code of honor that’s enforced with plenty of dark humor. Dressed up in evocative rich quasi-religious language.

Parabellum twists and turns dizzyingly as characters’ alliances shift. So things never get too comfortable as the action unfolds with breakneck momentum.
Come ready to lean into John Wick Chapter 3 silly drama. And you’ll have a blast during this riotous celebration of action cinema.
