John Wick has become the new Chuck Norris, and this third film highlights the potential of a character who will become an action film classic.
"John Wick 3: Parabellum" is the continuation of this iconic action film character and leaves only a few minutes after the end of "John Wick 2: A New Day to Kill" , where Wick , persecuted and excommunicated for having broken the killers code, you need to look for allies, because the High Table , the most important league of killers in the world, wants your head, which they have valued at 14 million dollars.
Three years after having released the last part of this saga, the legendary murderer John Wick returns and does it with force, in a film that seems to be a whole ode to action movies, especially to that violent cinema where there is shooting , blood and corpses left and right. Keanu Reeves repeats this role that the public has liked so much, and which is one of the most outstanding of his career, so it should be noted that the years still seem to have gone unnoticed by the actor, who gets into the skin of an agile assassin, swift and intrepid as if it would not cost him a hair to do it.
Although the film is more made for the fans of the character and of this particular cinematographic genre, the truth is that it is a work of art where violence and action stand out as something that the expert critics have baptized as "an elegant excess of violence " , because despite the fact that from head to toe we do not stop seeing knives, weapons, shots, fights and very explicit violence, it is not saturated, nor terribly excessive. For John Wick , this excess works in a very specific formula that has given him success since his first film.
If you are a fan of this genre , where the action sequences are scandalous, the scenes of violence have pirouettes and present a thousand different ways to end "the bad guys", this is the movie you need to see, because at no time it becomes bland , boring or too spoken, although in this film we have a little more context on the character of John Wick itself, something that in the previous films has not been much deepened, and that ends up being thanked to know a little more the reasons that move John, in addition to revenge .
A guarantee of this tape is that it has already managed to unseat "Avengers: Endgame" at the US and Canadian box office, achieving a collection of more than 57 million in its first weekend in theaters.
If you do not like action movies a lot, do not even think about watching this movie because it's not for you, you'll leave very disoriented and saturated by all the feast of action and violence that occurs in this film. However, if you are willing to give it a try , it is a true work of art within its genre.
"John Wick 3: Parabellum" has turned its protagonist into a symbol of action cinema and also an icon of current cinema . You can not miss this third part in theaters as of May 17.
