What’s the story?
The John Wick series has managed to bring in quite a lot of fans and that’s mostly thanks to the Keanu Reeves comeback and the great action presented in it. When you see a movie like John Wick you just get into it for the action and fun, and not for the story. Yet John Wick: Chapter 3 and all the others beforehand actually managed to bring in some exciting ideas to the table and it really is very exciting and distinctive, to say the least.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is bringing in even more action because our titular character is now on the hunt with $14 million offered for his capture. The fact that he assassinated Santino D’Antonio in the Continental is quite the problem since John Wick is now banned from every Continental service.
Now what he has to do is to find his out of the city thanks to a hitwoman, she is the only person still trusting him right now. Apparently the premise of the film is based on a quote from the 4Th century, If you want Peace, Prepare for War. And that’s exactly what you can find here.
The premise of this film is light on details, but we do know is that they are not taking it easy on John Wick at all. In fact, the installment is supposed to end the John Wick trilogy, so whether our favorite character will live or die is up for debate. There are rumors that a new installment might arrive at some point, but you never really know what to expect with Keanu Reeves and his movies to begin with.
Is it any good?
Apparently there are some very hard times for our characters, and the main issue is that they are preparing us for the worst, at least that’s what it seems. That being said, John Wick did end up battling some rather unfortunate odds, so finding all of that and figuring out how to handle this entire process might be a bit of a challenge. It still goes to show that with the right approach John Wick might be able to come up on top.
Yet having everyone on his back is going to make things very problematic, to say the least. That’s why the best thing John Wick can do right now is to figure out who he can trust and whether that trust is a viable one or not. You never really know what to expect and who is trustworthy nowadays. And that’s especially true when you never know who is on your side or who will betray you.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is set to be an amazing movie and it definitely has a lot of potentials. The fact that it comes with so many intriguing ideas and an open-ended story does make it seem that we might get some sort of extension to the story. That being said, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is still action-packed and the culmination of the entire story, so it’s a must-watch for sure!
