Anyone caught off guard by the flippancy in which John Wick shoots, stabs, or bodyslams endless henchmen to their violent death must not have been paying attention to his backstory; this is the man who you hire to kill the Boogeyman. A man who once killed three men in a bar, with a pencil. Rumors are it wasn't even sharpened.
John Wick was the surprising hit of 2014, its unabashed, murderous gun fu action driven forward by #KeanuReeves's no-nonsense comeback to the action genre. This is action on steroids, a B-movie-inspired, neo-noir thriller whose protagonist makes Schwarzenegger look like a pacifist. But that's what happens when you kill the world's most dangerous hitman's puppy.
