John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2 aren’t just good action movies – they’re perfect action movies. And they’re more than that – they’re great movies, filled with character and humor and detail that rewards careful consideration and thought. They also feature Keanu Reeves shooting so many people in the face, but that’s just the appetizer. Come for the violence (and there’s plenty of that), but linger for two of the most magical and beautifully realized genre movies of all time. So let’s take a deep dive into these movies and dissect them.

‘John Wick 3’: Everything We Know So Far Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film.

'John Wick: Chapter 2' Review: Second Verse, Just as Good as the First In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor. Continue reading…

‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ Is A Skull-Shattering Sequel Determined To Outdo The Original Lionsgate The Russians call him “Baba Yaga, meaning “Boogeyman,” an assassin who moves in and out of the shadows, striking with terrible certainty. But that mythical language implies a ghostly immortality that doesn’t quite capture the essence of John Wick. John Wick isn’t a sniper who picks off targets from hundreds of yards away and he isn’t the type to slip into a room and twist a blade without anyone spotting him. His true modus operandi is shooting dozens upon dozens upon dozens of henchman in the head, usually at point blank range.

John Wick has both barrells ready to go in new poster Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year for action buffs, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 will reunite us with our beloved Keanu Reeves as he brings John Wick back for more ass-kickery. It’s already one of the most anticipated by the Joblo staff (see video below), and though the movie comes out next week there’s still plenty to get excited about, like this new poster. Most of the posters have... Read More...

A handful of new images will get you pumped for John Wick: Chapter Two I don't know about the rest of you, but JOHN WICK: CHAPTER TWO is definitely on my list of my most anticipated movies of 2017. I foolishly didn't expect much from the first JOHN WICK, but the colourful hard-hitting action absolutely made me a believer and I've been looking forward to seeing John Wick (Keanu Reeves) kill just about everyone ever since the sequel was first...

Headshots and Trumpets Abound in This 'John Wick' Supercut There’s nothing quite as much fun as a perfectly conceived and executed supercut. Whether it’s a compilation of movie scenes where Nic Cage loses his mind or a movie dialogue version of one of Lionel Richie’s classic songs, a good supercut is the perfect piece of digital ephemera for movie lovers everywhere. And while most supercuts are fan-made labors of love, at least one studio has noticed the attention given to them and planned its marketing accordingly. So it was that the John Wick ‘Symphony of Violence’ supercut was given unto us, and it was very, very good. Continue reading…

John Wick will deliver head shots in comic form with his own series Along with giving us the puppy-avenging, suit-wearing action hero for the modern age, JOHN WICK offered a glimpse into a deep, imaginative world of assassins seemingly ripped out of a comic book. But anyone looking for some kind of comic book or graphic novel depicting our hero would be left on the floor to cry themelves to sleep. Those days are coming to an end, though, as anyone wanting to... Read More...

Deadpool 2 Gets John Wick Director David Leitch John Wick director David Leitch beat out top contenders like Drew Goddard to direct the highly-anticipated Deadpool 2 for 20th Century Fox.

Deadpool 2 Gets Two More Directors For The Running Yesterday I talked about how David Leitch was supposedly the front runner to direct Deadpool 2, but that there were other directos in the mix. Well, seems like who know who the others in the mix are. Deadline are reporting the Cabin in the Woods director, as well as Daredevil and The Martian writer, Drew Goddard has pitched for the film. It is also said the Luke Cage and Agents of Shield director Magnus Martens has done the same. While Leitch would bring an action pedigree to the film, Goddard and Martens would bring genre and superhero clout.
