John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019).
A rare trip to the cinema!
So. I think that it is important for me to note here that as far as I was concerned, the world did not need a third John Wick movie. In fact, as far as I was concerned, the world did not need a second John Wick movie either.
John Wick was, in and of itself, quite perfect when self-contained.
Just like Dune.
But now I digress. It is moot for me to debate the existence of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum when it clearly does exist. This movie certainly embraces the art of the set-piece.
It moves with ease from one lavishly described fight scene to the next in a new and totally contrasting location to the next to the next to the next.
It contains perhaps one or two fight scenes too many, and not quite enough of the delight that Mark Dacascos brings to his character. I now dutifully await Chapter 4 – Hell’s Aquarium. (Just kidding. That’s a Meg sequel in the waiting…)
