John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ★★★★

Easily the weakest WICK; John's journey out of existential Hell is largely abandoned for an entire movie dedicated to writing itself out of the cliffhanger from the last one. But nobody's shooting action like this: the clean display of athleticism, the sheer vicious glee of the violence, the truly dazzling use of color and cornball symbolism. I'd love it if the part 4 that this is so clearly promising ditched the mythology and went back to basics, but I'd be lying if I said this wasn't an absolute blast.
