DirkH’s review published on Letterboxd:
What do you write about a film that is exactly what it is, without pretense?
Not too much:
- Wick is slick.
- Reeves has almost no lines.
- ^ this is a good thing.
- Reeves is 50 years old.
- ^ WTF?
- John Wick is the best comic book adaptation of something that was never a comic book.
- Wick's Bitch.
- ^ sadface
- John Wick is the best video game adaptation of something that was never a video game.
- ^ Apparently John Wick will become a playable character in Payday 2. Rumours say that motion capturing Reeves' face was the cheapest job ever.
- 15 minutes less and this would have been just about perfect.
- Michael Nyqvist is absolutely hilarious.
- John Wick has about twenty moments of 'John Wick walking away with gritty guitar music playing in the background'.
- This is also a good thing and would make for a great drinking game.
Yep. That's about it.
