    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    By far the messiest entry to the franchise, with the action not quite on par with the previous films. The choreography is all there, the shots are all there, but something about the energy and overall presentation has gone through a drop in quality, not to mention the world has grown at too fast a rate for explanation to occur.

    The script’s attention to detail, the nuanced message of the film, all of it is perfect. This is what Star Wars films should aspire to be, unlike those  CGI-plagued Prequels where nothing feels real and the acting is wooden. In here you can truly get involved in the universe due to the originality of the story and how it so perfectly subverts your expectations. All the questions The Force Awakens (another great Star Wars film) asked are…
