This weekend it’s “John Wick 3: Parabellum”. If your friends don’t know who Wick is you best go tell ’em!
Parabellum means prepare for war, by the way, and that’s what the the two previous movies have been all about. The first was a surprise hit, where the former assassin tangles with a group of thugs over a car and they make the mistake of not only following him home to get the jump on him in the middle of the night but they kill his dog in the process.
What followed was two hours of outstanding violence all in honor of a slain man’s best friend. Awesome, right?
Wick two picked up where that film left off, but three finds John paired up with Halle Berry, his only ally, and one just as skilled as he when it comes to hand to hand combat and weaponry.
There’s a bounty on Wick’s head so Berry’s got her work cut out for her. And rumor has it maybe even a spin-off.
These are some of the best fight scenes ever seen on the big screen. In my opinion Keanu Reeves now has a better trilogy on his resume than “The Matrix,” and that’s saying something. But we still have that third “Bill and Ted” movie coming so the Wick trilogy might only hold the title for so long.
It’s rated R…for righteous.
