I wonder, could they have came with a better name than 'Wick' tongue.gif

Because it rhymes with 'Week' or 'Weak' laugh.gif

wick1
wik/Submit
noun
1.
a strip of porous material up which liquid fuel is drawn by capillary action to the flame in a candle, lamp, or lighter.

Movie's tagline is 'Don't set him off'.

Basically a play on words. Keanu's a bomb with a fuse/wick bla bla bla.

Dah tgk. Mmg shoot 'em up straight from start to finish. Dumb mafia son pergi curik keta John Wick and kill his dog. After that dont close ur eyes, dont even blink. Non stop shooting. Keanu's pace and action style, selamba headshot, xckp banyak.

If there's one thing i've learned from watching Keanu's movies..
1. he's so obsessed with kungfu (watch his Man of Tai Chi movie)
2. he loves gun fights
3. he is the one @ Neo

John Wick - Master of headshot
It's a very enjoyable action flick. Really like how they establish an underworld society where you hire cleaners to take care of corpses and a santuary hotel for nefarious individual. They deals in mysterious gold coin currency. While Keanu provides the badassery of "gun-fu-ing" headshots left and right, there are enough impressive "actors" to drive the story forward.Especially Michael Nyqvist providing a pretty effective mob boss. Wish they can make another movie within this John Wick world. The action sequences are refreshing and efficient where you able to follow clearly who doing what.

i see it as a proficient gun user who is accurate at getting head shot. not gun-fu. try and watch equilibrium the movie gun-fu like dancing... pretty elegant..

Thought equilibrium\ultraviolet uses gun-kata as coined by the director.Gun-fu just over generalization of gunplay and martial arts combine together.It was never specifically defined to any specific style.The term originate from John Woo movies as a homage to HK action films.Again it's my opinion la and also how the movie being marketed!Not a fan of technicalities. tongue.gif

hehe.. but to be honest, i much prefer the gun-kata in equilibrium than ultraviolet.. can feel the lethalness of gun kata while ultraviolet was like way too flowery movements... anyhow i still enjoy John Wick nonetheless...

John Wick (2014)

There is something very old school about this movie.

And I don't mean 1980s old school, further back then that. Back to when Warner Brothers were churning out a lot of Gangster movies...

I don't know why, the feeling of this movie is a throw back to that period... Gangster/Film Noir-ishness.

And IT IS GREAT!!!!

AS of yesterday, I have watched 3 moths in the past three weeks and all three movies are GREAT!!!

Okay, back to this movie, how throw back is this movie, if this movie was a silent movie, the context of the movie would still have been CLEAR!!!

Don't get me wrong, when I say old school does it mean this movie is not violent, Far from it!!

There aren't any good guys here!

There are just people with/without code of conduct!!!

Go watch this.

I cannot emphasize this move, GO WATCH THIS!!
