The trailer has just arrived for the latest instalment in the John Wick franchise, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum
Keanu Reeves is back again as everyone’s favourite dog-loving assassin. In the third instalment, officially titled John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Mr Wick finds out that a huge contract has been put on his life and that an elite group of assassins will stop at nothing until the bounty is filled.
One thing I did notice from the trailer was the use of samurai swords and motorbikes. I have to say, I am more than unimpressed by this, it’s so obviously a rip-off of South Korean actioner The Villainess. Okay, so we only got a glimpse of that scene, so who knows, I may be wrong but I guarantee you I am not the only one who thought this when watching it.
The reason I mention this is because of the fighting and action. The whole choreography of John Wick is superb. It’s creative, fast and brutal and makes Reeves look like a total bad-ass. It’s the main fuel for the story in any of the John Wick movies. I’m a little worried that they now seem to be borrowing action sequences from Asian movies. Are they trying to fill some creative void?. I guess time will tell.
OFFICIAL PLOT (Google)
In this third instalment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum hits cinemas in May 17th 2019.
Here’s the trailer. I hope you enjoy.
For those of you that can’t wait until May for some assassin action
You might want to check out the new Netflix original movie, Polar which hits our screen this month. It stars Mads Mikkelsen as a retired hitman who is forced out of retirement by a group of young assassins who want him dead. It’s just like John Wick, only with Mads Mikkelsen and that sounds more than perfect to me.
As always, thanks for reading.
