Rob’s Quick Review: John Wick

John Wick on Cinedraft.com
Letter Grade:

The Good:

Shane Black-like writing

The Bad:

They try to get a little too cute with the subtitles.
Doesn't quite understand the physics of the timing of lightning and thunder.

Cast & Crew:

Director: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch
Writer: Derek Kolstad
Stars:Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki

John Wick is a stylish, fast-paced take on the revenge action genre. It’s very well written, interlacing funny moments into the action sequences, reminding me of the best of Shane Black’s writing. I don’t quite understand the decision to go and seemingly randomly bold and colorize certain words in the subtitles.

New Trailer: 47 Ronin

I, unlike a lot of folks (it seems), am not a Keanu hater. That being said, this could be end up being tragic.  The release of this movie has already been postponed twice, and this is Director Carl Rinsch’s first feature length film. This story is based on the actually Forty-seven Ronin, but it is an extremely fantastical take.  It appears to be a bit 300 and a bit The Last Samurai, both of which I enjoyed so, I am at least reasonably intrigued.
