John Wick is a movie we’ve all seen countless times before. The plot is paper thin, the characters are one dimensional and the story never surprises you. So why is this movie so much fun? Keanu Reeves is a stoic man of action who carries the film through some of the dead spots and excels in the awesome action sequences. Those action sequences are wonderfully choreographed ballets of mayhem, reminiscent of classic Hong Kong shoot em ups. Additionally, the film has a wonderful sense of humor. Regardless of the body count, it never takes it’s self overly serious. It’s the perfect kind of B movie that easily digestible and never loses track of what it’s there to do.
