John Wick Chapter 4: Is It Worth The Watch?

May 4, 2023

After being delayed for two years due to COVID-19, John Wick is finally out. It’s the fourth movie in the franchise, and it really picked up the slack of the last two John Wick movies which were a little underwhelming. This being said, it is recommended to watch the previous movies before watching this one.

Right off the bat, the movie continues the storyline of the last chapter, and it follows the same storyline of John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, being indestructible. Just like the previous movies, this one is action filled, but there is no real downtime like the other films had. This movie is just constant action and the main plot is to hunt John Wick. Something I didn’t like while watching the film was the variety of battles because they just seemed to be all over the place and it became a bit hard to keep track.

Another thing I didn’t like was how dragged out the storyline is. It’s been 4 chapters and people are still trying to kill John Wick; I think it’s time to stray away from this storyline a bit. In addition, to the redundant storyline, the plot just seems unrealistic. Considering John Wick has a huge bounty over his head, it’s crazy how he is still alive.

Although there were many little things I didn’t like, I have to admit the villain, Marquis Vincent de Gramont, was amazing. The actor, Bill Skarsgård, really did an amazing job at getting everyone to despise him. I also enjoyed the battle scene at the end because it was very chaotic, and it was interesting to see how many people were waiting to kill John on his way to battle. I also enjoyed the plot twist at the end with John’s friend and the choice he had to make. I think the movie actually gets better after the last battle because you find out who John Wick’s dad is and I think it was someone who you would have never suspected.

Overall, if you are debating whether to watch this film, I say go for it, as long as you are up to date with all the other John Wick films. I would rate this movie a 8/10 I feel like this movie was on par with the first of the four movies. I feel like this one is a great way to end off the John Wick movies.
