If you want peace, prepare for war.
When the first John Wick movie dropped back in 2014, it became an instant classic, and that’s not an easy feat to accomplish. Keanu Reeves though has done it three times already. In 1994 with Speed, again in 1999 with The Matrix, and finally with Mr. Wick. These are films that audiences connected with immediately. And in the age before internet memes, quotability was the standard, and few movies not staring Jim Carrey or Mike Meyers were quoted or spoofed as often – Pop Quiz Hot Shot!

Well John wasn’t exactly the Boogeyman, he was the one you send to kill the fucking Boogeyman.
Last year Keanu Reeves released his best movie in a very long time. It was the story of a retired hitman named John Wick. The movie opened up with the tragic passing of his wife, and his bonding with a puppy. But before you know it, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) murders said puppy and John goes on an epic killing spree to avenge an innocent dog and the memory of his wife. It was easily among the most entertaining movies of the year, and now Mr. Wick is back.

One of the surprise hits of 2014 was without a doubt John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves. The action film saw a return to from for Reeves, who hasn’t wowed audiences with a heavy action film since The Matrix, which believe it or not was 16 years ago.

John Wick was a fun, if not shallow, revenge movie that seems to have created a cult following after its release in theaters last year. The action flick starring Keanu Reeves made a decent bit of money and was infinitely better than his previous effort, 47 Ronin. Despite the fact that Keanu usually doesn’t do sequels unless they contain the word “Bill” and/or “Ted” in the title, (we are ignoring the existence of the Matrix sequels) it looks like there maybe hope we’re going to get more of the ex-hitman shooting up the screen one more time. That’s right: John Wick 2 is in development.

John Wick is the revenge movie we all hoped it would be. Straight forward without distraction of unneeded twist, nor neutered to avoid the ®. The action choreography flows with the soundtrack. The cars are classic, the women are fast, the fights are brutal, and feel is…familiar- in a comforting way. Twinges of 1970s grit and old school code combine with a rapidly paced 101-minute orchestra of ‘cool.’ 1994, 1999, and now 2014. Welcome back Keanu.
