After a long delay, the last salvo in the John Wick franchise (at least for now) has finally assaulted theaters this weekend and the fourth entry in the blockbuster saga is worthy of being called one of, if not the, greatest action movies of all time. From Keanu Reeves returning as the lone wolf assassin John Wick to the stellar supporting cast that includes martial arts action stars Donnie Yen, Scott Adkins, Hiroyuki Sanada and Marko Zaror, Chapter 4 is action nirvana and the reason why us fans worship this genre like a religion. The action set pieces crafted by director Chad Stahelski and the 87Eleven Action Design team are equal to none and each hyper-kinetic sequence is worthy of being a finale in most action films. The John Wick franchise has reinvented the genre and the fourth installment is the most brutal, heartfelt and bone crunching yet.
On this episode of The Action Fix Podcast, I give my thoughts on why this is essential action viewing and why we need more action cinema like John Wick. It’s my 5 Star review of John Wick Chapter 4 on this episode of The Action Fix Podcast. Enjoy!
