    #2 & #3 have very indulgent stories with boring montages and stuff that are meant to have narrative significance but are over done or lack actual significance.

        The most pointless movie.

          The scene where the dog gets shot... are you fucking kidding me? Absolutely dumb.

              If they could somehow make John Wick the 5th version of the matrix that would be absolutely incredible.

              I know it won’t happen but just think about it, when the Architect says about the first version of the matrix was designed to make everyone happy then the second version (where the Merovingian and Persephone and the vampires are from) was made to be evil it’s logical for a machine mind to do that, then I think the third version of the matrix was a total failure as they couldn’t balance it, and each version from that is all about the balance but in Matrix lore and as they say in the films “the problem is choice”.

              In the Matrix trilogy it’s the 6th version, what I’m getting at is if the machines designed certain humans to be more powerful (John Wick)

              It’s very far fetched but you get where I’m going with this?

                  This one was not great in the least bit hallie Barry was not needed and they prolonged tf out of the fight scenes. I almost fell asleep

                    Did you get paid well for this review Chris? I hope it was worth it... Nobody with half a brain or more can call this third installment great. The first was amazing, nice story line and plot and super crisp action scenes to blow the mind..viewer could relate and invest in the characters and story. Second did a decent job at that as well, really enjoyed it.. but this third one was just 2 hours of mindless, often to slow and choppy, action scenes...senseless, meaningless actions scenes..that go on and on and on and on and on (you get my point) with extremely little character build up or story build up...just...action, action action.. to the boring and irritating level. The ONLY reason why i sat through this movie is because I just luv me some Keanu action! Shame on you for supporting such garbage without any decent criticism Chris. And you call yourself a critic huh ;) i say soulless sell out ;)

                        I love how Keanu Reeves could actually kill you and a whole library of other people without the use of any guns or weapons.

                          The choice he makes was necessary at that point. Later on he gets another choice that is basically all or nothing. That's why he turned his back on the first one. His actions seem reckless but are ballsy as fuck. He's just like a leaf in the wind. He flows like water in a river, he goes wherever life takes him, that's what I love about this movie, reminds me of me, of us, it's human :)

                            disappointed loved the first two tilms , the first 15, 20 minutes i thought were great and the dog scene, but just went down hill the action becomes very repetitive something i didnt feel in the first two, the fights start feel like ripoffs from the raid, keanu is great but some of the other acting in the movie is shockingly bad

                              I like it but it was way over the top with some certain scenes that it loss some realism.

                                  You hit the nail on the head on the movie pro and con. The action choreograph "editing" is half to one second off. The editor should have cut the staging the hit or wallowing after a hit. The movie needed more story and character building. The action got to be too much God mode body count. Berry is good, but her timing is slightly off. Should have shown bullet holes in their (leads and bad guys)body armor, more gasping, and "slightly" less gun fu and more tactical realism before the next kill. Give the audience a chance to breath and rest our eyes. Still some of the best fight scenes.

                                    Not only was the action and choreography Top Notch in Wick3 (idk which boring parts ur talking about) but the Cinematography was gorgeous as it usually is in the J. wick flicks...I mean the Glass sequence Was Fckn tuffffff! And that’s not even the best, just one of many....I almost feel torn about them trying to top it in J.W.4, it’s gonna b hard to pull that off if they decide to do so

                                      You suck at movies if you didn’t find some of the fight scene boring and repetitive especially when they introduced Hallie Barry. She was more John wick than he was himself it almost turned into her movie

                                    The movie was great until he went to Casablanca. Action scenes became lazy, and the darkest, scary underworld turned into Legend of Zelda for adult.

                                      This movie was the wrong time to start raving about consistency. This movie dropped the ball, sold out, and was a rushed piece of meh. Everyone that saw #2 was pumped for the third installment. On the run, no help, one wounded man, yada yada... the fights and encounters in the first two all took a toll. John's the best of the best, but he's not Neo. His opponents are still the rest of the best, demonstrated by how he had some trouble with the violinist, the sumo, etc. There wasn't much in the way of fodder. But instead of ramping up the suspense, John feels invincible for some reason throughout this film. Particularly given the point a few opponents DO have him dead to rights a few times, but give him a second shot because they want to 'fight him at his best' or 1v1 or some other crap. Oh, not to mention the High-Table's own elite forces, aka fodder in now *very* bulletproof suits. How about instead of seeing zero skill damage-soakers, some actual opponents instead of having them cut down by the silly insert villain? Oh his name's Zero? What's his last name, Tension?

                                      The whole Halle Berry arc was unnecessary, does nothing to the plot, and is weird fluff. *So* many of the things that were a cool effect, (like how I instantly assumed a horse-kick would come into play with the random stable encounter in the city) but each time there was a gimmick, they had to just do it to death, over and over. Dog attack x 7, doing the hitting-the-weapon-into-you finisher like 3 times, the horse.. Except the one scene that did have some cool potential with the revolver, and it was instantly ditched I'm sure to the disappointment of pretty much everyone?

                                      The music was also non-existent oddly compared to the previous installments, 2/10 there. And that MEH ending. What, trying to rip on that Infinity War style? If we're honestly supposed to believe Winston/Charon would wish harm on John, awful. If we're meant to accept they're both that happy with how "framing" John's death *(HE DED!)* by throwing the man off a goddamn building, also awful.
                                      This movie wasn't ready and should have gone back in the oven.

                                        Amen brother, amen! I am shocked about the extreme number of people seemingly incapable of giving ANY critical thought what so ever and only praise the outcome of this third installment. I honestly find it scary. Love the first one..really love it! The second one kept the juices flowing and gasping for more...but this third everything you said ++

                                      I was looking forward to John Wick 3, but I really did not like this one, just action for action sake and no story. Very disappointed and no longer interested in this franchise. Anyone else feel the same?

                                        Yep, same here. I was really disappointed and for now lost interest. I as well am disappointed by the review Chris gave.. lost a bit of faith in him too.

                                      All I know is John wick 2 was total dog shit.... worst writing possible. Ok 100 people with guns ALWAYS run straight up to him, like everyone is out of bullets, also everyone hears 1000 gun shots and yet lets run right in the middle of the duck shoot, over and over and over and over....and over. Just plain pathetic.

                                        Am I the only person who finds John Wick movies incredibly boring? I tried to watch this but there’s no light and shade, it’s just one fight scene after another (at least the amount I was able to sit through). I dunno, maybe it’s just not my bag but I would have preferred a story line.

                                                It was good but got bored tbh... Felt too untouchable as a protagonist. His injuries didn't do anything to slow him or inconvenience him so what was the point in having them at all? Series needs wrapping up unless it loses its way.

                                                  I just watched this... and man was it boring. The first movie was great. the second movie was good. This movie just felt ridiculous and bloated. The first fight scene with knives was great, but after that the movie just felt nonsensical. The choreography was great, but so many people were dying so quickly that I really stopped caring about any of the action.

                                                        I actually found this film very disappointing. I loved 1 and 2, and right at the start of 3 when he was running through the streets with very little time remaining, I was super excited. My initial expectation of the film was that the whole thing would just be John fighting off assassins in New York, and for the half an hour or so that he was doing so I was loving it. But as soon as he left New York, the film really slowed down. It felt like this was the actual beginning, despite already being quite far in. The one action sequence in this middle part just felt so forced, as if the writers realised the film had gone long enough without any cool fights, the whole reason for it was a bit of a stretch really, and it ended up having pretty much no consequences. Then after maybe another twenty minutes, he's back in New York, and the pace starts ramping up again. I really loved the third act of this movie, I thought it was great action-wise and story-wise, especially the end of it. I just think that the second act was just really insignificant and useless, as if they wanted to inject some more story that wasn't really needed, and if they had just kept the first act going then somehow transitioned into the third act, keeping it all in New York, I think this film could have been much better.

                                                              this film has nothing but action scenes. many are cool but too many are crap. especially with the dogs

A movie so cartoonish you'd think it was written by fifth graders. Pointless, plotless, endless. One, big, two-hour fight scene. Blow me if you can't handle one criticism.

The fact that there was so little screaming from the casual bystanders strained your credulity did it? Good job they didn't introduce dragons to the mix; where would you be then? And here I thought all along that this was a fantasy....
