Back in 2014, a little movie named John Wick was made and for me, I did not have the loftiest expectations whatsoever. It honestly seemed like a direct-to-DVD type of movie when I first heard of it. Well that little movie was awesome and made $86 million and here we are with the sequel.
John Wick was one of the best action movies I have seen in the past 5 years. I describe it as “the perfect action movie.” Real original, DG. It had, you guessed it, a lot of action, but also had a ridiculous and compelling storyline. Ex-assassin seeks revenge against the punk (Theon Greyjoy) who killed his puppy. Obviously there was more to it, but that’s honestly the basis of it. I loved every second of it. Just a bunch of badass fighting scenes with killer explosions. A lot of head shots (ding) as well so I was a fan. Go watch it right now on HBO (I don’t have an HBO GO password for you. Apologies.)
This begs the question: is Keanu Reeves a good actor? I’m just going to rattle off some dece movies from Keanu.
- Bill And Ted Series
- Point Break
- The Matrix
- The Replacements
- John Wick
Granted, I didn’t really like any of his movies in the mid 2000s, but that’s a pretty solid list right there. I could sit down and watch all of those movies right now and have no regrets. So by the scale of Dece or Not Dece, Keanu Reeves is…Dece.
So I have high hopes for John Wick 2. I think it’s going to kick ass once again. Total wild card throwing Morpheus at the end. I don’t want this line in John Wick 2. I NEED this line in John Wick 2.
Oh, there’s plans for a John Wick 3. What did we do to deserve this good fortune?
