REVIEW-SPECTIVE DOUBLE FEATURE: John Wick (2014) + John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)


That’s right, folks, rather than give you ONE review of a recent action movie, why not give you TWO reviews of a couple of recent action movies for the price of one! Goodness, I’m spoiling you! I thought it’d be good to take a look at both John Wick movies in the John Wick-verse… I guess as with the announcement of a third movie, spoilers for the second movie in a way, this edition of REVIEW-SPECTIVE will be a celebration of some of the better action movies that have come in recent memory.

Cause John Wick reminds us how REAL action should be made as opposed to whatever Vin Diesel is starring in that’ll inevitably involve a ragtag group of loose cannons that are family and ridiculous action that people will go nuts over or an ensemble of shaky CGI explosions directed by Michael Bay that dummies will love, but people will hate, but still see any way. Cause you know, rather than NOT see a movie you will hate in the theatre, why not put money towards it and create more sequels that you will hate. JUST STOP SEEING THEM! STEAL IT OFF THE INTERNET, FOR PETE’S SAKE!
