An average movie

To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of this franchise but since this 3rd instalment was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, at least, I have to admit that each new instalment has been more badass than the previous one and this one delivered some non-stop massive action scenes without taking much of a breath. In fact, at this point, the plot had pretty much disappeared and what was left was John Wick constantly fighting against some nameless assassins who wanted to get the bounty hanging above his head. The movie also developed further the rather murky mythology around this character but, to be honest, I always thought it was rather pretentious and only mildly entertaining. Concerning Halle Berry, I had some rather mixed feelings. I mean, I always had a weak spot for her but, to be honest, even if she did win an Academy Award ages ago, she is not really a great actress after all. Anyway, even if she was not bad during the action scenes, I didnโ€™t think she was really convincing during the rest of the movie. On top of that, Iโ€™m not sure if it was such a great idea to give John Wick a partner as the guy had been a lone wolf so far. Anyway, eventually, even though Berry was given top billing, she eventually had maybe 30 mins of running time after all. On the other hand, I have to admit that I was actually positively surprised by Mark Dacascos. Indeed, I knew that the guy had some major martial-arts skills but I didnโ€™t expect him to be so funny as he kept stealing the show each time he said something. It was also pretty neat that Wick went to some exotic location like Casablanca but, to be honest, this trip turned out to be rather pointless if you consider the finale outcome. Anyway, to conclude, even if I still think that this franchise is rather overrated, I have to admit that it was a decent watch and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.ย
