It has already been noted that no Russian would have mentioned Baba-Yaga as a "bogeyman." But the screenplay also missed a golden opportunity. While the old witch barely frightens even small children, a truly terrifying figure in Russian folklore is Koschei the Deathless, a bloodthirsty, murderous and all but unstoppable ghoul. See more »
It's not what you did, son, that angers me so. It's who you did it to.
Who? That fucking nobody?
That "fuckin' nobody"... is John Wick. He once was an associate of ours. They call him "Baba Yaga."
Well John wasn't exactly the Boogeyman. He was the one you sent to kill the fucking Boogeyman.
John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar... with a pencil, with a fucking pencil. Then ...

It looks as if the filmmakers realized that the public was sick of certain movies. Most movies nowadays are full of wire work, sci-fi, etc. often topped with icing made of needless or predictable background stories that add nothing. For example the beautiful girlfriend who gives the moral speeches or the troubled teenage daughter, who aren't present here.
Nothing of that is in John Wick. John Wick adds hardly a story, no character development, no needless character or background, no misplaced drama, no misplaced humor and not too much eye candy, nothing of that. What John Wick offers is action, action and more action. In fact, it is one long action scene, with some lines and close ups added. But that is not a problem. The directors promise action and deliver. While delivering they made it look good and convincing, without trying to be more, and they're smart enough to give the movie a satisfying beginning and ending.
And for those who claim that Keanu Reeves is a horrible actor..... you are right. But his blank expression is perfect for this movie. Leave the acting to the bad guys and the delicious guest part for Willem Dafoe.
If you're tired of movies with forced drama or loaded with CGI, John Wick will be a pleasant wake-up call.
