In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, skilled assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin's guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world's most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
At about the 6 minute mark in the movie, John runs up the stairs of a large Library. On the top step, there is an a capella quartet singing Frank Stallone's "Take Me Back". This is an apparent homage to the Rocky franchise as this is the only movie that has featured this arrangement - other than Rocky movies I-VI. See more »
The scene in which John Wick fights off assassins near Chinatown in Lower Manhattan was shot entirely underneath an elevated subway line. There are no such lines in, or anywhere near, Lower Manhattan, and visible street signage indicates the scene was filmed in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, a destination it would've taken Wick 25 minutes to reach via horseback at maximum speed instead of seconds.

For video/television release in India, the film was cut to receive a U/A (parental guidance) rating. After the deletion of several extremely violent parts, the total duration was 114.21 minutes. See more »
Fantastically choreographed action, especially in the first 30 minutes. After that, it drops off a bit in my opinion up until the final sequence.
Certainly an enjoyable movie, but I wouldn't go near this unless I absolutly loved action movies. It's' just straight up action. That's it. If you like that, you will love this.
Personally though, after about 60 minutes I got a bit tired of the movie, As much as the actions scenes are great, they lacked unqiue elements later on in the movie. There's only so many times someone getting headshotted can be entertaining.
I gets a 7 from me, good cinematography, great choreography, average acting at best, okayish script (did not like the ''ending'')
