In India, the film received an A certificate after some cuts in strong violence, middle finger gestures and an expletive were made. A "Smoking kills" caption was also included in scenes featuring characters smoking.
The Australian theatrical version modified one shot to get an MA15+ rating instead of the less commercial R18+. The part when John Wick stabs a man in the eye was obscured in the Australian theatrical version by it zooming in the shot. The home video version has been released unaltered with an R18+ rating.
