  • John fights four men in an corridor filled with different types of bladed weapons.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Constant intense action-violence.
  • This movie is violent but not too bloody. Teens will be able to handle it.

  • This movie does not take itself very seriously, but it is still pretty violent.
  • Not as violent and graphic as the second one.
  • A man is slowly stabbed in the eye, pretty brutal.
  • Prolonged intense fighting and shooting sequences are expected. John Wick's life is in constant danger, so tense scenarios are expected.

Violence & Gore

  • Multiple gunshot wounds, head shots.
  • John Wick fights a man at a library. They throw each other around and punch one another in the face multiple times. Eventually, John gets the upper hand and corners the man towards a wall. He puts a book in the man's mouth and repeatedly punches the book, he then twists the books which breaks the man's jaw. He finishes his opponent by putting the man's head on the side of a book and then punching him which breaks the man's neck. Brutal but not too bloody
  • A huge shootout where two assassins fight through many henchmen. Blood sprays after each gunshot to the head and body.
  • A man cuts off his finger and the wound is later burned.
  • A man get's slashed seven times with a sword. We see blood spray and he collapses. It is later revealed that he survived the attack.
  • A big shootout takes place at a hotel. Lots of guards gets shot with blood spraying. As they are wearing armor, they are all shot in their throats and in their eyes, which are their weak spots. The protagonist later switches to an shotgun with armor piercing rounds. When he uses this weapon, we see some guards getting their heads blown off. Extremely gory
  • Two men fight each other with swords. Al tough they are first equals, one of the men gets the upper hand and slashes the other man several times. He then stabs him through the chest. The stabbed man later collapses and dies from the stab wound.
  • A man is shot in the chest and back four times. Although he is wearing a bulletproof vest, he falls off the building and is presumed dead. We see him falling and hitting various objects on the way down. He is revealed to have survived his fall minutes later.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Only in the first ten minutes when John Wick visits a doctor, a stitch procedure is performed, and medicine is used, but that is all.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are multiple fight scenes, most of which last a long time. The film is more or less a fight, with a few breaks between
  • The scene where Winston shoots John Wick out of the roof may be upsetting for some.
  • Very early on a man has his jaw brutally broken with a book and has his neck snapped shortly after.
  • This movie is the most violent of the franchise.
