If you are looking for a movie to take your mind off of things I recommend any of the John Wick films. In fact I’m taking a look at the third film’s bluray release right now. Does it live up to the previous two outings for Mr Wick? Let’s find out, so without further ado here’s my John Wick Chapter 3 Parabellum blu-ray review.
- John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)
- Genre: Action
- Directed by Chad Stahelski
- UK Rating 15
- Discs: 1
- Released By Lionsgate
- Blu-ray Released: 16 September 2019
Following on from the events of the second film, John Wick is now a hunted man with just about every assassin ready to collect on the $15 million contract.
Style / Direction
Chad Stahelski directed whilst Dan Laustsen took care of the cinematography. It still looks visually impressive especially in those rainy night scenes with plenty of neon signs illuminated. I have to save it’s a very well made action movie, I’ve have no complaints with its style or direction.
You really aren’t going to see much better action sequences than you do in a John Wick movie.
Music / Audio Effects
The movie’s score comes from Tyler Bates and Joel J. Richard.
Acting / Characters
Keanu Reeves is back doing what he does best, looking cool whilst dispatching insane amounts of bad guys. The support cast of Ian McShane as Winston, Lance Reddick as Charon and Laurence Fishburne as the Bowery King are simply brilliant.
This time around Halle Berry appears as Sofia, a former assassin and friend of John Wick. To be honest I’ve never been a fan of her performances in most of the films I’ve seen her in. However I have to say she really does deliver a splendid performance as a kick ass assassin.
- Keanu Reeves as John Wick
- Halle Berry as Sofia
- Ian McShane as Winston
- Laurence Fishburne as the Bowery King
- Mark Dacascos as Zero
- Asia Kate Dillon as the Adjudicator
- Lance Reddick as Charon
- Tobias Segal as Earl
- Anjelica Huston as the Director
