I think I purchased instead of rented ouch. John's search for his stolen vehicle takes him to a side of New York City that tourists never see, a hyper-real, super-secret criminal community, where John Wick was once the baddest guy of all. Two scenes are particularly bad and the rest are fine. After learning that his attacker is the only son of a former associate, vicious Russian crime boss Viggo Tarasov Michael Nyqvist , John turns his attention to vengeance. In that regard, the character portrayed by a steely eyed, clench jawed Clint Eastwood was an icon of whatever the opposite of existential angst might be.

Writer Derek Kolstad and co-directors Chad Stahelski and an uncredited David Leitch have made no secret that the Sergio Leone trilogy informed a lot of John Wick, but it's instructive to note that not only does the lead character in this film have a name, he also has a history, something that in turn informs this vicious, relentless account of revenge.

From here it's mostly Wick and every henchman for hire there is. The original had a big body count, but it was divided among 5 big action scenes and, for an action movie, seemed plausible. Besides John Wick and his fighting, the film does set up a very interesting world, thanks to all the other little details and characters it brings in. Again, the story is straightforward and audiences know what emotional journey to expect, but Keanu displays a good amount of range in his portrayal of Wick that is still nice to see.

The closest you get is Common's desire for revenge after Wick kills his client. He ends up at a gas station where he has a menacing interchange with Russian gangster Iosef Tarasov Alfie Allen , a kid who fancies John's car and his dog.
