With Keanu Reeves showing his dark side in this dark thriller. It’s not only the trailer that’s dark!
It seems a simple take of someone who has their dog killed and car stolen. It does seem that there is more to it than that. It’s just that the thief decides to choose the one man in America that you don’t want to get on his bad side.
It seems that the Italian Mafia is out of fashion as the mobsters of choice theses days. It’s the Russians that have taken over form our Sicilian friends. This film isn’t any different!
When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a brutal Russian mobster, he hunts down his adversaries with the ruthlessness that made him a crime underworld legend in John Wick; a stylish tale of revenge and redemption.
After the sudden death of his beloved wife, John Wick receives one last gift from her, a beagle puppy named Daisy, and a note imploring him not to forget how to love. But John’s mourning is interrupted when his 1969 Boss Mustang catches the eye of sadistic thug Iosef Tarasov who breaks into his house and steals it, beating John unconscious and leaving Daisy dead. Unwittingly, they have just reawakened one of the most brutal assassins the underworld has ever seen.
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.
