    Even better than the sequel but doesn't top the original.

    What will happen to John now after this flick? This was great but left a lot of holes. Will Halle Berry come to join him? Fishburne is ticked off so we have 'the king of the Bowery' as an ally. {Bowery: old Dutch word from New Amsterdam days meaning the farms. - ironic will you 'buy the farm' in the Bowery?} Cannot wait for John Wick 4.!!

    John Wick 3 delivers in every way, shape or form. The action is non stop and at the top of its game again, its just so good you want more and more. This 3rd film actually expands the John Wick world in many ways, the world building is great with the story is doing its job perefectly. Keanu Reeves and all the cast definitely put in a top notch performance and clearly enjoyed making this film.

    This part of the John wick triology was the most realistic to me and it gave the series the depth it needs with the background of the main protaginist and the plot twists, can't wait for the next journey I can tell it will be much darker.

    I really thought the movie wasn't as strong as it's prequel. But it was still a awesome and brutal movie. This is something anyone should experience and I say the same for the entire John Wick franchise.

    It's decent (but familiar) territory.

    It was pretty much what you would expect of this franchise. It's pretty much a non-stop orgy of violence. There are so many implausible aspects of this story, not the least of which is the beating that Keanu Reeves' character takes and keeps on going in apparent top form. While I am critical, I'll keep watching the offerings.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a well-made movie that falls in between the first and second installments when looking at the quality. This third film in the franchise considerably develops in the world of John Wick, yet there are still some issues. The story is much better than the second but not as satisfying as the first. The film's form is a lot easier to follow and treats its characters better here. However, the screenwriters were balancing on a tightrope, as the film felt spontaneous at times. It is ok for a movie to be unconstrained. Yet, when a plot like this has an interconnected story, it needs to feel like a ceaseless flow. This minor problem leads to the runtime running more lengthy than it should. Narrowing the film down to be under 2 hours would have helped it feel complete. The cast redeems this dilemma as they know how to make an entertaining movie. Keanu Reeves is great as the lead, yet he still needed to display more emotion to capture his true feelings about being an assassin. Halle Berry is a lot of fun in this film, and her line delivery is dead-on. Yes, it is slightly apparent that she isn't doing all the action scenes, but it does not take away from the film. Asia Kate Dillon is solid, yet their line delivery is not the best, with Dillion appearing somewhat miscast. Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are sensational, with their performances being the best here out of all three installments. The action sequences here are also the best out of all three movies. It is better choreographed than the first film but doesn't run excessively longspun like the second installment. The production and set design are also quite pleasurable. Some of it does feel lightly repeated from the preceding installments. However, it still has its uniqueness to it. The cinematography is also exquisite in this film. The lighting choices are impeccable, and nothing ever feels too dull or too bright. Chad Stahelski also does an adequate job here, but it felt like his weakest direction out of the three movies. Plus, the comedic aspects of the movie did not work. The comedy felt forced and not as effective in this type of movie. While this review may sound like complaint palooza, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is an entertaining film with many appealing aspects. For instance, there is the ballerina sequence. Those scenes have some of the most intricate visuals in the franchise. There are a plethora of features to this movie that are great. Most of them just needed some more tweaking so the film could feel like it was at its full potential. Details like the cinematography and the action choreography are components that elevate the film. Then there is the story and directing, which is appreciable, yet it needed some more. While John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum isn't an average movie, it still needed that extra oomph during small parts of the film. Read more reviews like this at postcreditreviews.com

    I love the John Wick character and I thought the first two were cinematic breakthroughs. They were truly cutting edge in their combination of good storytelling, good acting, and great action and fight choreography. This film is a noble addition to the series but not quite at the level and grittiness of the first two. Keanu Reeves is till commanding. Ian McShane is great in his role. Laurence Fishburne and Mark Dacascos and Halle Berry were all very good, as expected. The action, cinematography, and fight choreography are all top notch. I was not crazy about the performance if Asia Kate Dillon as The Adjudicator, which is a pivotal role in the film. The story revolves around the consequences of decision to allow John Wick to live at the end of the 2nd installment of the films for killing a member of the high table. I did love the introduction of the dogs and the role they played in this one. When I was watching this film I almost felt like I did when I was watching the 3rd installment of the Mad Max films. Make no mistake-this is must see; however, it is not John Wick or its sequel. It is still leaps and bounds above anything in its genre. I look forward to the next installment of the series.

    As good as both of the other two, must watch as it adds to the overall lore of the John Wick world.
