Watch This Before You See John Wick 3
- Published on Apr 19, 2019
- John Wick could have been just another action movie, but what audiences got was something else entirely. John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum hits theaters May 17, and promises to take viewers even deeper into the world of assassins and their various vendettas. Here's what you should watch before you head to the theater.
There's a lot of great dialogue in the first John Wick film, but we all know which one is the true money line:
"People keep asking if I'm back and I haven't really had an answer… but now, yeah, I'm thinking I'm back!"
It's as much a statement about the character of John Wick as it is a battle cry for Keanu Reeves the actor. Reeves had a string of hits in the '90s, including a little movie you might've heard of called The Matrix, but then came the sequels. After their mixed reception, it seemed like Keanu's star was finally descending.
He continued to work on smaller films and passion projects, but he didn't truly rise to prominence again until 2014, when he donned a suit and dug up a lockbox full of guns and gold coins in John Wick. Reeves was back in the spotlight with plenty of momentum, and will even be returning to his first iconic role in the long awaited Bill and Ted Face the Music alongside Alex Winter. Yeah, we're thinking he's back.
The first entry in the John Wick franchise is incredibly straightforward. For those who haven't seen it - spoiler alert - a man named John Wick who has recently lost his wife learns that she had adopted a puppy for him. He takes the puppy in and loves it with all of his heart for a single day. But after a chance run-in with the dirtbag son of a mob boss, things go wrong. That dirtbag son decides he wants John's car, so he goes and takes it, and in the process, he kills John's dog. This is a big mistake.
