“John Wick: Chapter 4” is a highly anticipated action film directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Keanu Reeves as John Wick. The film follows John Wick as he tries to defeat The High Table and face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe. Here’s a closer look at what makes “John Wick: Chapter 4” worth watching.

Warning: watching ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ may cause extreme disbelief in physics and a sudden urge to learn martial arts.

Non-Stop Action with Enough Story and Character Development

Like its three predecessors, “John Wick: Chapter 4” is a non-stop action film with just enough story and character development to establish the stakes. The film features endless style and thrilling stunts that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. With elevated action and a relentless performance from Keanu Reeves, “John Wick: Chapter 4” may stand the test of time as the best John Wick film yet.

A Cautionary Tale of Excess

While “John Wick: Chapter 4” might be the new crowning achievement of stunt-work and action imagery, it’s also a cautionary tale as to the pitfalls of excess. The film’s bloated run time can feel exhausting, and the narrative lulls can make it seem like this story is finally running out of steam. Nonetheless, the finale is a preposterous blast that will have viewers cheering for Wick and his friends.

Great Supporting Characters and Developments

“John Wick: Chapter 4” also allows its supporting characters a little more personality and development than the films have up to this point. The film’s enemy brothers plot calls to mind John Woo’s classics and elevates this fourth chapter above its predecessors. Despite the egregious running time and padded plot, the (maybe) conclusion to Keanu Reeves’ action series still serves up some of the original’s delightful weird.

Jaw-Dropping Stunts and Action Imagery

“John Wick: Chapter 4” might have viewers questioning everything. Do bullets hurt? Are cars soft? Is half the world’s population sleeper assassins? Can Keanu Reeves act? Despite how wild everything in this universe may be, it remains a ridiculously good hang. With standout jaw-dropping stunts and action imagery, it’s safe to say that “John Wick: Chapter 4” leaves everything on the floor for this one.

A Must-Watch for Action Fans

“John Wick: Chapter 4” is a rousing, mesmerizing, and outrageously funny thriller loaded with action and pizazz. Even at a lengthy 169 minutes, the film never feels slow and never lets up, making it the biggest and most ambitious work Chad Stahelski has ever done. With its well-developed supporting characters, cautionary tale of excess, and jaw-dropping stunts and action imagery, “John Wick: Chapter 4” is a must-watch for action movie fans.
