John Wick: Chapter 4

John Wick: Chapter 4 ★★★★★

One of the biggest, best, and certainly most action films that Hollywood has ever produced as far as I can think of, John Wick: Chapter 4 is quite simply just a truly spectacular extravaganza of the very best action movie scenes put to screen. It's not hyperbole, I think, to say that the endless set pieces that are crafted here are sublime in every possible way, stunning in their presentation with the peerless choreography, jaw-dropping cinematography (this seriously might be one of the best-shot movies in a long time), and performed to such a brilliant level. As always, Keanu Reeves is stellar in the lead role and the rest of the cast, from the returning faces to the great additions of Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, and Scott Adkins are amazing as well. The film is very long for sure, but you really never feel its length since it's mostly filled with action and is so very well-crafted and breathless in its execution. I really don't think there's any action film in the last few years that can match up to John Wick: Chapter 4 (you'd have to go back to Mad Max: Fury Road for something that even comes close) in terms of purely action, and there are just so many mesmerizing and satisfying scenes in it that it's easily one of the greatest action films ever made.
