John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum Review: 8 Ups & 2 Downs

Prepare for awesome.

Summit Entertainment

The third entry into the most unexpected - and unexpectedly awesome - of franchises is out now in cinemas, and true to form, it delivers another deliciously satisfying flurry of wince-inducingly brutality.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is not your average threequel, as indicated by the near-universal critical acclaim so far.

For genre fans craving ludicrous set-pieces combined with intriguing world-building and character work, this is easily the best action movie out of Hollywood since last summer's Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

It's not perfect - as no movie is - but it's tough to imagine many fans of the two previous films feeling underwhelmed or short-changed by the outrageous wealth of delirious insanity offered up.

If you're one of those viewers who thinks most modern action movies feature too much downtime between set-pieces, this is most certainly the film for you.

With summer blockbuster season only just kicking off, Parabellum has set a high standard for all others to follow.

But first, here's what the movie didn't quite get right...


Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes). General video game, TV and film nut. Occasional sports fan. Full time loon.
