John Wick (film review)


Film: John Wick 
Year: 2014
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Directed By: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen 
About: An ex-hit-man comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him.

My Review:
Noticing that John Wick was on TV and that I hadn't seen it in a while I decided to give it a watch, this is a film in which I have always enjoyed and being a fan of Keanu Reeves couldn't wait to see again. 

This is a film in which I love the action within it and by showing the reasons why he is going after the gangsters. Showing that John is already going through grief when they make it worse and wants revenge by leaving him with nothing from his wife and nothing to love by killing the dog in which his wife gave him as a last present from her. Personally, I really like how much the audience is able to see how scared of John everyone is and how he is a hit-man that it not to be messed with by showing how dangerous he is and how easy he is able to kill those in which he is hunting down. Something else I like about this movie is that even though there is a contract out for John Wick for him to be killed one of his friends who has been hired even though he has opportunities to kill him tries to help him any chance that he is able to by saving his life numerous times. However, as his friend dies and John gets even angrier it is good to see how he is loyal to his friends and goes after the man who killed him in order to get revenge. Another thing in which I think is rather cool is that the hotel in which John stays at is a safe haven and when the bosses of it learn that the rules have been broken hunt down the person and kill them so that they are no longer being disrespectful. This makes me happy as it shows that even though they are against the law they still have rules in which need to be stuck to. The casting of this movie I think is really well done and fits the movie perfectly! 

Overall, I think that this movie is an amazing action film and one that always keeps me captivated all of the way through it. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a good action movie and one that is about revenge! I would definitely watch this movie again. 

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
