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:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

My Review:
Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
