My Review:
Being a fan of John Wick and realising that a third movie was on it's way I was excited to give this a watch at the first opportunity I had and with all of the action within it, it did not disappoint.

I loved that from the very beginning of this movie till the very end scene was full of action and killing which is how people know John Wick. I thought by doing this it kept really true for the fans of the franchise and with everyone against John Wick showed how great an assassin he really is. Having from the very beginning how people who helped John Wick at all also getting punished I thought made this more real and showed how the the High Table would not stand for anyone helping him after he killed one of their own. With showing how the king was taken off of his throne and being cut seven times for giving John seven bullets and at the very ending seeing him want to bring down the table, which makes him save John in order to get him on side was a great way of leading into a forth movie! Showing how John's friend Winston was determined to keep his power and so much so as to after having John Wick not kill him and to help save his hotel ended up shooting him was so expected but couldn't help feeling sorry on John for putting his trust in someone in which didn't care about him. Having a character in this movie say that they also looked up to John and make the audience laugh at times was something which I did like as even though this movie was full of action made this movie lighter at moments which did stop it from being serious all the way through which I did personally like.

However, this film did have some faults in my opinion, I found that this movie although had a lot of action and was a great bridge movie for the forth movie to come in didn't really focus enough on the plot of the film which I was rather disappointed with as I feel that they could have done more with the High Table rather than just a quick moment. Not only this but some of the deaths within John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum were really not believable and just rather funny to see which was a good change of pace at times but felt that some of the shots within those scenes could have been better. The only other thing about this movie that I will put as a negative however wasn't really a problem for myself was that you needed to know the previous movies to fully understand why John was being hunted down and could come across confusing to people in which haven't seen the previous movies.

Overall, this is a great addition to the John Wick series of movies and one that is very action packed. I would recommend this film to those who are fans of John Wick and people who are fans of action movies as this one has action non-stop throughout it. I will definitely see this movie again but as part of the series and not as a stand alone movie.

My Rating: 4/5

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 gr

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 b
