A Satisfying End?
Mark Kermode just reviewed John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum for BBC Five Live and here’s his review…
In John Wick, he came back to seek revenge. In John Wick: Chapter 2, he was forced to repay a debt. And now, after grossing a combined total of nearly $300 million at the worldwide box office, The Boogeyman returns for John Wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum.
In this third instalment of the adrenaline-fuelled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
Returning to the John Wick universe are Keanu Reeves (The Matrix Trilogy, Speed) as the eponymous John Wick; Laurence Fishburne(Boyz n the Hood, The Matrix Trilogy); Lance Reddick (White House Down, American Horror Story); Tobias Segal (Sneaky Pete, Mindhunter) and Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods). They will be starring alongside new cast members Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball, The X-Men franchise); Mark Dacascos (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Only the Strong); Asia Kate Dillon (Orange Is the New Black, Billions); Jason Mantzoukas (The Dictator, The Lego Batman Movie); and Angelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Addams Family).
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is directed by Chad Stahelski (the John Wick series), written by Derek Kolstad (the John Wickseries), and produced by Basil Iwanyk (Sicario, The Expendables) and Erica Lee (Sicario, A Private War).
JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM will be seeing you in cinemas across the UK on 17 May 2019 by Lionsgate UK.
