John Wick was directed by Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad. It was hailed as one of the best action films of all time by various magazines and led the way to sequels. The movie continued with John getting his stolen car back and being contacted by an old associate, not letting him completely let go of the world he was a part of as the Baba Yaga.

After taking up an assignment that John couldn’t deny, he ends up in a serious entanglement of problems. The more Wick tries to come out of the people and life he left behind, the more he keeps getting involved. Three sequels were made on John Wick and each one of them was loved by the audience.

The world of John Wick

The way Chad and others created a world for John Wick made the people extremely interested and glued to it. One can’t just start by watching the second or third part of John Wick randomly to understand what’s happening. You must watch the first part, get used to the rules and behavior of the world the movie is set and then only could go along the course of other parts.

The High Table is what controls everything. It is a group of 12 members. No one or nothing can go out of the high tablets control. If you violate the high table’s rule, well, you are dead!

The Continental is a chain of hotels that comes under the high table. It is the dwelling place of all people who are up to no good. You can find all kinds of people from hitmen to smugglers, to drug lords in the Continental. If you are in the Continental, you must have to adhere to the rules of the Continental. And the most important one of those rules is that no one can hurt or kill anyone while in the Continent premises. If someone does so, he/she will be announced as ‘Excommunicate’ and must face death.

If you want someone to be gone, in the world of John Wick, you can open an account in his/her name and quote a price. You can assign that account to a specific group of people or can make it public. Anyone who kills the person will get the price.

Markers are another inevitable part of the John Wick world. If someone approaches you for help, and you agree to do it, you can hold a marker with that person’s blood in it. In the future, if ever you required help from that person, you can use the marker. If he/she dishonors the marker by not accepting help, that person will be executed.

We are not going too much into the plot as it might be spoiling the movie for you. But it must be admitted now that this chapter is not just the best in the John Wick franchise but the best action movie ever to be made!

Chapter 4 excelled literally in everything! This time, an ensemble cast was presented along with Keanu Reeves such as Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, Skot Adkins, etc. It was a feast to watch all of them onscreen together. You can see all kinds of guns used in this chapter and Keanu had his moment with a nunchak! While the plot gets gripping on the go, so did the number of action sequences.

What made John Wick’s Chapter 4 so special is how the makers tried to showcase something different with each stunt sequence. If you choose hand-to-hand combat, the makers will have a thousand different ways to show it onscreen. This exactly is what makes the John Wick franchise a standout. With more realistic and single-shot sequences, chapter 4 will blow your mind.

In the second half of the movie, there is a single-shot aerial sequence that will blow your mind. Such a perfect sequence would never happen without every department of the crew and the cast coordinating with each other well. Dan Lausten deserves an award for those numerous stunning frames and single-shot sequences.
