Best of the series (so far, at least)
Yet another masterpiece from one of cinema’s most beloved stars. We all know who that is- Keanu Reeves. But, even though he is also one of (and probably #1) nicest people, his on-screen character certainly is not. The violence in this movie is so frequent and intense it earned “Pervasive strong violence” in the R rating from the MPAA. And, believe me, it earned it. There is everything, from gunshots to stabbings to beatings to scorching. And, yes, there is close-up as well. Eye stabbings, neck snapping, (small) body dismemberment (and arm and a finger, the finger shown in close-up). Blood and brains fly, spray, and pour (mostly blood). A few F**ks are thrown in there for good measure. Drinking is plentiful as well, but the violence is brutal, graphic, intense, and frequent- sometimes all at once (Wick assembles an antique revolver and shoots a man in the head- blood and brain matter cover the door behind him).
