After a stellar first outing, John Wick 2 was a miss for me. If the trailer for John Wick 3 is anything to go by, it could find the franchise back in form.
In the trailer, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is more popular than ever after an $14 million bounty is put on his head. Not one to shy away from the attention, Wick welcomes his new friends with open arms, swords, knives, and guns—the kind of arsenal you’d expect from a retired assassin.
What made the first John Wick so good was how effortlessly stylish and inventive it was. John Wick 3 looks to be on the same level, with some new ideas on display. The scene with Wick being chased on a motorcycle by a bunch of Katana-wielding assassins looks particularly intriguing.
Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
Still on the run following his assassination of a member of the High Table in The Continental, and with a $14 million global contract on him, John Wick is excommunicated from every Continental service, which forces him to fight his way out of New York City with the help of a hitwoman (Halle Berry) who still believes in his trust.
I really hope John Wick 3 turns out to be good, because the trailer looks awesome. John Wick 3 hits theaters on May 17.
