Review - John Wick

Okay - fair warning for anyone who hasn't seen this - a puppy dies. That's not a spoiler, it happens fairly early on, but. A PUPPY DIES.

Okay, so - John Wick (Keanu Reeves, aka Dorian Grey because he DOES NOT AGE) is a former hitman. He's grieving as his wife has recently died, and he does not have his shit together.

His wife - knowing he would need something to focus on - posthumously sent him a puppy so John Wick would have something to love.

John runs into some idiots at a service station who offer to buy his car - it's some kind of fancy-schmancy ... Dodge? John says no, and heads home with his puppy.

Then the idiots break into his home, kill his puppy, and steal his car.

And John Wick - former hitman extraordinare - is NOT PLEASED.

The guy who stole his car and killed his puppy is the son of a Russian mobster and even he's scared of John Wick and basically goes OH SHIT YOU MORON when he finds out what his idiot son has done.

And then John Wick kills everyone. I'm not even kidding. The thing is though - it's actually a good movie? Like, the premise is really, really simple - man loses wife, then dog gets killed and car gets stolen so man kills everyone - but ... it works?

I don't even know HOW, but it does.
