*****


Directed by Chad Stahelski

John Wick [Keanu Reeves] a lethal mafia bludgeon is in a forlorn as he has lost his wife Helen [Moynahan] due to an incurable illness. Her dying gift a little dog to him is the only survival source to cope with desolate life.

One night when he encounter to one Iosef [Alfie Allen] and his gang adds to more grievous trouble as he forcibly insists on buying his'69 Mustang’ but ultimately he steals the car and manically kills his dog, when he drives the car to one infamous garage of Aurelio's [Leguizamo] to get it unofficially transferred and customized Aurelio realizes whose car it is, he refuses to get involved. The royal mess created by losef leads to mayhem as his father Viggo [Michael Nyqvist] is none other but a head of Russian Mafia. Thus Viggo now wants to protect his son and seeks pardon from wick’s reprisal but in vain. Wick in spite of the enormous threat of the Russian Mafia goes on brutal hunting of Iosef killing his henchmen one by one.

John Wick is a dark and guttural cinematic experience with lots of bloodshed and less scope to narrative of an insignificant vengeance drama.
