John Wick’s murder week continues in John Wick 3, which is now in theaters and worthy of your entertainment dollars. It may be more of the same, but what’s so damn wrong about that?

“Hey now fans of the Baba Yaga, Matt Heywood here to review John Wick 3, or what I like to call another round of the death ballet starring my favorite super hero assassin!
John Wick 3 definitely doesn’t disappoint, and it confirms that this surprise trilogy featuring brutal violence isn’t just a flash in a pan. It’s a legit franchise that keeps getting better with age, and it doesn’t really even require any sort of plot outside of brilliantly scripted violence to keep you thoroughly entertained.
My screening was akin to being at a WWE match thanks to how raucous the crowd would get during John’s more epic and gnarly kills. You could feel everyone feeding off of the energy coming from the action, and it only bolstered the already radical experience of watching Wick become the hunted.
It’s impossible to not let out cheers, or disturbing laughs of pleasure as a dude gets his jaw snapped, or a knife shoved through is eye in an up close and personal manner. That’s the beauty of John Wick 3, it’s more of a super hero movie on Rated-R steroids than an action flick, which is why we all react to John’s horrific kills with demented levels of glee.
For all intents and purposes, the plot is identical to the other films, except John is the hunted this time, which just means people come to him to die instead of the other way around. The narrative mostly revolves around Wick’s murder hands, but it also reveals a few more layers to the secret society of crime that exists in the film’s universe. These revelations definitely warrant another sequel, which is all but guaranteed after the way this entry ends, and the world should be pleased.
The middle act does get slow because the action takes a break, but overall John Wick 3 manages to keep you grinning like a blood lusting psycho throughout.
John Wick may just be a franchise about violence, but it keeps on churning out the hits, and JW3 is just as solid, if not more so than the previous entries. Its action is undeniably gruesome, yet beautiful, and the strange world of cordial crime it’s set in just keeps getting more interesting.
John Wick 3 gets a 9 out of 10 review score from Team EB, and we highly recommend seeing it in theaters with other fans!
