    Wow - what a ride!

    This series keeps getting better and better - the third installment raised the bar yet again, with creative fight scenes and settings, fleshing out of supporting cast, just the right amount of levity, and perfect cinematography.

    Highly recommended!

    We (some local friends and I) are doing lunch on Saturday then on to JW1 at my place (need the 4 18s for the club scene), to my buddy's HT for JW2 (he has the newest JVC 4k projector for the absolutely gorgeous black and near black scenes in the catacombs scenes) and then on to the newest commercial theater in the area for dinner and JW3.

    Damn - that sounds like a fun day! Enjoy the film(s)!

    If you like the Bourne series, you’ll probably like Wick. Think Bourne with more action and a little humor, and much better sound and visuals. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy the Bourne franchise a great deal, but Wick is better. Oddly, both of these franchises seem to have Bond up against the ropes in a major way...

    JW3 was straight up fantastic! The entire combat scene with him, Halle Berry and the two dogs is one of the best fight scenes i've seen in any movie.

    Looking forward to the recently announced JW4 is 2 yrs. The High Table is about to come down.

    Agreed. Given his dedication to learning fighting/ju-jitsu and shooting/weapons handling, I was curious if he learned the sword for this film. Apparently, he did that work for the film 47 Ronin a few years ago, and just “brushed up” on his sword skills for this film.

    I also really enjoyed his “tactical” use of his belt for defense - nice creative touch!

    Wouldn't be great to be an actor and learn skills from the best of the best? I watched a show on the shooting and firearms handling. I believe it was an NRA program and they had the guy a lady who had trained him they were both highly ranked in the shoot and scoot world. Keanu said the worked him to the bone getting it correct.
    The guy is dedicated no doubt. They had spoke of if he had wanted to be in the shooting sports he could be a top 10 contender.

    I’m going out on a limb and allowing myself to be cautiously optimistic on this one. I hope it’s more like the first one, and doesn’t collapse under the weight of too intricate of a plot.

    Man I love this film series!!

    I didn't see #3 in the theater, but I'll be getting it the day it's available on 4K UHD (9/10). The first 2 look great in 4K.

  • JW3 was fantastic. We were either on the edge of out seats, or laughing. Keanu is one of the few actors I have any respect for. He always brings it, donates large portions of his salary to the crew and many, many charities. Lives very modestly in a typical ranch.
