John Wick: Chapter 4

Keanu Reeves continues this action movie franchise with style.
John+Wick%3A+Chapter+4

John Wick: Chapter 4 is an American action movie directed by Chad Stahelski. The main character is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), and the movie features Laurence Fishburne, George Georgiou, Lance Reddick and Donnie Yen. 

The John Wick movies are very popular worldwide and have a large variety of viewers. This is the fourth movie in the series, but a fifth movie has recently been confirmed. Chapter 4 has been released in theaters and is available now for purchase or rental on YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and Vudu.

This movie begins with John Wick as he prepares to get revenge against the High Table in New York City. He hides underground with the Bowery King, and he eventually goes to Morocco and murders the Elder, also known as “the person who sits above the Table.” In response,a High Table member, the Marquis Vincent de Gramont, calls Winston, the general manager of the New York Continental.

The Marquis says that John Wick may be killed with no limit on cash. After the bloody chaos of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, this movie really sets the bar with its amazing fight sequences and action scenes. The master assassin John Wick is forced to always be on the run and never live his life peacefully until he can stop the High Table. The fate of John Wick is not what the viewers were expecting, but the end credits make the audience believe there will be another movie. 

The main actor in the movie, Keanu Reeves, is well-known for his many roles in action classics. He also starred in The Matrix movies and Speed. He is very well liked, both by his audience and other celebrities. Not only is he an actor, but Reeves is also a producer and is the executive producer of this movie. 

Laurence Fishburne, who appears as the Bowery King, also starred in The Matrix movies with Reeves, and both the actors have a close relationship with each other. This is clear from their chemistry in each scene. 

Lance Reddick (as Charon) had starred in all the John Wick movies, but sadly he will not participate in any more of them, because he suddenly passed away on March 17, 2023. May he rest in peace. Lastly, Donnie Yen (as Caine) is known for his amazing roles in the Ip Man movies, and he is continuing his Wing Chun Kung Fu fighting style and keeping audiences and fans entertained. 

The story of John Wick: Chapter 4, and the overall fate of John Wick, are what keep the audience interested. All of the events that John Wick goes through, in order to get vengeance and have his freedom, are the most interesting aspects of these films, and this latest installment does not disappoint. 

Therefore, people who are not squeamish or afraid of a little blood should definitely watch the John Wick movies, especially John Wick: Chapter 4. I highly recommend all of these movies, and everyone should watch them at least once. I can’t wait to watch the fifth movie and see the fate of John Wick’s closest friend!
