JOHN WICK was pretty disappointing.  It was still watchable, but a few things irked me so much that I couldn’t get past them and enjoy the movie. #1 For an action movie, that was a horrible intro. #2 He COULDN’T FIGHT.  To be John Wick he sucked.  They pumped him up so much and he lost EVERY fist fight he was in.  He was amazing with a bullet, but Horrible with his hands.   #3 I was utterly disappointed with the conflict he’d been searching for.  When he finally finds the guy that killed his dog… it was a waste of time.  #4 One of the worst endings ever.  HOWEVER, the action in-between these 5 issues was enough to keep the movie entertaining.  Just not satisfying.  Try Again!

SYNOPSIS:
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, John Wick is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre”.
