THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

JOHN WICK (2015)










Back on the movie countdown - #22 is last year's John Wick which I figured would be a throwaway movie to pass time on a flight to L-A. Well I was wrong - John Wick is a solid B movie with great (and violent) action sequences and a strong "man of few words" performance by Keanu Reeves as the title character, a former agent or hitman of some sort who left the business some years ago. Well, his wife's death combined with the very horrible thing the son of a Russian mob boss does to him and BLAM, he's back in. All kinds of interesting ideas here including a hotel for assassins where the chief rule is that you cannot do any business at the hotel! This was a very pleasant surprise and I hear a sequel is on the works.

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS? Absolutely!
