2017, R, blu-ray Keanu Reeves, Peter Storemare, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lance Reddick, Ruby Rose
Well the opening scene is certainly high octane action… oh that poor car, making me cry. John Leguizamo plays his ‘machanic’ I’d have to say that’s my favorite non-action part of the movie, though I’m not sure which part is my favorite action or stunt moment. There were so many action scenes they just seemed to have gotten meshed together for me. The movie barely gives you time to breath aside from going from one fighting scene finish… turns corner then there’s another fight. I guess it’s maybe the ones in the catacombs. Speaking of fights…damn! Keanu for 50 something…you do fight scenes better than Common~! Keanu looks like he does better in the fight scenes than Common does!(Faster at least and maybe more confortable) Let’s see here
Keanu…born 1964 =53
Common born 1972 = 44
something just doesn’t add up there for me… Common seems awkward to me in the fight scenes like he’s unsure (or afraid he’ll get his ass kicked for real …wonder if something happened while rehearsing.
Ah the BLood oath…. if you make one and betray it the person you made it to has the right to kill you for not upholding it. (It’s an honor thing) but when it comes to Wick’s profession (what the heck is Wick anyway… assassin or Mercenary? will have to check out the official definition for the 2.) that and with vampires.. you don’t make or break blood oaths with! with that… you could become a B-B-Q! and man I’ve seen some huge marshmallows that would be great to roast near that…those from the color of them flames… I think You’d need at least a hundred foot skewer to roast them!
There’s 2 rules…
- No blood on Continental grounds (what’s this? no blood at the airlines or do they mean on your own turf?)
- Every marker (blood oath) must be honored.
Well the tunes are cool even I don’t mind the club music in this!
They certainly do not let you catch your breath watching this one ….
NO freaking way Subway!! with all those people? Ok is the Canal to broadway (or was it Broadstreet) supposed to be an inside joke sort of like what my demented brain is thinking…Canal of Blood leading to the city of brotherly love?
Well this is certainly a hit and best action movie of 2017 (so far) though I think the storyline may be a bit thin now. But hey for renting it in the summer for something to not really have to think about… it was enjoyable!
