John Wick: Final Preview

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, October 23, 2014

Keanu Reeves is back at the top of his game as the "take-no-prisoner" ass-kicker.

Brace yourself for an epic throwback at your favorite action-packed B-movies complete with a lone badass back on blood-thirsty vendetta this weekend with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch's John Wick. 



When we here at The Daily Zombies first heard of John Wick, the feature film debut of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the dynamic duo of 87eleven, one of the most well-established action design/development team that Hollywood studios turn to for those film-defining action sequences or the precise place they need to send their very own actors over for action training, we were intrigued enough to quickly go through the official synopsis. For your easy reference, this was precisely what we read:

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 (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre”.


And after further assessment of the action thriller set to hit theaters tomorrow, we are pretty hopeful for the bold new take on the "assassin genre" and more importantly, the good old revenge film trope. This is of course after we checked out the trailer and fully comprehend that by "everything", what the gangster took was the life of the protagonist's puppy. Yes, no doubt still a life and all, but you have to ask yourself: In your lifetime watching revenge movies, have you ever witnessed a motivation as such? Never ever, and we appreciate that this is by design. All things granted, the puppy is the last memento from John Wick's late wife. But we can clearly see the waters Stahelski and Leitch is meddling with in what appears to be an honest-to-goodness B-movie tribute.

Still doubtful, check out the extremely well-choreographed action sequences, particular the gunplay scenes, in the following two trailers.
