I like Keanu Reeves and I really like the the look of John Wick. It looks like that special kind of over the top kill fest that we need once in a while. What I still like best about the story, so far, is that it really seems as though the straw that broke the camel’s back was the murder of the puppy given to Wick by his dying wife. No matter what he does from that point on, you have to root for a man avenging the murder of his dead wife’s puppy.

John wick opens on October 24 and also stars: Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, Jason Isaacs, Alfie Allen, Lance Reddick, John Leguizamo, Dean Winters, and Michael Nyqvist.
