Chad Stahelsky deserves applause. Having been on the set of Raven in 1994 and on the set of The Matrix, where the future director met Keanu Reeves, he presented the world an incredibly rich and spectacular franchise about one of the most venerable killers in the world over the years. Stahelskys cooperation with Reeves has been going on for two decades and, personally, I want it to continue and the world saw the fourth ÂJohn Wick.
At one time I wrote a negative review of the first part, it was too disappointing that the topic of evil Russians reappeared. However, after reviewing the film and watching the second part, I changed my mind. Now this dilogy (now the trilogy) is one of the most beloved.
The fact that the director has not changed in any of the three films speaks volumes. The same trilogy of The Dark Knight, filmed by Nolan, is sustained in the same style and the director, setting the tone in Batman. The Beginning , did not depart from its principles in both the second and third films. Same thing with Stahelsky. Raising the bar of saturation, style and brightness in the first part, he clearly follows it in the second and third films.
This applies to the external design – filming nightly New York from a height, color filling with a predominance of blue neon shades, the persistence of the main character’s style, which does not change itself and will never exchange a strict suit with a tie for a T-shirt and jeans. Whether itÂs a stuffy city, charming Casablanca or desert sands. John is John. John is always on style. And, whatÂs cool – he doesnÂt really care what he looks like while running around New York Â heÂs dirty and does not pay attention to the possible slanting looks of those around him Â they donÂt care (judging by the picture – and they also absolutely donÂt care, what’s going on around).
Composer Tyler Bates, who worked with Stahelsky in all three parts, again shook his atmospheric and spectacular (yes, thatÂs exactly the kind of word you can apply to Bates music!) Soundtracks! They are cool! They are really cool, and as it was in the second part, when you could hear the balalaika among the general audio sequence, the same thing here – the music is presented in the form of a rich and powerful accompaniment that only enhances the effect of what is happening on the screen.
What I liked more is the development of the legend about the Board, Clans, killers and the inner kitchen of the entire criminal world. The first part was the tip of the iceberg, in the second there were bills, black marks, blood oaths, in the third the legend of this world expands, new details and terms are added (such as ÂSecularized – in relation to the Continental Hotel), principles are demonstrated and laws (seven shots in seven bullets) or proof of loyalty (in the case of Wick himself and the heroine of Angelica Houston), or strict adherence to codes when medical instruments need to be postponed at exactly six, because even a second help from the Âecomunicado will akazana. In short, Chad Stahelsky and his team did a great job to create a whole new world. As far as I can understand, there wasnÂt even a comic book on which the film was made, that is, the creators of the trilogy wrote the whole Universe of Wick from scratch (if there were comics or something like that, I apologize).
Recently, more and more I pay attention to sound design and sound quality. So, in the third ÂWick a great job was done in terms of noise special effects, which is why each shot from different weapons is distinguishable from others. The details on the part of the echo in different rooms, the knock of heels on different surfaces and other nuances are well-designed.
It’s great that Lance Reddick (Charon) got more screen time and is now not only the host of Continental. ItÂs great that the line of John Wick the dog lover continues here and the dog of the protagonist from the first film is also involved here.
In addition, Keanu Reeves himself, who for several months has been training with professional fighters of special forces, should be noted, so that his actions on the screen are really high-quality and professional, and not amateurish. By the way, this looks very cool in the scene when he drives cartridges into the shotgun barrel, reducing reload time as much as possible and alternately uses an assault rifle and gun when he realizes that there is no time to change the magazine, but there is a second to snatch a new weapon.
After watching the movie on the big screen, I personally was not only satisfied with what I saw, but also impressed. Good scope, quality execution, first-class study of details, a worthy continuation of the first two parts with an even greater number of shootings, deaths (there are probably more than one per minute of timing).
However, watch you. I do not impose my opinion on anyone
