John Wick

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Sunday, go!, 9pm, MA15+ (2014)

Keanu Reeves (pic­tured) is in top form as a former hitman in this fright­en­ing fight-fest. Reeves plays ti­tle char­ac­ter John Wick, who de­cides it’s time to get back into the game af­ter los­ing his wife and the puppy she gave him in bru­tal cir­cum­stances. Michael Nyqvist is well­cast as Rus­sian mob boss Viggo Tarasov, whose green mob­ster son Iosef (Al­fie Allen, Game of Thrones) causes all sorts of trou­ble when he harms the things John holds dear. Ev­ery­one, even the cops, know John means busi­ness and so fol­lows some of the most vi­o­lent scenes of re­cent mem­ory. Vi­o­lent, yes. Too good to pass up, also yes.
