Chapter 4 sees John Wick (Keanu Reeves) go full James Bond: globe-trotting and shooting his way through glamorous cities, from Paris to Osaka, with action that is even more spectacularly staged.
Running at nearly three hours, it is bigger than the previous films in every way – not better or worse, just more.
The High Table, the organisation that controls crime around the world, has a multi-million-dollar contract out on Wick. Like Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part III, Wick keeps getting pulled back in. Now, to try to free himself once more, he must grapple with a new villain, the Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård), an upper member of this murderous secret society.
As Wick fights his way along, he meets colourful allies and enemies. Donnie Yen plays a blind assassin. Ian McShane returns as Winston, and Lance Reddick, who sadly passed away very recently, as Winston’s right-hand man.
As with the previous films, the action and stunts on display are a cut above pretty much everything else: a tightly choreographed and beautifully framed ballet of bullets and blood. 3 hours of action may feel exhausting, but it is ever so satisfying.
Ads and Trailers start at 7.30pm with Main feature at 8pm so please add half an hour on to end time.
