Watched John Wick last night. Impression: I think they are trolling us.
Plot: What appears to be a normal guy looses his wife. Stricken with grief, encounters a Russian mobster at a gas station who wants his car. He says no. Mobster shows up in the middle of the night, kills his dog and steals his car.
That was the first 5-10 minutes. The remainder of the next 2 hours is crazy bloody violence with the dude whose wife and dog dead and car stolen killing everyone. There is no more plot. Dude had his dog killed and car stolen, then kills everyone for two hours.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed watching it. But the I get the feeling that the production team sat back and said “how little story can we actually inject into a movie and still have people watch it." Fucking trolls.
