We went to see John Wick with Keanu Reeves last night. It might be my favorite movie this year, giving Guardians of the Galaxy a run for its money. It's SUPER violent, and action-oriented, so if those aren't your things, skip it.
What I liked was in the shoot-out scenes, he didn't shoot you in the leg and hope you were down for good. He made sure the people he downed STAYED down. He's not a good guy.. but since he's our hero, you're rooting for him, because he was the victim of something even worse than his hitman past.
It wasn't often GORY, just intense.
I recommend it.
