The story is set in a dark underbelly that connects the entire world, with no law or government involvement and has cleverly built its power to make the audience believe that this world can exist too. The franchise has created the most campy-themed movies around the central character of John Wick, who kills over 100 men in every film but wants to be remembered as a ‘Loving Husband.’

In Chapter 4, the story takes its time to set up the world of the High Table and how they are now directly behind John Wick. The writing is crisp, and every sequence is well thought out and concludes everything that happened to John.
This time, the villain is a young man who is arrogant, but his purpose is not just to wipe off John Wick but the idea of John Wick that sets an example for others to raise their voice. Despite the ultimate chaos and crazy action, these moments shape a cathartic tale. Everyone keeps asking John where all this will end, but no one says it aloud – on John Wick’s death.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is the best film in the franchise so far because it keeps its heart in the right place even when so much is happening. Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Lauren Fishburne, and Ian McShane deliver standout performances, bringing humour to the darkest situations.
The action sequences, choreographed and staged brilliantly by Chad Stahelski, are a spectacle to behold. The DOP, Dan Laustsen, captures the world beautifully with breathtaking shots. The music by Tyler Bates and Joel J. Richard adds to every scene’s intensity.
In conclusion, John Wick: Chapter 4 is a must-watch movie with thrilling action, humour, and heart. The franchise continues to impress with its world-building, performances, and storytelling; the fourth instalment is no exception.
