“John Wick” aim to rebirth the star

The trailer opens up with John Wick (Keanu Reeves) being beaten up by some burglars, who then kill Wick’s dog.

The dog was the only legacy left from his dead wife. As the trailer progresses we find out that John Wick used to be a hitman and now his only goal is to complete his personal revenge.

The trailer is filled with action scenes that reveal how chaotic everything is going to be. Wick’s only desire is to accomplish his goal and he won’t stop at anything.

He is seen handling various weaponry. It varies from hand-guns to rocket launchers which tell us how much experience he had in the past as a hitman.

The movie though is supported with some humor and hopefully it will develop a good background story that will expand into Wick’s past.

His wife is shown only once in the trailer but maybe the movie will focus slightly more on her. The action scenes though look fun and well executed.

Throughout the whole trailer John Wick is a human Terminator, therefore unstoppable.

Many characters are introduced in the trailer but it seems that almost all of them have a beef with Wick.

Keanu Reeves looks fit for the movie.

Playing the role of an ex-hitman required him to be in shape but since 47 Ronin he didn’t seem to have a problem with that.

After the low popularity and bad box office results of 47 Ronin, Keanu Reeves is back for more.

Hopefully “John Wick” will be the movie that will give the star a good rebirth.
