Your Brain Will Explode When John Wick Shoots You…

Now that is the kind of click-bait title that I’ll happily write!

John Wick was one of my favorite films from 2014. If you love action movies but haven’t seen it, you really should. Starring Keanu Reeves, the film tells the story of John Wick, a retired hitman out for revenge against the men who murdered his dog. It’s less wacky than you’d expect. Actually, it’s downright brutal at times. Throughout the film, Wick stylishly kills a lot of people.

Just how many people? Find out with this helpful supercut from Youtube user Nick DiNizio:

Those kills are even better when seen in context. Seriously, if you’re remotely interested in fun fast-paced action, go rent this movie.

This movie was such a labor of love for everyone involved. Filmed by two of Reeves’ stunt doubles, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Throughout the movie, there is a clear appreciation of high-octane, yet “realistic” action violence. Here’s an interview from Screen Rant with the directors:

Just in case I didn’t make this clear, I really enjoyed John Wick.
