What to Expect From John Wick: Chapter 4

John Wick is a legendary hitman who was once a top enforcer for the New York Russian crime syndicate. He tried to retire but after the death of his wife and dog, he was once again drawn into the criminal underworld of his past.

In the previous three movies, we’ve seen John Wick complete a blood oath, break a sacred rule at the Continental, be excommunicated and wage war against the High Table (a council of crime lords).

That sets things up for a pretty exciting next instalment and, according to the reviews, it’s one you won’t want to miss out on.

John Wick 4 debuted at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes – a near-perfect score!
