For fans of: All the action, Keanu, the cutest dogs being avenged, revenge thrillers, Nobody, Taken

“Yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.”

Ex-hitman John Wick comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.

The 2014 action-packed revenge thriller that launched one of the top modern franchises. Bottom line: Don’t mess with Keanu Reeves’ dog. 

Shane says: A must-see master work of action cinema and the ultimate comeback for Keanu Reeves’ career, come watch the neon-soaked, broody murder-marathon that revolutionized the way Western action films are made. Bonus: this one has Willem Dafoe!

101 mins | 2014 | Action/Revenge Thriller/Keanu Flick
Rated R

Directed by Chad Stahelski
