John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019)


Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Rating: 4.0/5

There's a person on the board below John for 2 million. Also I don't understand. His excommunicado is expiring but I thought that protection is only relevant on Continental grounds. But here he is on the street and no one wants to touch him yet [I'm watching a YouTube video and apparently there are other places besides the Continental - marked by gold coins - which serve as neutral ground]
Smile. "I'd say the odds are about even." "Yes sir, Mr. Wick." (the cab driver knew who he was)
"Not if you can't spend it"
I feel like the only way way to best explain his survival is that he has inhuman regenerative abilities
Wow. Two shots. John didn't hesitate (to shoot the right locations)
Hehe.Taking the time to modify the gun.
Caption: knife piercing skull
Right into the eye.
Hehe. Pulls out knife only to have an axe thrown into the head.
While the premise of everyone wanted to kill him and the outcome of him surviving is unbelievable, it makes for an action-packed movie
He gets hit by two cars
He didn't pick up any guns or bullets while leaving the last place... odd from a survival perspective but sensible from a uniqueness in kills
Horse kick
Hehe. Drag by horse
I feel like instead of direct combat, taking him out with a sniper rifle would best
"You are bound and I am owed"
Seems like certain rules trump other rules...
Hmm. There are rules and rules are meant to be broken (or alternatively, just because there are rules, the problem is when people break them)
"rats with wings" (pigeons)
Hmm. This adjudicator vs the bowery. These rules don't really make much sense to me. Too convoluted...
Sofia says the marker doesn't mean anything now that he's ex communicado... that seems like B.S.
a pattern here is that someone does something on a marker, the benefit vs the cost suffers from the case of present-self vs future-self (that is, the present-self engages in the contract thinking that indeed any request in the future will be worth it; but the future-self will undoubtedly disagree)
Hmm. Curious on the "don't". Cause he shot her dog, which... I'm not sure how one measures John Wick's reasons for vengeance of his dog dying and here this...
Huh. There are two dogs attacking. Did she bring three dogs or did her dog not die from the attack? [Wikipedia article: "When Sofia refuses to give Berrada one of her trained Belgian Malinois, he shoots the dog but hits its bulletproof vest"]
Hmm. Will Wick have to go up against these Asian fighters? (they are taking out members of the Bowery)
hehe fealty but also go fuck yourself
I don't get it. if that was just the first wave and she expects to represent the winning side... why call for a parley.
hmm... clearly John understands Winston... no way was Winston shooting him a surprise... though it does seem hard to intentionally fall the way he did. interestingly Bowery King seems convinced that Winston betrayed John.
