John Wick: Chapter 3 has started filming.

Please, God, don’t let it suck.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s ‘Excommunicado’ – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.

I mean, we got lucky with John Wick: Chapter 2.  They could have gotten another dog for John to avenge, but instead the people making the movie decided to write up an entire underground criminal fraternity and associated underworld rivals, associates, and support staff. This was probably wise: as I’ve noted before, the John Wick series are movie adaptations of a video game that never actually existed, and if they manage to also get it right with John Wick: Chapter 3 then it’ll be quite the feat.  I think that they can, actually.

But there must not be a John Wick: Chapter 4.

    Not sure how they can justify saving Ares. Unlike the Cassian who Wicks purposely left alive as a professional courtesy, she was a goner.
