Here’s what people are saying:
Vineeth S gives the film 5 stars. They write, “The third chapter may not be as engaging as the second one…but still it’s a hell lot of fun….and the action is definitely a step up from the predecessor.”
Alan L gives the movie 5 stars. He writes, “Third chapter did not disappoint! JW3 was better than that “snapping finger” movie for me!”
Eugene B gives the movie 4.25 stars. He writes, “John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum continues the brutal, spectacular action sequences that have defined the franchise, thanks to the constant efforts of Keanu Reeves. While the film’s plot isn’t bulletproof you ultimately exit in awe over how much action and exhilarating thrills transpired over the course of two-plus-hours.”
Joaquin P gives it 5 stars. He writes, “getting better and better!!!”
Alex B gives the movie 5 stars was well. They write, “More action and violence that all 2018 and 2019 movies combined. With breathtaking stunt work and some outstanding comic bits. Basically a movie that will shake your senses and raise your adrenaline level higher than even games.”
Frank C gives it 5 stars. He writes, “Just when you thought John Wick 2 couldn’t be outdone this universe-expanding, jaw-dropping, morgue-filling freight train crashes into theaters and leaves you itching for chapter 4.”
Zach A also gives it 5 stars. He writes, “Loved it! Best of the three! Love the world expansion as well”
Jonathan M gives it 4.5 stars. He writes, “This was a masterpiece, pissed by one thing, I am sure everyone knows what it is. Otherwise a perfect movie. You can tell that in every scene there is love from the director, actors, producers, actually every single person in the film. It was beauty.”
Heather L gives it 2.5 stars. She writes, “Unfortunately as much as I wanted to like this, and I definitely loved “pieces” of it, the story felt incomplete. It was like a series of action set pieces picking up immediately at the end of John Wick 2 (which had a full story before we got to his excommunication) and instead of a full story, 3 just ends on another To Be Continued. Loved Keanu’s performance. Loved the fight choreography. Adored Halle Berry. But this needed a more complete tale within the movie because frankly this one now requires the next one (Think Matrix 2, and when Matrix 3 wasn’t great, Matrix 2 kind of sucked after).”
Toni O gives the film 2 stars. They write, “A parody of the previous John Wick movies. This saga has followed a similar path to “The Matrix” trilogy. And they dare to continue making more.”
The reviews aren’t as exhilarating on Metacritic. The User Score is currently an 8.4 with 31 positive reviews, 1 mixed, and 4 negative.
Here’s what people on Metacritic are saying:
Tantri gives the movie a 10. They write, “John wick movie has been my favorite since I first watched it and this chapter 3 has amaze me once again. Since I’m Indonesian, I am also very proud for the 2 characters from Indonesia whose playing on it.”
djbatt gives the film an 8. They write, “Great fighting scenes visual is nicely done script could be better money well spent.”
LamontRaymond gives the film a 6. They write, “I think some of these respected critics are drinking the Kool-Aid here. Sure, it’s a fun action flick with the great fight choreography, but in the 70’s?? Nah. Not even close to the first one, in my mind. The world building, the origin story, etc. – None of that is present here. And Asia Kate Dillon brings VERY little to the table. They never establish her has an evil or negative force that scares you.”
grove2121 gives the film a 2. They write in part, “I watched it. This is what i think about it. It’s bad. Whatever you call it: Netflix adaptation/idocracy/ Gun Circus. First chapter was convincing. Second one had some stupidity i’ve forgiven it for. But this time it comes to a moment when you just want to stand up and say: “That’s not what i want to watch”. A lot of inappropriate gags. Characters act retarded at some scenes. Film’s atmosphere breaks too often with stupid character’s actions…Just forget, burn and bury the idea of watching this movie.”
