5 Reasons You Should Watch 'John Wick: Chapter 4'

The movie par excellence.

By Culture Editor

In 2014, we saw 'John Wick' movie raised the bar of masculinity with high-octane, well-dressed scenes.

With a budget of only $ 20 million, John Wick: Chapter 1 made up to $ 80 million, and that was the beginning of film tetralogy that is known for its artistic and entertainment excellence.

An in-depth analysis of the John Wick: Chapter 4 can easily span an entire literary thesis numbering in the hundreds of pages. So without further adieu, here are the 5 reasons you should watch John Wick: Chapter 4 movie.

  1. A strong script

The script is the foundation for any movies. In 'John Wick', we saw a family man, friendship, and code of honor showcased that are extremely rare in modern movies.

Combined with the 'imperfection' of John Wick, who, despite his elite assassin abilities, can still succumbed to injury and felt exhausted. There are no superpowers to help John Wick throughout his journey.

These factors are the reason why the movie is relatable to us. The reluctant person commit to a cause he know he will not be successful, a sense of mortality that the time is running up, and the fact that we are all mortal.

  1. The landmarks

We all craved for escapism. For this reason, the movie wowed us by showcasing the best of the East (Osaka, Japan), the West (Berlin, Germany and Paris, France), where the action scenes in each location are presented in unique way.

In Japan, we can see many ancient Japanese weapons such as katanas, shurikens and even Japanese bows. All these weapons are combined with Kung-Fu combat and modern technology that adds an interesting twist to the action scene.

In Berlin, we saw the relationship of killer gangs unlike any other. Including Christian Orthodox rituals that have a unique charm.

And in Paris, France, in addition to the non-stop action scene at the Arc de Triomphe, we saw a majestic scenery overlooking the entire city of Paris at Sacré-Cœur, Paris as the backdrop of the final battle.

  1. Exciting score with the strongest stunt team

In addition to the perfectly designed action scenes, the score and the soundtrack of each song are powerful. It adds a lot of fun and heat to the action scene very well. The thrill of the music played during the fight made the adrenaline rush of the onlookers, resulting in a thrilling action scene.

Moreover, the strong stunt team made the action's punching or blocking gestures stand out. This meant that those who played the role of 'crushed' had to take on the injury, received a shock, or even fall from a height in a position that is beyond normal.

Both the music and the stunt team were one of the elements that have made John Wick: Chapter 4 such a success.

  1. French aristocracy and the implications of liberation

Marquis de Gramont, who is the villain on this movie, is a French nobleman appointed by the Senate to hunt down John Wick, is a man from extraordinary lineage.

Marquis is an inherited title of a a high-ranking noble position that was second only to the King and the Duke (like Raja, Tunku, and Tengku in Malaysia). Hence, its is not surprising that we see this character dressed impeccably in accordance with gentlemen tradition that has been passed by the forefathers from many generations. Along with living a life surrounded by a person with a lineage man (horse-riding, watching ballet at Palais Garnier, appreciating fine arts in the Louvre).

On top of that, the film also reveals many French Revolution paintings in The Louvre Paris, including the famous 'Liberty Leading People'. The plot as if describing the motion of ordinary people (John Wick) ready to overthrow the ruling class, with everything Wick has, in order to attain his own freedom.

  1. Breaking the mystery of the movie franchise

It is well known that the more the universe expands, the more chances it reach plateau and going downwards. But that adage doesn't seem to have any effect on the John Wick franchise. The movie recorded a high rating from various critics and a Rotten Tomato score (from critics) of up to 93% (Updated March 22, 2023 at 8:30 a.m.)

The reason this mystique can't do anything to the John Wick franchise is because of the film director Chad Stahelski has set up the core structure of this assassin universe exceptionally well from the start of the tetralogy. Comprising on the existence of the organization, the rules of the organization, as well as those who perform various functions that is involved in all the work of the killer.

It is this solid foundation that makes the John Wick universe strong and exceptional.

In an era where 'value for money' has become the main factor in many people's decision to buy movie tickets, it makes sense to watch a movie that is truly worth your time. In this regard, we guarantee that John Wick: Chapter 4 is definitely worth the ticket.

If you appreciate gentlemen's code, such as being well-dressed, being a man with principle, and appreciation of gentlemen lifestyle, this movie should not be missed. You can enjoy the full action scenes beginning March 22, 2023 in theaters.
