The Return of John Wick in Chapter 3 Parabellum

Please be advised, this blog post contains mild spoilers for John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2.

Go Along for the Ride

Do you love dogs, ruthless competence, and revenge? In the first John Wick film, when the titular character uttered the words "it's personal" with chilling calm, it was personal for me too. I was ready to suit up and go along for the ride in a quest for vengeance. The John Wick series is what I consider to be the ideal summer blockbuster - tightly choreographed fight scenes, snappy dialogue, and flashy cinematography. In a sea of a dime a dozen action flicks, the John Wick franchise has made a name for itself by truly caring about the details - inspiring minutely researched fan made infographics that detail the protagonist's realistic ammunition reloading and more.

In John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum our leading man returns with a bounty on his head and enemies around every corner, but can this installment live up to its predecessors? Check out the trailer below and judge for yourself! It's already a win in my book 👍 !

What About the Dogs?

But let's get into the real issues here. The questions most on my mind are what kind of dogs will be featured in John Wick 3 and will they survive the film's 143 minutes run time? The franchise has historically been rough on the fictional fate of Keanu Reeve's canine co-stars. Photographic evidence of Halle Berry on set show the addition of two Belgian Malinoisopens a new window to the mix, but questions remain about the fate of John Wick 2's Pit Bull.

If like me, you have a deep emotional attachment to fictional pets and want an advanced warning, I recommend this handy site: Does the Dog Dieopens a new window.

You'll Love the Soundtracks

Not only is the cinematography of the John Wick films great, but the music will captivate you as well! The music does a great job of complementing and expanding on the visuals of the film. It gives the film an extra dramatic tone. Listen to the soundtracks and see for yourself.
