As I’ve said again and again on Twitter and on the site, I absolutely loved John Wick. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action thriller that’s absolutely worth your time and money. When I recently hosted a screening in NYC, there were plenty of laughs, gasps, and tons of applause during the incredible action set pieces. In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. Trust me, if you like action movies, this is a must see film. For more on John Wick, watch this trailer, see Evan shoot people in the face, and here’s all our previous coverage.
Last week in New York City I sat down with Keanu Reeves for an extended interview. He talked about how he got involved in the film, script changes, the challenge of shooting the various action sequences, the universal appeal of John Wick and the character motivation, if he’ll direct again, if he’d be willing to star in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, his hopes for the John Rain limited TV series that he’s also doing with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, future projects including the courtroom drama The Whole Truth and the Eli Roth horror movie Knock Knock, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
