The series is less effective when examining myths and stories so each glimpse into the machinations of the fearsome high table in Parbaellum/i> feels more leaden and tedious than exciting or provocative.
The film has so many plots and subplots that one loses track of them. The only reason you want to make sense of them is because of Keanu Reeves, who makes you believe there is more to his character than mindless action.
It's rather like when Bond films went from Sean Connery to Roger Moore. Plenty of people will find this copacetic. A few will grouse about what's been lost: a touch of the real amid the merely fantastic.
Although such testosterone-dripping nonsense seems beyond criticism, there is always that nagging problem with these Wick epics where the dour, po-faced seriousness of tone sits ill with the messily black-comic gruesomeness...
The choreography and the black-transparent look of that section of the film gave it a jolt and, for a while, a reason to exist. The rest lacked anything as involving, despite the aggressive, nonstop complication of every second of the film.
A total contradiction. It sets a new bar for action in the moment, but suffers cumulatively for it. As its universe grows larger, it gets less compelling, and the screenplay creates all kinds of problems for Wick that it can't satisfactorily resolve.
