John Wick (2014)

Director(s): David Leitch, Chad Stahelski. Cast: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe, Alfie Allen, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane. 101 min. Rated R. China/Canada/USA. Action/Thriller.

Russian mob kills the dog of an ex-hitman that was a gift from his recently deceased wife, and he ventures to take revenge. That's all folks! The rest is just numerous highly-stylized action sequences with very loud music. Keanu Reeves continues on his quest to remain "The One", but the result is similar to the action movies Arnold, Bruce Willis and Mel Gibson used to do in the 80s and 90s. And Alfie Allen (the guy who lost his you-know-what in Game of Thrones) continues to play the greatest loser of all time.

PS: The font style of the Russian subtitles switched mid-movie, making me feel the film was directed by two directors. Lo and behold! I later discovered the film truly had two directors.
