    I saw this with my dad on Sunday morning. I had not seen part 3 so perhaps I was out of the loop on certain events. I really enjoyed Caine (as a huge Donnie Yen fan), but I think the biggest takeaway was Shamier Anderson whose role in my opinion deserves a spinoff of some sort. The movie on a whole could have just benefitted from a little less action (I know it sounds weird) and a little more story. The action was so intense (the XD theater was probably some to blame here) and so frequent that the whole time I wanted some break from what was going on and give these characters a little more meat. Make me care a little more. Good movie, but could have been great if they would just slow down.

    Also, is John Wick freaking Robocop? Seriously, the falls this guy takes and gets back up a few minutes later. It’s quite insane.

    BTW, it should be noted there is an end-credits scene, it gives us a tiny insight of what perhaps is in store for John Wick 5.
