John Wick Changed Action Movies And You Barely Noticed

If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper Style, grace and elegance aren't terms usually associated with modern American action movies. The genre is full of high-octane explosions, brutality, and bloodshed. But when it comes to the craft of filmmaking, they can often be unmemorable. John Wick changed all that. The Keanu Reeves-led revenge thriller is epically violent, but it's elegant violence, captured in a way we don't get to see too often. The character's sharp suits and sharper shooting have left a huge mark on the action movie landscape, including in a few ways you might not yet have noticed. Here's how John Wick rewrote the rules for modern action...

John Wick is awesome on many levels.

+Muzaffard36 lol you must be triggered person idk why, but Keanu is a man who focus, don't forget he learnt a lot of martial arts too before performing this movie. Keanu also a gun-man in real life so it's kinda amazing to see he shoots in John Wick saga. For me, no one can replace Keanu for this role. He clearly suitable on any aspect for this character.

Love to see a Wick and Atomic Blonde cross over....
John Wick (1 month ago)
I agree
Rhee Fornil (1 month ago)
oh. my. god! i totally agree! can't wait for the third chapter...
Muzaffard36 (1 month ago)
John Wick is overrated whether you accept it or not, it honestly disgust me to even see a guy like Keanu Reeves in an action movie when there were millions of deserving actors who could have taken the role. If it wasn't for popularity, Reeves would have been sucking indie movies.

Personally I prefer John Wick over the Daniel Craig Bond films. Gun Fu was also in another film, Equilibrium starring Christian Bale.

The movie Man From Nowhere was the main influence of John Wick!
Cade Plaisance (9 days ago)
This title is very presumptuous. I have actually noticed because Keanu Reeves is on of my favorite actors. People pay close attention to the things they like.
Dalibor Dupor (9 days ago)
John Wick really has Max Payne vibe.

We Love John Wick because he avenged his dog!
CRUSTYDOGTAINT (14 days ago)
What I love about John Wick is how he doesn’t feel invincible, like in most other action films. He gets shot, he breaks bones, and you can tell what he’s doing is actually taking a lot of energy/focus.
CRUSTYDOGTAINT (14 days ago)
The title of the video starts at 4:45
Habilidade Animal (14 days ago)
Is good, because there is no female empowerment like every other movie in this decade.

Gun-Fu technique was initiated in movie Equilibrium. John Wick made me love the action genre again. Looking forward for JW3.

I watched john wick twice in a row my first time. That great
Robert Rolfe (16 days ago)
Those wide shots are why I usually like asian action movies. I hate camera cut aways every two seconds in Western action flicks.

@Looper Just because a good movie was produced, you discard the millions of previous good movies.

First was great, second one was pointless. Not sure why even create third one

John Smith (18 days ago)
It's pretty funny how the feminist try to copy what the men movies. The did that the Ghost Busters and it completely destroyed the franchise. Same with Oceans 11. The only franchise they have not tarnished yet is the 007 franchise.

go and watch the raid redemption and raid 2, you will realize what action means
Ryan Harris (18 days ago)
I love John Wick, action done perfectly

John wick change the level of what an action movie is made of.

Lack of music in some scenes made it 1000000 times more impactful

The Raid and The Raid 2 are my favorite action movies, the choreography and cinematography were insane, and they were brutal as hell

very much appreciate the non-shaky cam uncutness - and frankly richly colorful beauty - of the Wick world

Now we'll see a John Wick Cinematic Universe.?

John wick Looks like markiplier
Dee Mendoza (26 days ago)
And I thought I can never love another action movie more than Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill until John Wick happened!
Jon Samuel (26 days ago)
I love John Wick because of Keanu and the dog. The technicalities are just bonuses.
MOUNTAINMANJJ (26 days ago)
When style, grace, and elegance are mentioned in the same sentence as action movies, Bond comes to mind....James Bond.
Michu 67 (26 days ago)
gun-fu... what about " Equilibrium " ? I agree and admire Keanu but you can not forget Christian Bale , am I right?
Sharya Dahlinsimo (26 days ago)
Don't you just love when people tell you: ''You're an idiot for not recognizing what happened here'' ''Did you really not notice, dummy?'' This title is obnoxious and insulting.

The Continental is fresh but not original, the idea of refuge offered by, coincidentally a hotel appeared earlier in a 1995 Hong Kong movie Peace Hotel starring Chow Yun-Fat.

Mike Evans (27 days ago)
Actually the raid movies changed it..John wick came later..it was the best but definitely came from the raid
Milton Tavares (26 days ago)
I agree.The Raid films ressurected the action films and opened the door for future films.John Wick por example.
TLR Sexuality (28 days ago)
How about the fact that he actually gets hurt and shows it while fighting?
Prateek Choudhary (28 days ago)
Daredevil netflix series' fighting style, feels inspired from this too
George Zebold (28 days ago)
I can't help but feel like this is what hit man was but just didn't take off the same as John wick
MassiveKitten Fire (28 days ago)
Dredd deserves an honorable mention
Heru Santoso (28 days ago)
John wick and the Raid is kind of action movie with minimum or no CGI
travin stelon (29 days ago)
In part 2. Subway fight was very bad.
Prakasa Adnan (29 days ago)
John wich and the raid made huge impact of action movie. The actor need train properly and not depent to shacky camera.

Tbh The Equalizer deserves just as much credit imo. They were released in the same month and both contained that beautiful and sophisticated violence.

K Mat (30 days ago)
As much as I like John Wick, the Man from nowhere did it first and much better. To this day I still haven't seen a movie pull off action as smooth as that movie.
Regan Orr (30 days ago)
Whatever they did..I love it. John Wick is amazing can’t wait for part 3
Maurice Ingol (30 days ago)
John Wick only Americanized Asian films! The Raid left such an impact in 2011, The Expendables (2010) and The Expendables 2 (2012) are night and day when it comes to the action sequences or “gun fu” and John Wick was no exception in 2014. Hollywood was already changing years before John Wick was released.

John wick is not the boogeyman.. he killed the boogeyman
