Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Emmanuel Baez @ Cinéfiloz [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Holy shit! That was amazing.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: It’s hard to imagine just how franchise director Chad Stahelski and star Reeves are going to top Chapter 3, the most action-packed and outrageously violent of the series to date…That the film is such a treat for the eyes is gilding the lily.
  • [New] | Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum is another installment of violent, unrelenting, epically-choreography action that has just enough story — and intrigue — to keep you wanting more.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It has everything one would want in an action film that manages to not only satisfy as a sequel, but it continues raising the bar for the genre.
  • Blake Howard @ Dark Horizons
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: An eye-popping, jaw-dropping, show-stopping next chapter that extends the world-building beautifully, whilst assigning meaningful resonance to the character-driven action
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Modern noir god Keanu Reeves again stalks a fantasy(ish) world of exhausting, inventive violence. But this time, the curtain is drawn back on the sham of seeming orderliness in its world (and ours).
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Parabellum solidifies our addiction to John Wick. The quirky contemporary/medieval world expands to more exotic locales and offers new supporting characters to keep things fresh…along with dozens of DIY ways to kill bad guys.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: John Wick: Chapter 3 raises the bar on action sequences.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: John Wick, the perpetually drenched hitman whose Tinder profile surely reads “Must Love Dogs”, continues his kill-streak in the wild Parabellum.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The filmmakers have thus created something more akin to a musical than your generic actioner wherein the choreography and players serve as visual lyrics augmenting the pared down plot punctuated by staccato bursts of detail.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: There’s so much great variety in all the shootouts, fist fights, motorcycle chases, and horse chases that it’s hard not to applaud all the work that went into setting up so many successful set pieces…
  • Eddie Pasa @ Gunaxin
    • Excerpt: John Wick – Chapter 3: Parabellum chucks the rules of the first two out the window to make way for a balls-out game of “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor.”
  • Scott Phillips @ The Movie Isle
  • Don Shanahan @ Every Movie Has a Lesson
    • Excerpt: The finale is not the time to lose your edge. If you reversed the action sequence order of this third film, you would have a movie that peaks instead of sags.
