In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
The events in the movie are set in 2014, but the "accountants" are shown typing on a Commodore VIC-20 (with the logo blacked out) which is over three decades old.
The VIC-20 wasn't capable of the smooth text shown; its screen was limited to 176×184 pixels at its highest resolution. The green-on-black text shown is almost identical to the system screens from the Matrix. See more »
As happens in most movies and TV shows, forearm suppressors are portrayed as 'silencers". Suppressors do not muffle a gunshot, they simply reduce (suppress) some of the cracking sound created as a bullet departs the barrel of a firearm in excess of the speed of sound. Every person within at least 100 feet of any gunfight in the movie, especially the enclosed space of the subway station, would have heard almost every shot fired. See more »
Mindless repetitive action...no story, no drama, he can kill 100 guys at the same time...
And all of this equals boredom. 2 hours of the same thing over and over. A movie for young teens who judge movies as they do video games; the more kills, the better. After the 30th guy got his head blown off, it became totally boring to me. John Wick gets hit by a car 6 times, gets thrown down a flight of stairs 10 times, gets punched and kicked 500 times...and yet he keeps fighting. He fights 30 guys at the same time, with a gun or without, and he always wins. There is zero plot, zero character development, zero drama...it's all mindless action. And repetitive. Fistfights, guns, and cars. Nothing else. Nothing creative. Well they tried to be creative a couple times...like wasting 15 minutes with a woman doing an elaborate yet gross suicide...and for no reason other than to slap something 'original' up on the screen. It was completely pointless. How this movie is rated highly is beyond me. Like I say, it must be young teens who judge movies on number of kills. PS - I'm not exaggerating. The main bad guy simply puts a message into his phone, and within 3 minutes, literally the entire city is out to kill John Wick. So he has to fight 30 guys at a time, killing 500 guys within 20 minutes or so. Mind-numbingly stupid and boring.
