Sex & Nudity

  • There is quite a long shooting scene in a night club. The girls there are wearing quite few clothes.
  • John is shown from the stomach up in the shower. Majority of scene is from his back.
  • Brief kiss between a couple in memory flashes.
  • A sequence of scenes takes place in a bath house, where there are women in bikinis. The scene is very dark and nothing sexual is shown, or takes place.

Violence & Gore

  • John pierces a henchman with a knife twice before getting stabbed somewhere between the armpit and shoulder
  • A woman shoots a man in the head through a pillow in his head a little blood is seen on the pillow
  • A man is shot through the ear (blood spurts)
  • Someone is stabbed in the heart and blood is seen on the knife, this can be quite painful and uncomfortable to watch and may make people cringe as it happens
  • Despite having lots of shootouts and stabbing overall it's not that graphic with how fast it is. Most of the time the violence boils down to a gunshot and a small mist of blood
  • The main issue with the movie is the nonstop violence, consisting of shooting, martial art fighting and cars ramming into people. All of the violence is stylized. Little blood can sometimes be seen during the action sequences.
  • Two men fight in the rain. One of the men gets stabbed with a knife, but stabs his opponent back, killing him. The fight is not graphic, but intense due to how the setting is in the rain and how the protagonist is injured.
  • Intense action scenes throughout, with John Wick (Keanu Reeves) killing many henchman.

Profanity

  • Some of the profanity is spoken in Russian
  • 41 uses of "fuck", 10 uses of "shit", 3 uses of "bitch", 1 use of "pussy", 1 use of "cocksucker."

  • A man makes and uses marijuana briefly.
