…the “John Wick” movies recently. I know, “a bit far fetched”, maybe. But one thought struck me…
This was one man, against impossible odds, but he had a characteristic that no others had – an absolutely focused will!
In almost all the fight scenes (there were so many) he despatched dozens of opponents with two or three shots each and the last was always a head shot, making sure of the finality of their death so they couldn’t recover and rise up again!
There was no mercy shown!
In the two films that have been released so far John was “retired”, because he chose love. He was reluctant to fight, but when he had to, he did, in clear, concise, and no uncertain terms, with no quarter given!
The second film revealed three things…
When faced with “an impossible task” that enabled his retirement, he had to rely on help that would come back to challenge him, another “impossible task”, and that even after fulfilling his “marker” he would be left targeted himself!
He understood the unfairness of his situation and realised that in order to “finish it” he had to break the rules. Up until then he had obeyed them, even to reluctantly fulfilling his “marker” (made in blood)!
When faced with having to pay the price of “breaking the rules”, which was being made incommunicado globally with a bounty on his head by all, he said “Tell them, tell them all, that whoever comes I will kill them. I will kill them all!” And the response from the man who was excommunicating him was “Oh, I know you will!”
The inference is that John Wick was chosen for, and to do, just that – “kill them all”, the elite underworld that rules the world!
P.S. “John Wick 3” hasn’t been made/released yet, but we are left with the impression at the end of part two that there will be a “part three”.
Interestingly “Q” has told us that what is happening, and is going to be happening, is a three-part movie sequence!
In the meantime…
