    John Wick 3 to be released in theaters this summer.



    I'll confess to having enjoyed the first two. I'll probably go see this one too.

    Yup, it will be worth the babysitter fee.

    Still strange to watch Theodore Logan run lanes on a timer. Thanks YouTube!

    Just watched that yesterday, I do very much enjoy John Wick. There are some of his training videos on UTube from the movies that are very good. He actually seems to be a very down to earth person, especially for an actor.

    I hated him for all the wrong reasons. Speed comes to mind. Do a little research on him. As of now he is prolly the best of his profession besides Chris Pratt. Both are 2amnd. Supporters and shoot regularly.

    I enjoyed the first two movies, and am looking forward to seeing the third.

    I saw John Wick 3 last night. I was pleasantly surprised. They managed to advance the story and reveal more about the characters and the universe they're embedded in.

    The writers seem to be playing a little with ideas from complexity theory. As the plot advanced and more people get pulled into the fight, a commonly repeated phrase was, "all of this because of a dog?!" They also touch on the moral dilemma of living as a slave to a higher authority versus fighting to live as a free man.

    The movie was not without its product placements. Apparently, a STI Combat Master in 9mm super can defeat "latest advancements in body armor." In addition to STI, Kimber managed to get a direct mention in the movie. Various Glock flavors and a number of other guns had cameos in the movie, but they did not get any direct mentions. It will be interesting to see how this impacts the popularity of the 1911/2011 platform.

    EDIT: Reworded and clarified some ideas

    9x23 is a potent little round. With the right solid projectile it could prob defeat most level III body armor. Factory ammo is 124gr @ 1450fps. Mix in a 80gr or 90gr penetrator round and you’ll have some serious velocity.

    Apparently, Halle Berry trained at Taran Tactial for this movie (as, of course, did Keanu Reeves).
