Chapter 4 Early reactions promise Wick’s best movie yet

Even with John Wick: Chapter 4’s longer running time, it sounds like critics are calling it worth the extra time. Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend admitted that he is concerned about the epic length, but the film more than deserves it.

Kirsten Acuna of Insider was less thrilled with the long running time, but praised the film, saying “That’s what we’re going to the movies to see.” She also tweeted that Donnie Yen is an “AMAZING addition to the series”, which is music to the ears of anyone who is also unhealthily obsessed with the “Ip Man” series (like yours).

Hunter Bolding massively claimed the film was “the easiest of the best in the series”, which is really high praise considering all three previous “John Wick” movies, well, the fucking rule. Bolding’s responses were part of a thread where he also stated that Donnie Yen was stealing the show. I mean, duh. he is Donnie Yen!

/Movie, Vanessa Armstrong agrees with Bolding, going so far as to declare it “the best movie [she’s] I’ve seen for ages!” Considering how packed 2022 was with amazing titles, that’s really high praise. And of course we know and love Armstrong here, so we’re happy to take her word for it.

Insider’s Eammon Jacobs wasn’t as excited as some other critics, saying “The thrilling action is brilliantly done, but the story was silly – then again, we’re all here to see Keanu Reeves kick ass and he does it so damn well .” As far as I’m concerned, that’s still quite a compliment! Jacobs shared some additional thoughts in the thread and admitted he struggled with the 3 hour runtime. But he drew attention to Rina Sawayama, saying that she is so good that she deserves her own spin-off. WE ARE FOR IT!

But the positive feedback doesn’t end there. People from publications around the world can’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed John Wick: Chapter 4, and that’s exciting news for action fans everywhere. Here are what other critics have said about the film in their own words.

I’ll be honest, I spent some time looking for genuinely negative reviews for this movie to add some balance, but I really couldn’t find any. (Of course, this will change after the release of the film.) But apart from some people who find the film a bit too long for their tastes, the reaction seems to be overwhelmingly positive. It’s always a great day when people have good things to say about cool movies.

John Wick: Chapter 4 will hit theaters on March 24, 2023.
