There’s some intriguing stuff right here – why is Wick on talking phrases with Winston, after being mercilessly betrayed by him on the finish of Chapter 3? Will that teased team-up with Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King truly repay? Can they provide some narrative momentum for John Wick incomes his freedom with out wrapping the saga up? And can we ever get bored with listening to Keanu emphasise the phrase “…gun”? (OK, we all know the reply to that one: nope.)
