John Wick Hex Emphasizes Strategy Over Action
John Wick is the definition of a classic action series. Beyond being an explosive no-holds-barred joy ride with minimal pee breaks, the films are incredibly innovative in regards to their filming bloody bare-knuckled brawls and headshot killstreaks that'd net 25 air strikes if they were in a Call of Duty game. While the movies are mere revenge plots spruced up with an espionage-tinged backdrop, John Wick's stylistic choices are compelling enough to offset the well-worn tropes. John Wick isn't just style-over-substance; its style is the substance.
