John Wick: Chapter 4 Review: Death Is The Only Freedom

Hollywood once again received a masterpiece action movie. It is not about a flying superhero, but a man with a gun. The film begins with John planning his vengeance on the High Table while hiding underground with the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne). Wick then travels to Morocco in search of the Elder (George Georgiou). He asked Elder to give him the ring and his freedom, but Elder refused. As a result, John kills Elder. The next scene takes place in the New York Continental Hotel, where manager Winston Scott (Ian McShane) and his staff Charon (Lance Reddick) are summoned before the Marquis Vincent de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård) for failing to kill John.

De Gramont then throws Winston out of the New York Continental Hotel manager and kills Charon. De Gramont hired Caine (Donnie Yen), a blind, retired High Table assassin and old friend of John’s, to kill him by threatening to murder his daughter. John moves to Osaka Continental, which is run by John’s old friend Shimazu Koji (Hiroyuki Sanada). But the High Table assassins reach the Osaka Continental and search for John. But Shimazu Koji refused to let them in, and as a consequence, they started attacking. Akira (Rina Sawayama), Koji’s daughter, will also join the fight. Akira will be shot during the fight, and Koji tells John how to escape.

Caine kills Koji during a fight and lets his daughter escape. John then returns to New York, where he meets a vengeful Winston at Charon’s grave. Winston told John that if he challenged De Gramont to a duel, he would be free of his obligation to the High Table. John travels to their Berlin headquarters to obtain a new crest denoting his membership in the syndicate. Katia (Natalia Tena), his adopted sister, accepts in return for killing Killa (Scott Adkins), a German High Table senior who murdered her father.

John will find out about Killa’s nightclub and beat him to death with the help of Mr. Nobody (Shamier Anderson) and Caine. John goes back to Katia, and she will brand John’s arm with a Ruska Roma crest, enabling John to formally request a duel with de Gramont through Winston. In Paris, John and de Gramont decide the parameters of their duel, in a meeting with the Harbinger, the Table’s emissary. De Gramont nominates Caine to fight in his place. The duel is to take place the following sunrise at Sacré-Coeur; the Harbinger informs John that both he and Winston will be executed should he fail to appear on time. The Bowery King arrives in Paris to give John a weapon and a new ballistic suit.

De Gramont will attempt to kill John with a $40 million contract in the final battle. But, on his way to Sacré-Coeur, John kills all of the assassins. John also saves Mr. Nobody’s dog, so he decided to help John.
