    I enjoyed the film a lot as a whole. As usual, it was a gorgeous movie to look at, but to me it seemed like the emphasis on color and cinematography wasn't QUITE as strong as it was on the first two films. Still very pretty, just felt like they concentrated more on the action sequences in this one. Speaking of the fights, they were great.. the beginning fight with the book, the knife fights, and the motorcycle chase. All good shit. Halle Berry was cool. Always a pleasure to see Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne. The concierge is great too.

    I liked seeing the world opened up a bit more, and I liked learning a little bit more about the high table / enforcers / John's background..still, not a lot of plot here though. Sort of a John Wick 2.5 like someone mentioned earlier..there wasn't really an ending here.

    STILL, that said, I liked it a lot...just not as much as the first two. JW1: A, JW2: A+, JW3: B+

    Also, kinda wanna rewatch and tally up just how many words John says throughout the flick..it's gotta be like 100 or something.

    Saw it yesterday, loved it. Never saw anything before like the dog sequence! I'm sure Halle will be back in part 4.

    I'm torn...I might do the same thing, but I enjoy being in the theater for action flicks

    Saw it yesterday and totally loved it allthough I had some gripes with it. Didn't like Halle Berry's character too much, yet it made up for some great variations for the fights. And while it was a nice idea to have some more backstory on John I wasn't really feeling it. The movie itself felt a little bit too cramped as well, but overall I still enjoyed it and had a great time at the movies. The book, the motorcycles, the horses... perfect! We walked out of the cinema and got very excited for the fourth movie!

    LOVED the hell out of JWIII <3 Went into it with cautious expectations since JWII let me down, was visually sexy but failed to deliver as a whole package, imo. Glad to see they recognized where their strengths lie with this one. The dog scenes were amazing. Also love how they keep peeling layers to show us this underground assassin world.

    100% this.
    I loved the first one, and then was stoked for the 2nd, but left the theater disappointed. The second one really didn't do anything for me at all. This one though, fantastic film!
