"The movie is gorgeous, met all expectations and even more. I had time to laugh and cry, to feel joy and pride in being a woman and to feel female unity. We all have common problems and if we don't fight with each other, don't quarrel over trifles and don't let ourselves be pushed around, we can overcome everything", — adeline666.

"A good light adventure movie ala New Jumanji. Feels like really playing a board game. In places good and appropriate situational jokes. At the same time there is a childlike naivety and no vulgarity", — Abror_X.

This is the most atypical picture of Guy Ritchie's career. In the film there is no trademark black humor, long witty dialogues, and crazy crimes.

The guy wants to turn down the job, but High Table threatens his daughter.
The ending of the movie has been left open, it is also still unknown if there will be a fifth installment of "John Wick". The sequel was announced back in the summer of 2020 and was planned to be shot at the same time as the fourth film, but the idea was abandoned by Chad Stahelski due to a request from Keanu Reeves, who had doubts about the need to continue the franchise.
"'John Wick 4' was certainly the most outstanding of all the versions. The movie is similar to the previous versions, it also has a little bit of dialog and various chatter, more action, action, dynamics if you want - in general, all three hours of viewing is a particular "mess" in this he probably became the most distinguished from its previous versions. Fans should definitely watch it", — DenisMikheev.

This is the latest installment of Guardians of the Galaxy to be directed by James Gunn: he now runs the DC movie studio. The director managed to come up with the perfect ending for the characters: somewhere it is very touching, and somewhere — even sad.
"James Gunn should direct all Marvel movies, because this turned out gorgeous. Not a movie, but an emotional swing, appropriate humor, great action, musical accompaniment - everything is on the level. A worthy conclusion to the trilogy. One of the few Marvel movies in 4-5 phases that one wants to revisit", — gkalian.
