John Wick: Well Worn Trope in a Fresh World!

John Wick Is Cool - 10-23-14

Why would we go to see yet another hitman comes out of retirement to wreak vengeance movie?

Because it takes the reliable (okay, maybe overused) trope and reinvigorates it with style, a degree of wit and a unique world with unusual details. Also, Keanu Reeves at his best.
