Reeves plays the titular character in an almost perfectly constructed revenge flick. Wick is a mob assassin, who retires for a woman. When she dies of an unspecified disease, and someone kills the dog that was his last link to her, he goes on a rampage. A spectacularly choreographed rampage of epic proportions. I'm losing my taste for action movies, but I have to say ... this one is is pretty good. If you have to watch bloody action/revenge, this is the way it should be done.
