Yes I did like this plot because a straight to the point action plot.
I like the movie.
Good Bits: The fight scenes are really good. I like the scene between john wick & Cassian (a crime lords bodyguard as they have mutual respect). I like the line said by Laurence Fishburne’s character “can someone get this man a gun” & the film ends on a cliff hanger.
