A Look Back at the Donnie Yen-Keanu Reeves Fight in ‘John Wick 4’ with Director Chad Stahelski

John Wick 4

As Chad Stahelski pens his story for John Wick 4, he says finding the inspiration for the fight near the end was a natural choice. “That’s just how this happens in life,” he says.

In director Chad Stahelski’s upcoming action thriller John Wick: Chapter 3— Parabellum, Keanu Reeves, and Donnie Yen trade blows in an epic fight scene that lasts over five minutes and features some of their most perilous moves ever seen onscreen. But it seemed like such a no-brainer to Stahelski. “It’s a natural progression,” he says. “We have several fights [in the first two movies] and we have to top them, so you can only go bigger.”

Stahelski in particular felt the pressure: He directed John Wick 3 after his longtime stunt-work partner, David Leitch, helmed the first two installments in the series (he’s also Leitch’s latest collaborator on their Netflix film 6 Underground). But Stahelski was more than up to the task, as he was inspired by some of cinema’s greatest fight scenes—as well as one of its most infamous ones.

The film was directed by Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad. The cast includes Keanu Reeves, Owen Wilson, Halle Berry, and Laurence Fishburne.

Story of The John Wick 4

“Every story has an end,” making the title of this movie almost redundant. This is just an ordinary, everyday action movie. In other words, this film is as forgettable in its way as you can get.

It isn’t one of those action movies that bring about many nuances of character development for the protagonist and leave audiences with a good impression of what kind of person he/she has become after the events of the story take place. Rather, it offers nothing new and ultimately disappoints due to its monotonous plotline, bland characters, and straightforward dialogue.


Is Keanu Reeves in John Wick 5? Hear what Director has to say about it in the meanwhile

Fans of John Wick 5 were in for a real treat this week when it was revealed that the film may be happening with Keanu Reeves.

John Wick: Chapter 2, the sequel to 2014’s hit, is set to release this May 17th and by all accounts will not just be a filler sequel. The stakes are higher than ever before and with the world of assassins coming after John one can only imagine more thrill-seeking action sequences are on their way.

Keanu Reeves, who played the lead role in both films, has recently been asked whether or not there would be an upcoming third installment and he said “I think so”.
