In addition to the numbers the success of the saga commanded Chad Stahelski Not only in the public, but also in the reception and praise of the critics.
Although it’s on the horizon, the expansion of the saga has to wait for the anti-hero to drop his fan.

As for Reeves, he will appear in the 2024 John Wick spinoff Ballerina, but currently has no plans to continue John Wick directly.
How long do we have to wait for John Wick 5? We don’t know for sure, but the question is: How long will Hollywood wait for John Wick to recognize him from the Academy Awards?

Through his extensive experience as a stuntman, stunt coordinator and choreographer in films such as The Matrix, V for Vendetta and The Hunger Games, Stahelski knows that The first recognition he wanted to receive from Hollywood was the establishment of a category at the Oscars dedicated to stuntmen: “I don’t think there’s anyone in the Academy or outside who wouldn’t agree that we’re one of the top nine departments,” the director told IGN in an interview.
While the amazing machine is lacking in terms of storytelling and visual design, with many VFX artists openly talking about low VFX work, homogenous films are remembered every year (Thor: Love and Thunder, or Ant-Man and the Wasp; Quantum, this concludes). John Wick stands for the highest level of entertainment in Hollywood; Saga is able to find the coolest action from an organic production that still has heart.
Son of John Wick delivers emotion and adrenaline with clarity, as well as accurate editing and editing and a sense of storytelling. Overhead beats as Tyler Bates’s electronic score challenges audiences and cinematographer Dan Laustsen’s sharp eye moves them on a mobile camera. The action ranges from the stark whites of New York’s Eye to the gold-veined blacks under the black bells of Rome, but the tone will be consistently operatic. The John Wick company has recalled the use of cinematic language in the action genre, putting in conscious use where it’s not about shooting because it only takes too long.
