  There are a lot of things to love about the «John Wick» movies (the latest, «Parabellum,» is «Chapter 3») but definitely one of them is how compressed it all is. By the end of this third entry only about three weeks have passed since the beginning of the first one. The beginning of «Parabellum» follows immediately from the end of the previous chapter. To emphasize: during this entire movie, John Wick sports an injury from «Chapter 2.» It adds a layer of tension and urgency to the proceedings, a feeling that there is no break Wick can catch, no time for him to take a breath. That commitment is bold, and someday when it's all over the entire thing is going to make a wonderful...Keep on reading: Super Review: ‘Parabellum’ is another excellent bone-breaking ‘John Wick’ saga
