Reaves' character never obtains mythic stature, he's just a pissed off assassin. Instead of using Reaves' ability to project uber-cool, he was asked to EMOTE. So stupid. Not worth my time, or anyone else's.
Wick, not Wicke. We enjoyed it, it had the appropriate mix of action and cartoonish violence, plus Theon Greyjoy being metaphorically emasculated. 60% on our personal Metacritic score.
