John Wick is at a boiling point. Feel it!
Hands up, down and sideways, the best American martial arts movie in 2023 is John Wick: Chapter 4 (JW4) as he returns under more attritional circumstances. Turn on the end of the 2023 Saturday night floodlights for all to see, it is a film where its very essence of what it is, how it is, and where it can take us into 2024, where it might just mute all other martial art films next year.
