For hardcore John Wick fans, the recent Lionsgate announcement of John Wick 4 & 5 being greenlit (and shot together) comes as a welcome respite amid all the bad news in 2020. The first trilogy (John Wick, John Wick Chapter 2 and John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum) ends with John ready to take on his “masters” at the high table. 2019’s Parabellum brings to an end the first chapter of a franchise that began with the greatest action movie premise in history – a man exacting revenge for the death of his puppy.

We’re excited to see what the sequels have in store, but before that, let’s recap the top 10 most ridiculous, beautiful and awesome John Wick kills from the franchise that kicked off the ‘Keanussance’ in the 2010s:

The kitchen slab nutcracker

John Wick

From: John Wick (2014)

Half an hour into the first movie, we finally get to know why John is feared as the Boogeyman, when he demonstrates how to crack a hitman’s nut on a kitchen slab.

Of course, a horse is a cannon

John Wick

From: John Wick 3: Parabellum (2019)

John pats a horse hard, horse kicks open an assassin’s head. The kill is both ridiculous and joyous.

John shows us a magic trick

John Wick

From: John Wick 2 (2017)

John Wick and Heath Ledger’s Joker have something in common – they can both make a pencil disappear.

John hates video gamers

John Wick

From: John Wick (2014)

Through most of the first movie, John Wick is a deadly, close quarter ‘Gun-fu’ kind of guy. Then he quickly switches gears and shows us his sniping skills, and his hatred for FPS video gamers.

Always borrow a hardbound book

John Wick

From: John Wick 3: Parabellum (2019)

John demonstrates that he is indeed a learned hitman – and is capable of effectively using not just a pencil, but a book in a library too.

John hates single-use plastic 

John Wick

From: John Wick (2014) 

Kidnapped, cornered and bound by Viggo and his men, John promptly announces he’s back. He’s then suffocated to an inch of his life in a plastic bag. He reciprocates the favour and shows his disdain for plastic bags by brutally dispatching the mob boss’ security head, hands still bound.

Reflections of the soul

John WickFrom: John Wick 2 (2017) 

Ruby Rose’s stylishly murderous Ares and John Wick face off in a modern-art ‘mirror exhibit’ titled Reflections of the Soul. It’s like watching the last sequence of Enter the Dragon on drugs – and that knife through the hand and into her heart…ouch. I can feel that while I type.

Who let the dogs out?

John Wick


From: John Wick 3: Parabellum (2019) 

Technically not a John Wick kill, but come on. This started when John Wick’s dog  was killed…so it’s high time dogs get their revenge too. I bet that high jump from Sofia’s (Halle Berry) back onto the roof would ‘kill it’ at a dog show.

Guns have feelings too, you just can’t throw them away 

John WickFrom: John Wick 2 (2017) 

For someone who shares such an intimate bond with assault weaponry, John Wick sure doesn’t think twice before tossing them, and scoring a superb kill later, of course.

This is the end of the line

John WickFrom: John Wick 2 (2017) 

Remember the viral video of Keanu Reeves offering his seat on the New York Metro to a woman? Well, John Wick carries forward this niceness to reel life. After a grueling fight with fellow assassin Cassian, John displays professional courtesy – leaving a knife in Cassian’s aorta that will keep him alive, as long as he doesn’t move.
