Just came back from John Wick 3. The fights are more ambitious, and I think that the flaws show largely because of that expanded ambition. There were three or four setpieces that were every bit as good as the fights in the original - the rest is relatively lackluster, but a lot of it was pretty fresh and innovative nonetheless. I actually liked it more than John Wick 2 - I appreciate that the directors went to such lengths to try out new ideas. The humor was better paced and there's more of that visceral energy that made the original so interesting. With the original at a benchmark of 10 I'd give the sequel maybe a 8 and this one a 8.5.
