We are accustomed to the fact that, day in and day out, some of the great filmmakers in the film industry take advantage of the loudspeaker provided by a microphone to attack superhero movies with the most diverse arguments. But today, for a change, a legendary filmmaker such as Oliver Stone has not decided to beat up Marvel or DCbut to our beloved saga ‘John Wick’.
Stone has not hesitated to describe the extraordinary ‘John Wick 4’ starring Keanu Reeves as “disgusting”, hiding behind a somewhat absurd premise: the film directed by Chad Stahelski is not realistic enough. Attention, because his words for Variety are priceless.
“I saw John Wick 4 on the plane. I think the movie is unbelievably disgusting. Disgusting. I don’t know what people think. I may have watched GI Joe as a kid. But [Keanu Reeves] kill how many, three or four hundred people in the fucking movie? As a war veteran, I have to tell you that none of the deaths are credible. I know it’s a movie, but it’s become more of a video game than a movie. It has strayed from reality.”
The director, whose last premiere was the documentary ‘Nuclear’, in which he defends the idea that the energy that appears in the title could be the solution to climate change, has continued his reflection by saying that there are no differences between the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies and the rest of their peers. glups.
“The public may like the video game, but I’m bored. How many cars can you crash? How many stunts can you do? What’s the difference between ‘Fast and Furious’ and any other movie? It’s just one thing after another. Whether it’s a Marvel superhero or just a human being like John Wick, it doesn’t make any difference. It’s not believable.”
