Film On The Television (9/18/2015): John Wick on HBO2

Stinging from the epic failure of 47 Ronin, Keanu Reeves needed a comeback and fast. Luckily, he got one in John Wick, a fast-paced, excellently filmed and light on its feet action film that was one of last years most enjoyable surprises. Mixing a bombastic approach to everything from the action to even the subtitles with the emotional connection between the titular characters deceased wife and a beagle puppy and you've got yourself one helluva potent combo.

Toss in some solid supporting performances from the likes of Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki and expertly delivered world-building. and yeah, you've got yourself a great motion picture like John Wick. Curl up on the sofa tonight, order yourself a pizza and get ready to spend your Friday night with the best bad-ass around. Oh, and his beagle puppy, we mustn't forget about that adorable canine of his.

John Wick airs tonight on HBO2 at 8 PM central time.
