Within the new movie, John Wick is basically a superhero. Because of his magical bulletproof go well with, the person can face up to something, merely lifting the go well with above his head to keep away from headshots. He may survive being shot and thrown off buildings a number of occasions, however there’s one factor he appears very weak to — transferring autos.
Certainly, throughout the spectacular Arc de Triomphe scene with the implausible automotive stunts, Keanu Reeves’ John Wick will get run over extra typically than a personality in a cartoon, principally simply bouncing from windshield to windshield, all and not using a scratch.
Granted, it helps that the stunt workforce is among the finest on the earth they usually make the stunts look nice. When /Movie talked to guide stunt coordinators, Scott Rogers and Stephen Dunlevy, Rogers revealed the key to getting hit by a automotive repeatedly. “We will put padding on automobiles, we will put padding on the bottom, and that may shield your mind, however you’ll be able to nonetheless ding your shoulder.”
Now, that does not imply you’ll be able to stroll away from being hit by a automotive and not using a scratch. The entire thing relies on correct blocking and hitting your marks since you are nonetheless getting hit by a automotive, foolish.
Is Keanu proper? Did they overdo it with the automotive stunts? That is dependent upon what you search for in an motion movie. If you would like one thing grounded and that follows actual physics, then certain, it was a bit a lot. Should you do not thoughts a little bit of “Looney Tunes” logic, then no — if something they wanted just a few extra automotive crashes!
