John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum

Who can defeat The Avengers? Leave it to hitman extraordinaire John Wick! The sleeper hit series has, with its third "chapter", topped Avengers from their spot atop the box office charts.

Or does new partner Halle Berry "Jinx" the whole affair?  Arnie, Justin, and Jakob have served, and will serve, so join them with this review of Parabellum.
