Cineworld tickets for John Wick: Chapter 4 are now on sale. And if you needed more incentive to book your seat straight away, the first critical reactions to the movie might do the trick.
Reviewers are raving about the John Wick fourquel, praising Keanu Reeves' commitment and the jaw-dropping nature of the action sequences. The movie is spearheaded by stuntman-turned-filmmaker Chad Stahelski who has helmed the previous Wick movies.
However, it sounds like he has upped his game with the latest instalment, which spans the globe as Reeves' assassin hunts down his former associates at the High Table. It's an excuse for more wince-inducing yet gorgeously designed beatdowns that draw in many international superstars including martial arts legend Donnie Yen.
Here's a sampling of the early critical reactions – might we be looking at an action masterpiece in the making? It certainly sounds like it.

#JohnWick4 is, at least from a technical pov, one of the greatest Hollywood action movies ever made. It's visually gorgeous w/ stunningly complicated & creative setpieces. I honestly don't know how they safely did some of these scenes. It's a towering artistic achievement. pic.twitter.com/LljisftZBp— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) March 6, 2023
#JohnWick4 is a bloody good time. Great action and fight sequences. Donnie Yen is an INCREDIBLE addition to the franchise. He's a highlight of the film. Lots of surprises in this one that's going to deliver a divisive ending. See this one in IMAX. pic.twitter.com/MMCW54KydQ— Kirsten (@KirstenAcuna) March 6, 2023
#JohnWick4's Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Rina Sawayama are all scene stealers. Each has so much style, charisma, and talent on display to enrich the film as a whole.— The Brandalorian (@BrandonDavisBD) March 6, 2023
Chad Stahelski also upped his game and droped one of my favorite action scenes, ever. You'll know it. pic.twitter.com/Id4IvUZBfJ
#JohnWick4 continues with the visceral and brutal action. We finally get the conclusion to the story, and the film brings the action to a higher level with armored ninja, fiery weapons, epic one-shot scenes, and more. Donnie Yen is definitely icing on the cake. pic.twitter.com/7N0utxj772— John Nguyen (@JohnSpartan300) March 6, 2023
#JohnWick4 is action cinema at its finest. This breathtaking, bloody and ballistic ballet delivers a bone-crunching crescendo to one of the greatest action franchises of all time. Pure power, #JohnWick4 is as exhilarating as it is exhausting. Reeves' Wick transcends icon status. pic.twitter.com/1tn6syfz6E— Simon Thompson (@ShowbizSimon) March 6, 2023
I had reservations about John Wick: Chapter 4's nearly three hour runtime, but the movie earns it. It's an epic with smart pacing that never lets the action feel exhausting, and the set pieces are phenomenal. Great cast of series newcomers, but Donnie Yen is the MVP. #JohnWick4 pic.twitter.com/xyMbLXmXUM— Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) March 6, 2023
