There’s no sight sadder on the silver screen than a dog dying. Kill men and their muse and we the viewers can deal with that but you hurt the dog, you jangle all our nerves! We don’t like to see dogs die, period. Not even in fictional realms. The coolest action flick of 2014 John Wick reaffirms this fact. Here’s John Wick review from the dog.
The plot follows a linear revenge trajectory – Keanu Reeves plays John Wick, a grieving widower and ex-hit man who finds comfort in a Beagle pup Daisy, his late wife’s gift to him. The solace is short lived when a gang of thugs makes the worst mistake of their lives – killing Daisy.
A 50 year old Keanu Reeves (still looking a decade younger) reboots himself in the action genre in dapper black; Neo revisited mode. Alfie Allen reprises his act of a cocky rogue quite like his Theon Greyjoy (Game of Thrones). Only this time the winter indeed comes early on him. Throw in stellar cameos from the likes of Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki and you get the perfect cocktail. The directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski have a stunts background and they have stamped their mark in almost every frame with an action choreography that takes on MMA, Max Payne and Matrix moves. With neon lit clubs, mafia hotels and a code of the assassins, the screenplay shows New York in an alternate universe. What works for John Wick is that it sets it’s ambitions right, far from the best movie of the year but close to the most stylish take on the action genre that you would see on celluloid.
The crackers emit the worst kind of gases and increase air pollution by 30 per cent. The toxic air is not only dangerous for those suffering from pulmonary diseases, but it also causes breathing problems in others.
40 per cent of those who suffer injuries during Diwali are children below the age of 14, and it is mostly boys in the age group of 10 to 14.
To help drive the message – Say no to crackers, here are some of my canine friends lending their voice of support:
