John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum just hit theaters, and the early reactions are already overwhelmingly positive, indicating that Keanu Reeves and crew turned everything to 11 and beyond. While the much-talked about horse moment almost didn't happen, fans have let it be known that the sequence, and the movie itself, does justice to the prior entries in the franchise.
The action series began in 2014 and went on to become a sleeper hit. The sequel drew an even bigger audience, keeping the momentum going for huge hype going into Chapter 3. As expected, the certified fresh film has inspired many to sing its praises on Twitter. Fans are already calling it the the best of the three so far.

Critics already debuted their reviews earlier this week, sharing their thoughts following the New York premiere. A good portion of the acclaim focused on Keanu Reeves, who is somehow 54 years old despite never aging. The actor also appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week to help promote the movie, and it's clear he's very excited for fans to see it. "It's John Wick, baby," he said after explaining the logistics of filming an intense chase scene with a horse.
