The manner in which John Wick shook up the action movie business.

John Wick has undeniably left an indelible mark on action cinema, redefining the genre with its innovative approach to choreography, storytelling, and world-building. One of the key elements of its impact lies in its commitment to practical effects and authentic combat techniques.  

Rather than relying heavily on CGI, John Wick emphasizes real stunts and martial arts, creating a visceral and immersive experience for viewers. 

John Wick's world-building is intricate and immersive, offering glimpses into a rich and mysterious underworld populated by assassins, crime syndicates, and secret societies. 

This world-building extends beyond the narrative, with each film expanding upon the lore and mythology of the John Wick universe. 

Additionally, the success of John Wick has inspired a resurgence of interest in action films that prioritize character development and storytelling alongside adrenaline-pumping action sequences.  

Its influence can be seen in other recent action franchises, which have adopted similar stylistic elements and storytelling techniques. 

In an era that is dominated by high-budget blockbusters, the success of John Wick has also made it possible for other action films with a budget of roughly ten million dollars to flourish.   

Its blend of inventive action sequences, compelling characters, and stylish cinematography has resonated with audiences and critics alike, solidifying its place as a modern classic in the pantheon of action cinema.
