JOHN WICK (15) - SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM FRIDAY

Keanu Reeves reportedly puts in his best performance since The Matrix, as ex-mob hitman John Wick comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that beat him up and killed his dog – which was a gift from his dying wife.

Unfortunately the sadistic young leader of the crew – who is the son of Wick’s former employer – didn’t realise he had awoken a retired killer, who will now stop at nothing to hunt down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend.

Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki co-star in this stylish well-reviewed thriller from first-time director Chad Stahelski, which has already had a sequel green light after garnering a cult-like following in the States.
