It all started with a dog. A dog that was slain by someone attacking John Wick (Keanu Reeves) and his home. Now, we’re three films into the John Wick franchise and it only keeps getting better.
John Wick 3: Parabellum continues moments after John Wick Chapter Two ends. John has been excommunicated from the assassin community he was a part of. He’s had a huge bounty placed on his head. And he has nowhere to go.

With John Wick: Chapter 3 releasing on May 17th, 2019, I thought it would be fun to do a throwback Reel Leadership article for the previous John Wick movie titles. Previously, I shared the leadership lessons from John Wick 1. Today, I want to share the leadership lessons found in John Wick: Chapter 2.
Keanu Reeves returns as the retired assassin John Wick. He’s thrust back into the tasks he’d left behind after he found love. Because of his actions in the first John Wick movie, John has to take on a task that drags him back into the abyss.

Keanu Reeves stars as legendary assassin John Wick in this great action film from 2014. With John Wick: Chapter 3 releasing in May, I thought this would be a perfect time for a Reel Leadership article about John Wick.
Having retired from his profession, John Wick is drawn back into the world of assassins when his wife passes away and his dog is brutally murdered by a Russian thug. From there, John’s world goes from normal to deadly.
John Wick is packed with action. It’s an action movie for guys who like to see the bad guys punished. John Wick dispenses his own brand of justice on the lowlifes who took away what was precious to him.
