    In this movie, you can see that John Wick lost his wife named Helen. She died because of a certain illness that we don’t even know the name of. Her passing was quite sad because she left a puppy named Daisy for John so that he can learn how to love again.

    Sadly, Daisy was murdered by three gang members led by Iosef. The gang member wants to buy John’s car, a vintage Ford Mustang, but he refuses and it makes them angry. It makes them follow him home to steal the car as well as kill Daisy in the process.

    This movie will invite you to join John to find the gang members while wearing his signature suit.

    In this movie, John knows that his Mustang is in Abram Tarasov’s possession, to be exact it is in his workshop. Abram himself is Viggo’s brother and it is natural to call him Iosef’s uncle. His workshop specializes in breaking down old cars and selling the parts individually. 

    The Mustang was in bad shape so he asked Aurelio to repair his car. After it is done, he keeps his weapon again in his home and never returns to his old job. However, Santino D’Antonio disturbs his retirement by asking him to be at his service.

    At first, he refuses,but he doesn’t have lots of options because he needs to follow his demand so that he won’t violate the underworld rules. In this movie, you will see how John works to kill Santino’s sister so that he can replace her position.

    In this movie, John is found to be the killer of Santino and he becomes the target with a $14 million bounty. He was running around New York, which is known as a safe ground. He was badly injured but he cannot continue his treatment because of the bounty placed against him. 

    Because of the news, he became one of the most wanted people, especially among the gangs of assassins. More and more assassins want to kill him because of his deed in the past as a form of revenge and it is also expected to be shown in the next John Wick 4 movie.
