In the final few minutes of the John Wick: Chapter 2, we see Winston declaring the bounty on John’s life getting international and we see the messages hitting on the mobile phones of pretty much everyone in the park where the discussion happened, as also explained in this related question.

But seeing this made me generally wonder, aren’t there any civilians in the world of John Wick? I see either people being members of The Continental or gun-for-hire independent assassins. Is this how the creators envisioned the world of John?

Also you could see in all the stunts and chase scenes, when John walks around injured (in most cases with blood around) and carrying guns, the people nearby hardly react to the tension of it. So what’s the general mentality of the people in that world?

    I think there are (especially when he was in Rome during that party) Are you referring to that scene in the train station? Not sure if I remember correctly but weren't they using silenced guns during that? So it would be quite hard to hear, especially on a noisy train station... – I. Am May 21 at 14:25
  • @I.Am : My question is not related as to why the people are there in the park, but why don’t people react during the other violent scenes and how come everyone get the alert via phone when he runs of in the final scene ? – Inian May 21 at 14:30
  • @Paulie_D: My question is not that, but more about general mentality of the people in the world. Kindly reopen it – Inian May 21 at 14:33
  • Then you need to refactor the question and the title. – Paulie_D May 21 at 14:33

    Side note - A silencer doesn't silence much. It reduces the absolutely ear piercing loudness of a normal gun down to about the sound of a heavy industrial nail gun. The difference is humongous and a suppressor would bring the sound down enough where ear plugs are optional, but in no way would people fail to notice this unless John and all other assassins were shooting subsonic .22, which they are not. – Kai Qing May 21 at 18:30
