In John Wick, Chapter 2, after the climactic fight, Wick checks Ares' empty gun and reloads it using her own ammo. She could have done so and shot him instead of engaging in a knife fight.

Was picking a knife the smartest choice? Does it say something about Ares' character (honour code, seeking Wick's respect)?

    Maybe she realized that thus far guns appear to have no effect on John and his amazing abilities, tactical suit, and stealth. But he does have this strong desire to "end" things. Drawing a knife may have been necessary to lure him in where she thought she had the advantage. Speculation of course. Could just have been an excuse to draw out an already preposterous fight scene – Kai Qing Sep 11 '18 at 21:20
