It's to show that she still despises him. And doesn't wish him well on his journey and that he will have to drink her spit to survive. She is spitting in his face. And he has no other choice than to take it.

The BBFC's website contains the following guidelines for 15-rated films: Violence Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic violence is also unlikely to be acceptable. In other words, "strong gory images" or "strong sadistic violence" are ...

I suspect it's combination of two things Older tech is harder to track/copy/leak, so helps keep the information away from law enforcement (not that I really recall seeing any in the movies, other than the guy that visited John's house in the first movie) An aesthetic choice by the director/writer, it gives the world a unique look and style.

I thought the same thing when he fired 6 shotgun slug rounds into the guy rolling down the scaffolding. John seems to be of the belief that finishing someone off always involves at least one in the head or an equivalent finishing tap. But even as far back as the first one, he is known to put more than one in heads if he feels it is necessary. About all we ...

In universe... It is somewhat strange, but throughout all 3 films, he only grabs and keeps dropped weapons during a single battle, in the chase after Santonio in the Art Gallery (and even then drops them when no longer needed), and that is probably because he only had 7 bullets for his own weapon Picking up a random weapon might be a bad idea for several ...

There's no specific reason given in the film, so this is how I understood it. It's clear that the assassins appear to be enjoying their fight with John, and there are definitely a couple of points where they could have killed him, but don't do so. Their boss is a huge fan of John's work/skills, and he wanted the honour of fighting (and killing) John ...

Realistically it comes down to revenge and self preservation Revenge Would you shake hands with Bob after he sold a weapon to Murderous Ted, after Ted specially said he was going to kill your best friend and Bob gave it to him anyway knowing that Ted was capable of killing your best friend? If you answer yes it is not even slightly Bob's fault in your ...

To kill Winston is to prove to the Elder that John Wick is serious on "amending" his sin. It's not indicated in the movie if the Elder knows that John Wick regards Winston as his friend but do take note about the scene which I will quote Winston: "I would rather die from a friend" The point is, John Wick has to lose someone equally valuable and important ...

The Adjudicator works for the High Table, which in turn works for the Elder (the "one above the table" referred to in the film). The point of John's trip to get to the Elder is to hope that the Elder will overrule his excommunicado status. Instead he finds himself with the choice that he can be killed, or take the job on of killing Winston, after which his ...

He didn't kill Winston, so officially he's still excommunicado, although given that The High Table may well believe he is dead and pursue him no further. This of course leaves a nice opening for John Wick 4.

The movie's director Chad Stahelski gave an interview answering basically all of your questions: The stuntmen are equipped with protective gear to not get (severely) hurt by the dog bites. The only bit of CGI used is that targets for the dogs ("green fluffy toy[s]") which were affixed to the bad guys were removed in post production. From the above link, ...

Certification in UK is lowering constantly. Terminator 2 originally came out with a 15 certificate with cuts and in 2001 it got a 15 certificate without cuts. All of the Alien movies used to be 18 and then their extended/director's cut versions dropped to 15. John Wick Chapter 2 voluntarily cut 23 seconds showing bloody injury detail in a suicide scene to ...

With the exception of his explicit target, John Wick has typically avoided killing in cold blood. Everyone that John kills was also trying to kill him. Though he stops if he is capable of incapacitating them in some other way. For example, in John Wick 2, he stabs Cassian in the heart but (seemingly) in a non-fatal way. He leaves Cassian alive "as a ...

The elder asks John to kill Winston to prove his loyalty and fealty to the high table (and the elder himself), but makes it clear that until John does this to prove his loyalty, He is still excommunicado. The mercenaries and assassins would have left John alone once Winston was killed, as John would no longer be excommunicated. However, until that time, John ...

We don't see him sleep either (I don't remember if in the beginning of Chapter two he was sleeping or was just preparing to go to bed). But we assume he slept (and eaten) during those travels. Chapter two continuity beginning suggest that John stored the dog somewhere while he went to Russians to get the car back. So it was one day/night event ending in the ...

In your first scene, you actually said the key point on why John Wick has the luxury to waste bullets, its because there are plenty of bullets! The second one is based on my opinion, but I think John Wick is frustrated on fighting these guys because of their armor. First, he brought a hand gun and what I think is a MK7 Mutant. Do take note that his handgun ...

This part is listed as a continuity goof in IMDb: At the end of John Wick 2 when Winston gives the excomunicado order its 4 pm on his watch and he says John Wick has 1 hour.But in Part 3 he becomes excomunicado effective 6 pm which should have been 5 pm according to the ending in Part 2 and there is this video about some errors in John Wick, the error ...

To save & keep the Continental Winston makes it very clear that he effectively betrays John Wick because the High Table will otherwise kill him. He makes the deal to keep the Continental and run it as he wishes. CinemaBlend However, regarding that latter one and the following battle at the Continental, Winston declared that this had all been a show ...

About his character Zero, Dacascos told Inverse: He feels like John’s brother from a different mother. That’s him! It’s not meant to be funny. It’s very sincere. About working with Reeves and Stahelski, he told Vulture: Chad yells, “Cut!” Then Keanu starts laughing and drops some F-bombs, and says, “That’s too funny. We can’t do that, right?” ...

When the Bowery King says they will honor the excommunicado he is saying that they agree to adhere to the terms, much like when someone agrees to honor the terms of a contract. In the case of the excommunicado it means they agree to supply no assistance to John Wick.

She's referring to hierarchy. If John survive they both will be punished by the High Table. This is repercission from above. The one from below would be that night visit. Adjudicator is very classist. She acknowledge he is an exceptional assassin but he is, to her, still someone less than her. And failing to kill John might send a message to every other ...

They're almost certainly informed of it. We've seen that there's a system in place to communicate information such as new bounties, assassins being declared excommunicado, the details of a bounty being modified, etc. to all members within a geographical area via phone number. Given that information such as the NYC Continental being deconsecrated would be ...
