Hard to say. As a movie soundtrack, no; I'm a traditionalist that way. ;) But for the movie, it was perfect.

Thanks, Anakin! Do you remember the "soundtrack" for Speed? a bunch of songs, some of them good songs, but that ain't a soundtrack! Varese Sarabande is a soundtrack!

I get what you're saying about film scores, but if a film is "modern" I do like it to have that flavor.

John Wick is for me a movie where everything fits exactly what it should be - the sound, the look, the colors, the cinematography - all are just right. A lot of films by a lot of very famous, established directors don't have that. Kudos to Chad and Dave!

I love the Speed main theme. :D I can't remember the actual songs.

Yep. It was a very, very well put-together film. Very sleek, everything falling right in its place. There was a musicality to it.

Indeed, very rhythmic, almost symphonic if you want to go there.

BEST REVENGE MOVIE: John Wick - he avenges his dog! Sure, the dog is a merely symbol of his wife’s love, but so what? Speaking of which…

COMEBACK OF THE YEAR: Keanu Reeves in John Wick.

That he can tug on my heartstrings just by appearing at a premiere is equal parts inexplicable and true.

In an exclusive clip gifted to Yahoo! Movies, Reeves discussed some of the difficulties filming many of the elaborate fight sequences sprinkled throughout John Wick. According to the Matrix alum, that included battling his co-stars in the freezing cold.
"We shot [one sequence] in the rain in winter on this great location. It was a good kind of hard. It was physically taxing, but the sequence itself was so cool, you know?"

During his chat with Indiewire last year, the actor explained why he feels John Wick is a lot different from the other American action flicks making the rounds these days. In his humble opinion, it all comes down to execution.
"It's the world they've created and the vision of the story. The shooting style: the colors, the way they shoot the action. They're doing wide shots, not a lot of cuts. They're wanting the action to unfold in front of you as opposed to changing perspectives. That feels different - it's a little more intimate and objective. It's not just visceral action. You can believe what you're seeing and it's not just sound and fury. You can see the fluidity and what they're doing - like that one hall shot where they're wrestling, and he just comes through and pounds a knife into the other guy's chest. There's no cut."

John Wick hits DVD and Blu-ray on February 3. Action aficionados who are ready to watch it now can pick up a digital copy of the flick on VOD.

Having in mind that the most popular films are science-fiction and fantasy John Wick which is a different genre was very good.

4. JOHN WICK (2014). This is the only movie in the group that features a non-amateur as the revenge-taker. And, oh baby, what a "non-amateur" he is. Keanu Reeves plays John Wick, an ex-intel agent of the highest and most accomplished order, a veritable one-man wrecking crew, universally regarded as being so dangerous and efficient, the vile people whom he is chasing have no choice but to remain in a scared-shitless state of terror until he kills them all. Reeves has never been better. A resounding thumbs-up.

since the simple DVD apparently doesn't have this feature (only the Blu-Ray version does) I'll have to settle for this article..

In one of the interviews Keanu said that he was not going to a gym very often however to prepare for a role of John Wick he had a professional personal training.
