Last week the fourth installment of the John Wick saga was released, a film starring the mega star of Hollywood and the Internet Keanu Reeves and that among its cast includes the participation of the Chilean Marko Zaror. Film that has started on the right foot since the press considers it the best film in the saga and one of the best action films in history, also being a worldwide box office success since its premiere on Thursday, March 23.
This since as most of their reviews have indicated, John Wick 4 impresses by delivering its intense action, seeking to innovate in the way in which these scenes are filmed, one of them in particular being the one that has stood out among the audience, since It looks like it’s out of a video game. Something that has been confirmed by the director of the film, who indicated that although many believe that it is inspired by the game Hotline Miami, it is actually based on the game The Hong Kong Massacre.

Words from the director of John Wick 4 that we must deliver by making a great SPOILER ALERT, if you haven’t seen the movie, read on at your own risk.
According to Chad Stahelski, the genius behind the action saga: “Aerial shots have never been good for us, because with all this lighting and choreography they get old fast, but then I saw a video game, I think it was called The Hong Kong Massacre, where they used the top-down perspective. At that point I said, ‘Well, if I shoot from above, we shoot like this and we shoot like this, and the bullets draw these fantastic lines, and if I do the blinking right, it’s like we’re with a Telesketch. It looks great, and it was a different way of approaching the action and staying in that style of video game that John Wick is known for”
For those who don’t know, the game is a shooter that has a top-down perspective, which it shares with the scene of John Wick and that was released in early 2019 for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, where players embark on and a Revenge plot packed with brutal and cinematic shootings in realistic criminal world locations.
News that if you are one of those who already enjoyed the great John Wick 4 and you are also a fan of video games, it will surely surprise you and create some expectation waiting for the live-action movie based on the game Ghost of Tsushima, which will be directed precisely by Stahelski.
