John Wick

Question: Why accept Viggo's contract if he was just going to help John anyway?

Chosen answer: Marcus may have had a change of heart after the fact; but it's more likely that, knowing John Wick's fearsome capabilities, Marcus believed John Wick was going to slaughter every one of the Russians (including Viggo), thereby erasing every reason for the contract. Marcus didn't want to be on the wrong side of John Wick's wrath if John actually did annihilate everyone. So, Marcus may have accepted the contract to lull Viggo into a false sense of security, thereby giving John Wick a further surprise advantage.

Question: In response to the answer for the Cardinal Rule question, wouldn't the cancellation of the contract by Viggo due to John's threat void that agreement (Marcus' acceptance of the contract)?

Chosen answer: No. Regardless of any cancellation that Viggo made after-the-fact, the "Cardinal Rule" still applies to Marcus. He accepted the contract, he was contractually-obligated to kill John Wick, and he failed to kill John Wick. Marcus broke his word, essentially, which was an inexcusable violation.

Question: In the hotel fight scene with Ms. Perkins, she takes what I think is the bottom end of her jacket and bites down on it. Any idea why? Just curious.

Chosen answer: She is setting up the choke move she uses on Wick seconds later. She places the strap to her jacket in her mouth so she can reach it when she spins around. She then wraps it around Wick's neck and tries to strangle him with the strap.

Question: What exactly is the "Cardinal Rule" that Marcus broke that got him killed by Viggo?

Chosen answer: Viggo put out a contract on John Wick (meaning Viggo offered a large bounty for somebody to kill John Wick). Marcus accepted the contract. The "Cardinal Rule" was that, if you accept the contract, you must kill your target. No ifs, ands, or buts. Marcus broke that Cardinal Rule because he did not kill John Wick when he had the chance.

Question: Who owned the Continental Hotel? Was is Winston or did he just run it for the owner?

Gary Stewart

Chosen answer: It was Winston. The guy John met up with in the basement of the hotel who gave John all the information he needed when he was trying to kill Iosef and Viggo.

Question: How any people does John Wick kill?

Chosen answer: My internet searching yielded the most common answer of 76 killings by Keanu Reeves' eponymous character, in addition to 8 killings by others, and the death of one dog. One writer suggested John Wick killed 78, but that was an outlier.

Michael Albert

Question: When in the movie did it mention that Viggo's henchman was "Kirill?" Because his name is given on Wikipedia but never mentioned.

Chosen answer: His name is never mentioned on screen but it is listed in the credits.
