John Wick

Revealing mistake: When Viggo pushes the car off the edge and it hits the ground, as it rolls you can see that the engine/transmission, drive shift and tank have been removed. (01:26:00)

New this month Continuity mistake: In the night club, when John is fighting the last guy before leaving, the guy throws John, he lands on his back, and has no gun/holster in his waist band on his back. A few seconds later a small pistol and holder appears and he takes it out and shoots at the other guy.

Other mistake: When John is talking to the club bouncer, John says that he lost weight, to which he replies (in Russian) "Twenty kilograms." The translation says "over sixty pounds," but 20 kilograms is just over 44 pounds.

Trivia: Chad Stahelski has revealed that he and Reeves have a host of ideas for future instalments in the series, and are happy to keep making future films as long as the audience demand is there. "I enjoy making these movies because there's no limit, " said Stahelski. "We create our own mythology, and we have a studio that both stays out of our way and supports us on the wacky decisions. If people go see the movie, and it makes money, and they came back to us, Keanu and I have ideas for days." https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2018/12/chad-stahelski-and-keanu-reeves-have-plenty-of-ideas-for-more-john-wick-movies/.

Viggo Tarasov: I heard you struck my son.
Aureilo: Yes, sir, I did.
Viggo Tarasov: And may I ask why?
Aureilo: Yeah, well, because he stole John Wick's car, sir, and, uh, killed his dog.
Viggo Tarasov: Oh.

Viggo Tarasov: John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He's the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman.

John Wick: People keep asking if I'm back and I haven't really had an answer, but yeah, I'm thinking I'm back.

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)?

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

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.
