#127 – John Wick: Chapter 2 and The Importance of Purpose

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:

They say that action films are just fodder for shoveling popcorn but you should know by now that we don’t buy it. We talk about the new kid on the block when it comes to action, John Wick. Why are people elevating these movies about a revenge-seeking hitman so highly? Isn’t it just mindless entertainment? What sets it apart from other action/thriller franchises? We talk about all that while also taking time to appreciate the art of the action film.
