The poster states it well , from the minute we are introduced to John he is already in bad shape but find out in the first few minutes of the film that he has lost his wife to an undisclosed disease.
As a dying wish she sends him a puppy with a card telling him that she does not want him to grieve alone.
A few men he met while putting gas in his car-a mustang, they ask how much the car is -he politely tells them it is not for sale.
They break in one night and help themselves to his car in the process they kill his dog and with that they have pissed him off.This was all he had of his late wife.
Everything about this film works on so many different levels strong fast action , slick fighting, exceptional editing. The stunts and fighting scenes are done by Keanu Reeves and he has been exciting to watch of late,
This is a tough film but delivers the goods like not many have been able to do of late. In the Behind the Scenes of the film they show that he had trained for this part months before filming was ever to take place, hard to find that kind of commitment from an actor these days.
