The world’s greatest assassin is back, and the body count (if it’s even possible) is higher. By a metric ton. And at a whopping 169 minutes, ‘Chapter 4’ is also the longest. Sure, the fighting/killing scenes tend to get a little monotonous the closer we get to the three-hour mark, but Keanu Reeves’ charisma, coupled with cinematographer Dan Laustsen’s eye for making the gory look gorgeous, makes the fourth installment (and possibly last?) a blood-soaked joyride, right in line with the three that came before.

4/5 stars
