"John Wick" movie quotes bring the action when one ex-hitman returns to the game to find vengeance for his murdered dog. The thriller was written by Derek Kolstad and directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski in their directorial debut. "John Wick" opened in theaters on October 24, 2014.

In "John Wick," the title character (Keanu Reeves) is a former hitman who left the profession to live a quiet life after the death of his wife. One day, however, he comes across bad guy Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) who is quite interested in his classic car. When John isn't willing to sell it to Iosef, Iosef and his crew of thugs show up at John's place one night to steal the car and also kill his beloved dog in the process.

This chain of events sets John on a mission for vengeance which means he needs to return to his former lifestyle and go after Iosef. At first, Iosef doesn't know what he's done but with a little advice from Viggo (Michael Nyqvist), he knows the battle that is coming to him. Willem Dafoe, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan and John Leguizamo, among others, co-star in the action film.

"John Wick" joins the fall 2014 movie season which already includes great other films including "Fury," "The Best of Me," "The Book of Life," "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)," "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "St. Vincent," "Gone Girl," "Men, Women & Children," "Left Behind," "The Equalizer," "Pride," "Good People," "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."
