There’s lots of firepower, gun fu, and 1980’s Dolly Parton music in this pretty seamless effort showcasing some of John Wick’s greatest hits.
Drawn from across the Wick film franchise, the clip includes some great hardware, reloads, double and triple taps set to Parton’s song that hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Chart back in January 1981.
As such, the song predates the acting career of Keanu Reeves — who portrays the fictional contract killer with retirement issues — who was still a couple of years off from his early roles in Coca-Cola commercials. Still, Reeves has put in lots of lead equity to make his Wick role semi-believable on-screen.
Then of course there is the Deadpool 9 to 5 version– and the song, used in a similar film mashup, made it to the official soundtrack of the Marvel release.
