An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him.
Holy shit! Jonathan!
John Wick: Hey, Addy.
Addy: My God! How long has it been? Four years?
John Wick: Five and change.
Addy: So tell me, how was life on the other side?
John Wick: It was good, Addy. Far better than I deserved.
The tattoo across John Wick's shoulders reads "Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat," which literally means "(the) strong (ones), Fortune helps", or "fortune favors the bold". This is a quote from a play by Terence, written in 161 BCE. It is often misquoted in English texts as "fortes Fortuna adiuvat", which uses the accusative plural ending -es instead of the "Republican" accusative ending -is, making some believe that the quote is misspelled. Apparently John knows a thing or two about antique playwrights.
