An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him.
The alcohol John drinks throughout the film is Blanton's bourbon.
People don't change. You know that. Times, they do.
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.
