The remaining comments echo similar sentiments. Rama’s Screen assures that the film lives up to expectations, stating, ‘I don’t mind the lengthy runtime because the action at the Arc de Triomphe makes it all worthwhile.’ Jeff Erwing shares his enthusiasm, saying, ‘I absolutely loved it. There are scenes that leave you with your mouth open, and you’ll never look at stairs the same way again. Donnie Yen is outstanding. It’s one of the best movies of the past decade.’
Hunter Bolding also emphasizes the quality of John Wick 4 as an action movie, exclaiming, ‘It’s one of the best action movies. My jaw dropped at least six times.’ Eric Heisenberg, another reviewer, initially had reservations about the nearly three-hour runtime, but ultimately found the movie to be worth it, describing it as ‘epic’ with smart pacing that doesn’t make the action feel overwhelming.

I had reservations about John Wick: Chapter 4's nearly three hour runtime, but the movie earns it. It's an epic with smart pacing that never lets the action feel exhausting, and the set pieces are phenomenal. Great cast of series newcomers, but Donnie Yen is the MVP. #JohnWick4 pic.twitter.com/xyMbLXmXUM
