Favorite kill in the John Wick franchise?

Iíve been doing the first 3 btbtb in prep for the physical release. So Iím watching all them and while most kills are forgettable, but still awesome, after seeing 3 I wondered what the best or your favorite kill in the franchise is.

For me: I always cringe at the knife through the eyeball in the museum in part 3. When Wick is fighting the yakuza. Itís so cringe inducing and oh so awesome.

Also, love in the same film, when he manipulated the horses to kick the henchmen to death. It looked so violent.

Of course, as for an entire sequence, hands down the top down perspective in part 4.

The dude getting kicked back fifty feet by the horse looked painful.

It so hard to pin point just one but in the 4th movie the whole German night club scene where John kills Killa (Scott Atkins) underneath that waterfall is at the top for me.

Although itís my least favorite of the four films, Part 3: Parabellum has my favorite action scene in the series: when John is in the museum and is forced to use nothing but antique knives and old, rusty Civil-War era weapons against his enemies.

The one where the boxer beats the hell out of John on an NYC rooftop until he punches himself out and then John just uppercuts him once and his head comes clean off the top of his body and flies into a nearby dumpster.

^ I think you’re talking about Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan. While a cross-over is inevitable, just can’t count this one. Sorry HM.

I mean, that really seems like a no-brainer. Shoot someone to make a bullet hole, then jam the barrel of the gun up it to make a gun hole. This isn't rocket science, people.

Ideally, itíll be a situation where John needs to be stealthy. Heíll then use thatís dudeís body as a silencer as he takes down a room full of bad guys.

I couldn't tell you which film but I'm fairly certain he did... at least once.

As he's out of bullets, Wick takes off the slide off the gun and uses the frame to stab an opponent multiple times.

Actually,
Spoiler:
Itís in JW4. Near the end when theyíre fighting their way up the outside staircase to get to the duel, John does it to one of the many faceless henchmen.
