Keanu Reeves’ “John Wick” movies are violent, stylish affairs with lots of guns, bullets and action. YouTube channel Corridor Digital filmed a gentler version of the story by substituting foam bullet-blasting Nerf guns for the metal-slinging firearms in the movies.
Corridor’s version, posted Sunday, moves with the same frenetic action as its source material. There’s a contract out on Wick’s head and he has to avoid a barrage of would-be “killers” armed with every kind of Nerf gun imaginable. It would be utterly brutal if the projectiles weren’t all made from soft foam.
Slick choreography, pumping music, a deadpan delivery and well-timed fight scenes make this milder version of “John Wick” a lot of fun to watch.
