John Wick: Chapter 4 had its world premiere on Monday night, and as a result, the largely rapturous first reactions to the film have begun to hit the internet.

According to critics, not only is John Wick: Chapter 4 perhaps the best film in the franchise but it’s also one of the greatest action movies ever made, period.

Despite its nearly three-hour-long runtime, the film is apparently perfectly paced:

According to people who have seen the film, the film also includes a post-credit scene for the first time in the history of the franchise.

Here is the official synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 4, via Lionsgate:

​​John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uncovers a path to defeating the High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe and forces that turn old friends into foes.

In addition to Reeves, John Wick: Chapter 4 stars Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane.
