Back in the day we saw Rambo, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers as the record holders for on-screen kills in a movie or movie series.
Now we have a new contender. The boogeyman himself, John Wick.
Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting, here is a list of confirmed on-screen kills by John Wick, separated by each of the three films.
John Wick – 84
John Wick: Chapter 2 – 128
John Wick: Chapter 3 – 94
The first time I was taken back by the amount of individual kills on-screen was when I was a kid watching Rambo II.
I made me start asking…how many people did John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) in his anti-war, anti-government killing rage actually take down?
Now we enter THE BATTLE OF THE JOHNS!
Seeing that John Wick is heading into its 4th confirmed movie, we’ll look at Rambo’s first 4 films.
Rambo started off pretty light. The first movie, Rambo: First Blood was more of a retrospective on the affects of war and the treatment of soldiers post Vietnam. Following First Blood, we start seeing some major changes in the tone and kills of each movie.
Here’s a great graphic that shows the kill progression between the Rambo movies.
Here’s a simple kill count write out off the graphic:
Rambo I – 1
Rambo II – 69
Rambo III – 132
Rambo IV – 236
John Wick: Chapter 4 has to achieve a kill Count of 133 to surpass Rambo’s 4 film tally.
In short, you have to pump those numbers up Mr. Wick!
He’ll definitely have a chance to in John Wick: Chapter 4 to win.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to hit theaters on May 21, 2021.
