DESCRIPTION: Fight scenes. One liners. Keanu. That's what you'll find in John Wick. John (Keanu Reeves) retires from the hard-hitting life of an assassin after his wife dies, leaving behind, you guessed it, a puppy. Then an incident with some thugs forces him back in the killing game. He does all this in killer leather jackets & suits. Spoiler: they don't get wrinkled. When John Wick finds himself pulled back into the hard-hitting life of an assassin after his wife dies, he dodges bullets in the New York Life Building in New York City. Designed by Cass Gilbert in 1926, the building is an iconic structure of New York with its Italianate Renaissance Revival style. Today it serves as the headquarters of the New York Life Insurance Company and occasional assassin ass-kicking. Scroll down to see more film locations identifed from John Wick.
