However, despite his death shown in chapter 4, people have been making theories that the final moment is not actually his last. There have been assumptions that he could have simply passed out because of the blood loss. Similarly, there are also theories that Wick faked his death so that he could live the rest of his life in peace.

What Was The Point Of Killing John Wick In Chapter 4?

Everyone who has watched the John Wick films cannot be shocked by the character’s demise. It was inevitable that Keanu Reeves’ tenure as the adored assassin would end in this manner. After all, “actions and repercussions.” The ultimate result follows from being the greatest trader of death. Yet for two crucial factors that contributed to the uniqueness of the movie, John Wick’s demise in Chapter 4 specifically made sense.

The first is that both emotionally and narratively, it made sense. Because he was the most infamous murderer in the criminal underground, John Wick wasn’t much liked. Everyone adored him because he was a fantastic friend—the kind of person Koji, played by Hiroyuki Sanada, would risk everything for. He inspired such respect and loyalty in others. John Wick would have passed away a long time ago without such connections.
