Inspiration for John Wick 4

Recommended Posts


Our own Vanessa Armstrong talked to "John Wick: Chapter 4" director Chad Stahelski about the making of this sequence, and he does not hide the fact that he was very much influenced by video games in crafting it. "I had seen this video game and I'll throw a shout-out," he said. "I think it was called 'Hong Kong Massacre' — they did this top shot and we had been doing so much with the big muzzle flashes and it just kind of clicked."

I finished John Wick 4 a couple of days ago and came across this article. Hope this draws some attention to this fun and under appreciated game!

TL;DR: If you're buying one twin stick shooter game that's not Hotline Miami, buy Ruiner instead. 


Longer: It's Hotline Miami with worse controls, a different coat of paint, blurry visuals, barebones story, and a challenging trophy list (day five's medals). 


I hope Vreski succeeds. The proof of concept they showed for their next game looks cool but I'll need a more polished and complete package to buy their next game.
