* The final confrontation the film has built up to comes to a beautiful climax: John vs Zero. At this point John is exhausted from the nearly non-stop fighting and Zero is fresh and ready to rumble. Not only is John able to match the other assassin almost blow for blow in a brutal and bloody showdown, he soon dominates by performing a StealthHiBye '''twice''' on Zero, using Zero's previous mirror trick back on him and once he gets his hands on his opponent's sword, he manages to cut him so quickly Zero does not even realize ''John sliced off all of the fingers in his left hand until the pain hits him seconds later.''

* During one of the early fights, John is up against a pair of axe-wielding assassins. In what appears to be a scene heavily influenced by Film/OldBoy, we get a ''gorgeous'' 45 second long take of John fighting them. As a meta-moment of awesome, Keanu's face is visible the entire time, leaving no doubt that all of his training and preparation for the film has paid off in spades.

** On a meta sense, these two are played by the final bosses of [[Film/TheRaid The Raid]] AND [[Film/TheRaid2Berandal its sequel]], two back to back films also with jaw-droppingly fantastic fight sequences. Just the fact that we have two people who take part in those films fighting [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]] makes this entire fight even more awesome and letting them both live at the end is the icing on the cake as a cheeky acknowledgment to how great their movies are.

** The first being with Sophia, who turns out to be a female version of John, only more lethal, as she has attack dogs who rip enemies to shreds.

* The doctor patches up John with only five minutes left before his excommunicato kicks in. He was only halfway done when the time runs out, so John finishes the rest of the surgery ''[[SelfSurgery by himself]]''. Even then, [[spoiler: the doctor helps John after the time is up by telling him what medicine to take and, knowing that the High Table will find out, he has John shoot him twice (in non-vital areas) to make it seem like John forced him to help after time was up. He takes the two bullets without screaming out in pain.]] To top it off, [[spoiler:considering the Adjudicator is never seen meeting with him, in all likelihood, the bluff worked]].

* [[spoiler: Winston seems to be entirely fine potentially ruining the credibility of the Continental when it becomes clear the High Table is going a little too far, as shown in the second trailer; he shelters John for a time, even tells him if he needs anything for a showdown. And to that, Wick says:]]

** On a meta level, this is an awesome moment for director Chad Stahelski, who has gleefully pointed out that no reviewers called him on how ridiculous it was that John wasted time building himself a new gun instead of [[StatingTheSimpleSolution just grabbing a different bullet]].

Added DiffLines:

** Using loose straps from the reins to tie a mook's neck, then taking the horse for a ride with the poor guy trailing behind.


* On a meta level, finally seeing [[Creator/MarkDacascos Marc Dacascos]] on the big screen was this for many action movie fans. Once famous in the 1990s, the man was reduced to doing only direct-to-video films, yet in this movie he almost steals the show from Keanu Reeves.
