I agree with you on that one.
If I’m reading this correctly, “Ballerina” wasn’t always a “John Wick” spin-off until it got picked up by Lionsgate.

Oh, that's not a great sign.
So John Wick 3 is coming to HBO Go on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing this.
Will you pay for it with a gold coin?
... no, I'll pay for it with stolen HBO Go.
John Wick X Yakuza movie, where John wick ends up in Japan and fights Kazuma Kiryu and then teams up with him.
Awesome, or AWESOME?

I have a feeling the Yakuza games would fit right in, especially the Amon clan.
Worth pointing out the Continental Quarterly (JW EU such as it is) states there is a Continental in Tokyo.
At least John wouldn't kill Kazuma, especially because of the latter's tendency to not kill.
They'd totally be allies.
Its all Rubber bullets, knives, bats, staplers, chairs.....
Kiryu never killed anyone, honest.
It’s not his fault that the butler he was using as a human shield died. It was all on that gangster who shot him.
Plus the HEAT action where he shoves the guy's head into a microwave? Kiryu doesn't turn it on, the shopkeep does. So if the guy dies from his head being microwaved, that's not on Kiryu, it's on the shopkeep.
... god I love Yakuza.

One of my favorites was Kiryu fishing out a handful of nails to punch through a guy's face. Or just jabbing them with a syringe found in the trash. He'll be fine tomorrow.
Yakuza 7 is going to be an absolute trip. The RPG set-up is going to make those extra actions carry more weight.
3:18 - "isn't this basically an easier version of the situation in Parabellum?"
4:40 - "the Purgers make up for in numbers and weapons what they lack in skill"
10:05 - "can he do it? Yeah, probably.

Yeah, this just seems like John Wick 3 but with added chaos which would only help him since it seemed like literally anyone who gives a shit about the prestige of killing John Wick would already be doing so.
There's just a bunch of scrubs that can act as cannon fodder or provide John with bullets. Not like "laws" impeded literally anyone in any of the Wick movies.
I feel like he'd just chill out, killing whatever murderous asshole comes his way, until the hitmen are released.
If he can blam his way through professional killers with relative ease then shmoes with guns and high hopes aren't realistically going to give John much hassle, unless he gets absolutely mobbed and even then I can see him getting out of it mostly unscathed.

I just don't see him getting any more mobbed than he was in Parabellum. Everyone who knew who he was and wanted him dead already was after him. The only new variable is "are random people and chaos from The Purge going to help or hinder him" and I say help.
The movies has him mobbed by actual trained killers & he takes them all out with general ease.
No way is he gonna have trouble with what is basically some regular people playing at being psycho murderers.

Imagine him just going to "visit" the NFF after the first one.
One thing also worth noting is that Conservation of Ninjutsu would be in effect in this context. It is possible in a gunfight for a sufficiently trained person to hold off an army. Admittedly, him having to go outside might be a bit of an issue (the ideal strategy would be for him to hole up in his house and shoot people who approach it), but even without that it would be doable.
Indeed, the real question is if The Purge could survive John Wick.
He doesn't really feel the need to right wrongs unless he's personally affected by them, ie only going on a rampage against the Russian mob after the boss's idiot son killed his dog for no reason. As such, I don't see him trying to end the Purge.
If they send those hit squads after him, he might take it personally.
