Taking a look at  Wick's transformation from a former hitman to a legendary assassin.  

John Wick's evolution from an ex-hitman to a legendary assassin is a journey marked by personal loss, relentless vengeance, and a reputation for unparalleled skill.  

Introduced in the first film, John is a retired assassin grieving the death of his wife, Helen.  

His attempt at a peaceful life is shattered when a gang led by Iosef Tarasov, son of a crime lord, kills his beloved dog, a final gift from Helen. This act pulls John back into the world of assassination. 

John's transformation is driven by a combination of personal vendetta and his exceptional abilities.  

Known as "Baba Yaga," or the "Boogeyman," his legend grows with each encounter. Throughout the series, John displays masterful combat skills, tactical genius, and an unwavering determination, taking on countless adversaries from the criminal underworld. 

By "John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum," he becomes a symbol of defiance against the High Table, the governing body of assassins.  

His actions not only reinforce his status as a legendary assassin but also disrupt the power dynamics within the criminal hierarchy.  

John's evolution is a testament to his resilience, skill, and the enduring power of his personal code of honor.
