"When the price on an assassin's head goes up each time he kills, it's Nerf or nothing."
This is the perfect collaboration of two of our favourite things.
And as I Crash Your Game on YouTube pointed out:
14 kills in this video, 43 shots fired by John. That means every shot was 0.3255813953 of a kill. 78 people are killed in the original movie. Sticking with this ratio, Wick would have fired 239.5714286074 nerf bullets. The real question is: who would have picked them up afterwards? I think it would be the cleanup crew John hired. They would have to get paid though. How much? A pack of 30 N-strike bullets cost $10 AUD ($7.69 USD) It would take 7.9857142869 packs of 30 to use 239.5714286074 bullets. That means it would cost $79.857142869 AUD ($61.42 USD) A typical video game costs $80 AUD ($61.53 USD) Therefore, to clean up the (nerf) bullets in John Wick, you could pay the clean up crew by giving them 3 copies of John Wick: The Game.
Who said math isn't fun?
We love John Wick. You love John Wick (unless you're wrong). But pinpointing exactly what has made the film a cult classic is a little more difficult than yelling "it's an incredible revenge film with amazing action sequences and a cute dog" over and over again.
But Gearbox's Borderlands writer Mikey Neumann has nailed in in his breakdown.
