Whatever the reason fans have made the leap to connecting the two films, the comparison is definitely warranted. I mean, you can’t help but to notice the events that trigger the two characters are eerily similar. John Wick goes on a bad guy killing spree due to the death of his dog. And in Hutch Mansell’s case, it’s the theft of his daughter’s kitty cat bracelet. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both completely understandable reactions and everything, but it’s hard not to connect the two men through their sentimental motivations.
