Legendary Berghain bouncer Sven Marquardt starred in a cameo role in Keanu Reeves’ latest film “John Wick: Chapter 4”.
The film was released in the UK last week (March 24) and is the fourth installment of the exciting John Wick franchise.
After its release, many fans noticed a cameo of the iconic bouncer Berghain, who appears several times throughout the film and has just one phrase: “I’m Klaus.”
The premise of the fourth issue of the series follows the main character, who tries to fight aristocratic crime barons who sit at a High Table, traveling around the world for this. From there, the immaculately dressed killer heads to iconic locations including Paris, New York and Berlin, where he meets Marquardt.
Here, his character is an associate of Wick and helps the main character find the villain he was ordered to kill. As expected, the Berlin scene includes a huge fight scene taking place in a Berghain-style nightclub with water structures from ceiling to floor.
Numerous other famous faces also appear in the recently released film, including Laurence Fishburne and musician Rina Sawayama.
The latter plays a character named Akira, and also contributed to the soundtrack to the film with the song “Eye For An Eye”. Speaking about her guest appearance in September, Sawayama told NME: “My team is so shocked by the idea that we were even offered John Wick, so I think… none of us really know what’s going to happen. We’re just like, “What happens to people in movies?”
In a four-star review published last week, NME praised John Wick: Chapter 4 for his dedication to the action genre and his “mind-blowing medical ambitions” in carefully choreographed action scenes.
Earlier this month, director Chad Stahelski defended the length of the film. This followed some criticism, which claimed that the release was too long – 169 minutes.
“If this is criticism, we will accept it,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve ever worried about ourselves, we’re just watching a movie. I think it’s the length that we think is the best version of the movie… We tried longer, we tried much shorter. This is what we think is a good movie.”
