I have a theory about movies, specifically about the people who go to see the movies. My theory is that audiences really like to watch Keanu Reeves kill people.
I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that Keanu seems to be pretty centered in real life. He’s one of the few celebs about whom you never seem to hear anything negative. Whenever Keanu’s in the news, he’s either volunteering at a homeless shelter or he’s in the park feeding ducks. You never hear about Keanu acting obnoxious and pulling a star trip on anyone. He seems to be at peace with both the world and his place in it. While all the other celebs are on twitter being grumpy, Keanu seems like he should be hanging out on a ranch and having a beer with Kurt Russell and Jeff Bridges.
In short, real world Keanu seems to have reached a state of perfect zen. So, it’s kind of fun to watch him tear through these action movies, battling either computer viruses or international mobsters. The man who once known as Neo is now best known as John Wick. When we first met John Wick, he won our hearts by avenging a dog. Judging by the just released trailer of John Wick 3, he’s still a friend to animals.
He’s also still got people looking to kill him, of course. Judging from the trailer, John Wick 3 looks like it will be an action spectacular. You have to wonder about the mercenaries and killers who keep getting sent after Wick. I imagine that, when they find out what they’re expected to do, a lot of them quit on the spot. No one can kill John Wick.
