Let’s face it; when you think Keanu Reeves, your brain doesn’t naturally connect to badass, or killer or anything violent at all. Even when Reeves Neo-ed his way through The Matrix, it was all Zen dude in a coat who just happened to find himself fighting off some other dudes in similar attire. I mean come on, Trinity was the real badass. But things have changed! Apparently Keanu’s been hanging around Al…er Ian McShane, and like the good student he is, Reeves has absorbed the knowledge and found a way to emulate a true badass. Check out this trailer for John Wick, and tell me you don’t see a budding Liam Neeson.
Are you not trembling? Okay, so maybe I lied.
Anyway, John Wick also stars Willem Dafoe, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki, Alfie Allen, Jason Isaacs and Michael Nyqvist. The co-stars alone make it at least worth a VOD rental, because I seriously doubt you’ll run to the theaters October 24th. Sorry, Keanu; you seem like a nice guy.
