Let’s be honest for a moment. Keanu Reeves is a pretty mediocre actor. In most movies he appears, he occupies physical space, yet at the same time barely registers, almost as most of him existed in some sort of parallel dimension and what we see on movie screens is only a shadow the real person.
Like Roger Zelazny’s Amber.
That being said, I kind of want to see John Wick.
And sure, the title seems inspired by John Carter or Jack Reacher. And despite the fact that the movie seems vaguely similar to The Equalizer–though probably not as good–there’s something oddly engergizing about an engaged Keanu Reeves.
