Ever since the whirlwind success of movies such as Speed and The Matrix, Keanu Reeves has been no stranger to delivering heavy blows, usually with deadly consequences. And most recently, the Hollywood actor starred in one of most action-packed blockbusters of the 'assassin genre.'
[John Wick](movie:1116115) follows the adrenaline-fueled story of a hit-man who seeks revenge on a group of gangsters who take away everything that he ever cares about, namely the cutest dog in the world, his floppy-eared beagle puppy Daisy.
If you haven't seen the movie yet, take a look at the trailer below and hurry up and get watching:
For action fans in doubt, this movie certainly proved that Keanu has still very much got "it" when it comes to kicking some serious ass. With slick fist fight sequences, intense gun battles and bad guys dropping left, right and center, John Wick is certainly an action buff's wet dream.
So much so that Nick DiNizio has created a short fan clip that catalogues every single kill in the movie, rounding up the number to a rather shocking figure.
Check out the video in full below, but bear in mind that it contains BIG SPOILERS!
Wow! Keanu really does shoot a lot of people over the 101-minute time period! Even though killing comes so naturally to the legendary assassin, that's still quite a lot of kills for a tiny pup!
Keanu's death count may be impressive, but compared to other blockbusters in the action movie genre, John Wick barely even scrapes the barrel. Here is a short summary of the top three of some of the bloodiest films out there. You'll never believe what the kill counts on these bad boys are!
1. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003)
Death count: 836
Despite being a PG-13, this installment of the Lord of the Rings franchise has a whopping 836 number of on-camera deaths! I bet lots of parents would have thought twice about letting their kids see that if they knew beforehand.
2. Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
Death count: 610
During the Crusades, a decades-long war was bound to have hundreds of casualties.
3. 300 (2007)
Death count: 600
Full of blood, gore and violence, the Battle of Thermopylae in 300 is as epic as it gets. As the Persian Empire's army sweeps across the world, anything that stands in its way is destroyed, including 600 actors and extras, it would seem.
Would you go on a murderous rampage if someone killed your dog?
