It’s been a while since I wrote a Crush post (or any post, in general). It felt appropriate and timely to feature my crush Keanu Reeves since his latest film, John Wick: Chapter Two came out this weekend. I loved every minute of it, and I’m already planning on seeing it again. No spoilers here, but here’s a re-cap of the first film.
John is an assassin pulled out of retirement when he goes on a revenge spree to avenge the death of his dog, a gift from his wife who had just passed away. Oh, and they also stole his beloved car. It’s super violent and shot well with long takes on a super steady camera. None of that Jason Bourne shaky cam. And seriously, look at that swagger out of the first film, John Wick. How does he make black turtlenecks look so badass?
His character is a man of few words and all action. I loved the fight sequences and the ornate set design in this underground world of international assassins.
Keanu Reeves really committed to this role, and I’m crushing so hard on his badassery. It’s hard to believe that at over 50 years old, he can do the moves and stunts he does and look amazing doing them, what a babe.
