How Many Stunts Keanu Reeves did in John Wick
The success of the John Wick film series, in which Keanu Reeves stars,
is largely attributable to his many stunt appearances.
The series has been so successful because of its deep backstory, touching characters,
and unique approach to action sequences.
In the first John Wick film, Reeves performed 90% of his stunts,
and in the sequel, he performed almost 95%.
Director Chad Stahelski can focus on the action without having to worry about
how to switch between the actor and his stunt doubles because
to this dedication. Reeves' ability to do most of his stunts himself adds to the authenticity of the scenario,
making the experience more engaging for the audience.
Keanu Reeves also benefits from doing his stunts since
it forces him to fully inhabit his role on set.
