Keanu Reeves has cemented himself in Hollywood as one of the most prominent actors in the industry.
After decades of creating some of the best movies, he’s amassed quite a catalog. For this video, we’ll be listing down 5 of the greatest Keanu Reeves movies starting with:
1. The Matrix
It wouldn’t be a top 5 Keanu Reeves movies list without The Matrix kicking it off.
This action-packed, CGI-revolutionizing movie is beloved by many and has been considered a cult classic ever since it came out.
The Matrix has pretty much guaranteed Keanu Reeves’ career, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you definitely should. Neo’s story isn’t one to miss.
Starring alongside Sandra Bullock, Speed may well be Keanu Reeves’ best movie if it wasn’t for The Matrix.
Speed tells the story of LAPD Swat team member Jack Traven who finds himself in one of the most challenging bomb threat situations imaginable. A bus is rigged with bombs that are set to detonate if it isn’t driving over 50 miles an hour.
Speed is a must-see if you’re looking for a different kind of action compared to some of his movies.
3. River’s Edge
One of Keanu’s earlier films, River’s Edge, is as underrated as underrated comes. Exploring the dilemma of a group of friends who ends up caught between protecting a friend and doing the right thing, the movie showcases the excellent acting chops and potential of Keanu Reeves, who stars as Matt.
It isn’t as action-packed as The Matrix or as thrilling as Speed, but River’s Edge definitely has its ways.
4. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
If there’s a movie that would’ve been a make-or-break for Keanu, Bill, and Ted’s Excellent Adventure may have been it.
After the success of the simple-minded movie that revolved around Bill Preston, played by Alex Winter, and Ted Logan by Reeves, his career had become guaranteed. The dim-witted acting is far from what you’d expect from Keanu Reeves if you only started becoming a fan these past few years, but fans since the 80s have known him quite well as the goofy kid, yet charming kid.
5. John Wick
Last and not the least on this list is John Wick. With four movies down, this is arguably one of the best movie franchises in history and the best for Keanu. We can’t decide which movie is the best, so it’s up to you. But whatever movie you choose, Mr. Wick and his conflicts with the Continental are always a classic.
