'John Wick' Keanu Reeves

Watch my video review above of Keanu Reeves's new action film, John Wickwhere he plays a one-time hit man goaded back into action by (as I mentioned in an earlier column) the heinous acts of some completely expendable (and soon-to-be expended) Russian mobsters. Reeves, now 50, returns to the action genre years after his heyday in The Matrix trilogy, and he's in fine form. I think fans will love his work here.
