Keanu Reeves, Hollywood’s baddest actor, is also supposedly a retired assassin in the franchise John Wick, the fourth chapter of which will be released in theaters on March 24, 2023. But what else do we know?

299 dead

Obviously, an assassin who comes out of his enforced and enforced suspension kills a lot… and sometimes very creatively. Here is the famous body count — or “body count” — from each of the first three feature films in the franchise.

John Wick (2014)

In the first movie, John Wick kills at least 76 villains, or 0.8 deaths per minute. A pistol, a rifle, a knife, a car, etc., there are enough funds. The pump-action shotgun is the only slightly original way to kill in this first episode, the weapon will only have one victim. Another interesting figure: our man shoots mostly in the head with an 86.52% success rate.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

By his return, Keanu Reeves’ alter ego is killing 123 criminals, or 1.1 deaths per minute. Among the most unusual methods are two deaths with a pencil and one with a tourniquet.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)

Trying to survive, John Wick executes 88 villains, or 0.7 deaths per minute. In addition to the gun, our man shows imagination, because this time he uses a car (one death), an ax (another death) … and even a book (another death). And it is precisely when he is in the premises of the Continental Hotel that he is most deadly, because he eliminates 34 of his enemies there.

PS As the co-directors noted, innocent people are not killed, which means that in the saga you will never see a dead policeman.
