When it comes to acting, I seriously have only two idols. I mean there are a LOT of really good actors out there, but in my heart, there are only two: Robert Downey Jr. and Keanu Reeves. In this list, we’re going to take a look at the top ten Keanu Reeves movies of all time. Don’t worry, we’re going to list Downey’s in the future. Cross my heart.
Although he was just a supporting character in this movie…well, it’s the very reason this movie made it to our list in the first place. He still managed to shine. Plus, it’s enjoyable to see how Keanu Reeves evolved from the teenage husband in Parenthood up to becoming the man who tracks down the Boogie Man. Oops. A little list spoiler.
9. A Scanner Darkly
If this list just wasn’t all about Keanu Reeves I might have thrown this in a little higher number – because it also involved ROBERT DOWNEY JR. This film is a must-see for all the nerds out there, and unlike Constantine, this was very much true to the source, promise.
8. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Keanu Reeves is well-known for his dark, mysterious, short-tempered but well-disciplined characters. But I want you guys to see him in a whole new light, that’s why we’re tossing this movie in here. Watch and enjoy!
7. Point Break
What happens when Fast and Furious meets adrenaline junkies meets Keanu Reeves? The answer? Point Break.
I just love it whenever he says that famous line of his. My name is John. John Constantine, asshole. Flicks that cigarette of his, and then battle some demons all the while battling lung cancer too. And whoever thought that Tilda Swinton could look so androgynous and hot at the same time?
5. Devil’s Advocate
And here we are at number five with the Devil’s Advocate. Because he works with Al Pacino. But aside from Al, this film has a lot of other stuff into it. A LOT. We’re talking different genres here. And it worked well so much together that it will make you wonder, how the hell did they all do it?
Speeding bus. Imminent threat of a bomb exploding. Innocent lives at stake. Sandra Bullock. What more can you ask for from an exciting classic movie? Put that same scenario into a boat minus Keanu freaking Reeves? I don’t think so. The first movie will always be the classic.
3. The Matrix
This is practically Keanu’s absolute classic. Forever etched in one of the pedestals of film history. Hence, I would understand if some fans out there would call me out right now because I didn’t list it up as my top one Keanu movie. And to that I say, make your own list! Because I simply love the other two films better. Honestly, any one of them could bag the top spot.
2. John Wick
The man who gets sent out to kill the Bogey Man? Oooh, that’s totally bad ass. I still can’t get enough of this film plus the fact that it’s getting a sequel. Can you guess how excited I am? You probably can, and that’s why John Wick is at number two.
1. 47 Ronin
A white guy playing a ronin. There’s a racist joke there somewhere but I don’t care. This film bags the top spot for three reasons. One. I am a sucker for samurai and swordsman films. If you’ve been an avid reader of Brosome, then you should probably know that by now. Second. The casting and story? Absolute jitters down my spine. Third. Nothing beats eastern fight scenes. Nothing.
