7. John Wick

Original Release Date: October 24th, 2014

Box Office Earnings: We can thank the world for kicking off the John Wick franchise. The original film had a budget of 20 million dollars, and it made about 43 million domestically. Not too shabby. But it really wowed overseas with a total worldwide haul of 130 million, a tally which likely got the first sequel green lit.

Critical Acclaim: John Wick is a true crowd pleaser with an 86% approval rating with critics and an 80% approval from audiences.

About the Role: A petulant gangster (Alfie Allen) kills John Wick’s puppy and steals his vintage car. Big mistake. Huge. John Wick is a highly trained assassin, ready for revenge, vengeance, and revengance. No, that’s not technically a word, but John Wick made it a thing, so let’s go with it.

Simply the Best: Fueled by Reeves magnetic onscreen presence, John Wick pulses forward with gratuitous violence, stylish neon subtitles, and non-stop action sequences that leave audiences breathless. With three John Wick films released and a fourth on the way in 2020, it’s safe to say that Keanu Reeves has created a James Bond for the new millennium.
