Keanu Reeves becomes a badass while training for John Wick 2

One of the many commendable aspects of John Wick (opens in new tab) were its slick, gun-fu action sequences, which were all the more impressive for being predominantly practical and for clearly showing the film's star Keanu Reeves doing most of the stunts. The actor is preparing to play the titular character once more in John Wick: Chapter Two, and a glimpse of his insane training regimen has emerged online.

Check out the amazing footage below...

The accuracy Reeves displays here with varying types of weaponry is staggering, and the fact that he's moving through this course so quickly makes it more impressive. On a more serious note, Reeves' dedication to the role is something audiences will no doubt appreciate when the film is released next year.

Directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Keanu Reeves, Bridget Moynahan, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Common, John Leguizamo, and Ruby Rose, John Wick: Chapter Two is released in UK and US cinemas on February 10, 2017.
