Watch: 7-Minute Video Counts Down Every Kill In 'John Wick'

He may have started his career playing a dim slacker in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” but the action genre is what solidified Keanu Reeves as a star, with turns in Kathryn Bigelow‘s zen surfer heist masterpiece “Point Break,” Jan de Bont‘s slick and fun “Speed” and, of course, the Wachowskis ’ influential genre mash-up “The Matrix.” It may be too early to place last year’s “John Wick” with Reeves’ highlights, but it’s not too soon to tally up how many people Reeves utterly destroyed on screen in the film.

A video edited by Nick DiNizio, via AV Club, has brought together every single on-screen kill by Reeve’s one-man-wrecking crew, the eponymous John Wick. The final tally? 76.

We’re no Reeves expert, but we’d wager that’s the most kills ever credited to one of his characters, with the exception of the “Matrix” series (though we wonder if the agents can really be counted as kills, given that they can’t actually die). Watch every glorious henchmen death below, or just watch the whole movie again to see more of the great action choreography on display in the Chad Stahelski and David Leitch directed film.
