Keanu Reeves has had a more interesting career than people give him credit for. Let’s see his filmography.
Tom Ludlow in Street Kings
William Foster in the replicas
Richard Ramsey in The Whole Truth
Evan Webber in Knock Knock
Johnny in Johnny Mnemonic
20. Perry Lyman in Thumbsucker
The movie had a weird thumb-sucking addiction plot. Perry is a character brimming with genuine kindness. He’s one of the few people in the film to be honest about his own flaws.
19. Donaka Mark in Man of Tai Chi
Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut has been better than expected.
18. Frank in Destination Wedding
The movie bombed, but Keanu and Winona Ryder’s chemistry was flawless.
17. Constantine to Constantine
The DC character battling demonic souls was a nice change of pace for Keanu.
16. Kevin Lomax in Devil’s Advocate
Lomax is an undefeated lawyer working in a new law firm run by the devil himself.
15. Julian Mercer in Something Gotta Give
Keanu was the “guy next” needed so the film could drop him to give the main cast an elaborate romantic ending. Diane Keaton ditches him for a 60-year-old Jack Nicholson!
14. Alex Wyler in The Lake House
Keanu struggled with romance, but The Lake House suited him just fine because it was sci-fi mixed with romance elements. Plus, he worked incredibly well with Sandra Bullock.
13. Matt in River’s Edge
In a murderous setting, Keanu plays the honest man of God. Of course, it can’t go well, right?
12. Jonathan Harker in Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Keanu Reeves is a lawyer who took on Dracula as a client. So he can’t be associated with normal people as a lawyer, huh?
11. Don John in Much Ado About Nothing
Keanu in a serious role like this was a bit new, quoting Shakespearean quotes with a hint of sadness and brooding.
10. Nelson Moss in Sweet November
A woman just across the street asks Keanu to live with her for a month, and her life will change. Uhhh….
9. Scott Favor in My Own Private Idaho
The chemistry between longtime best friends Reeves and River Phoenix is terrific.
8. Himself in Always Be My Maybe
It was a well done cameo.
7. Donnie Barksdale in The Gift
Donnie Barksdale is a hidden monster played exceptionally by Keanu Reeves. He was the most consistently good thing in the movie.
6. Jack Tavern in a hurry
A classic movie about a bomb on a bus rigged to explode after a certain speed. Keanu Reeves effortlessly pairs up with Sandra Bullock.
5. Johnny Utah in Point Break
Johnny. Utah. East. A. FBI. Agent. The duality in his character of a lost boy is something still fresh to see.
4. Bob Arctor in A Scanner Darkly
Keanu Reeves plays a futuristic undercover cop as the world has lost its war on drugs. Keanu’s tone and pacing give Bob a great character arc in this animated movie.
3. Ted in the Bill & Ted franchise
Keanu Reeves connects with Ted’s outwardly gregarious and inwardly sweet but melancholy sides with exceptional ease. Another classic!
2. John Wick in the John Wick Franchise
Another absolutely perfect role for Keanu. From The Matrix he received praise and applause, but from John Wick he earned the respect of the film industry and the public.
1. Neo in the Matrix Franchise
It’s like he was born to be Neo in The Matrix. Keanu Reeves became a household name after the first film in the franchise.
