John Wick 2: Keanu Reeves' gun skills are genuinely impressive

Forget Neo - it seems the legendary assassin is the role of the actor's career

If many of you assumed Neo - Reeves' character in The Matrix trilogy - to be the character of the actor's career, perhaps it's time to reassess: a video has surfaced showing Reeves hard at work for the upcoming John Wick sequel, looking extremely handy with a gun.

When John Wick was released in 2014, not many could have predicted the sleeper hit it would become, almost instantly earning a sequel in the process.

But it seems Reeves is relishing the opportunity to immerse himself in the role for a second time, as displayed in the video you can see below.

The video was released by Taran Tactical Innovations - a gun store based in LA.

Justifying the need for a sequel, Reeves told IGN: “For us it was just what is the next chapter? What is the continuation of this story? If the first one was a black belt, then this one is third degree black belt. It’s such a fun project and a great character.”

We wonder what the Shakespearean director who branded Keanu Reeves "a horrible actor" would make of the above video?

Filming has now completed on John Wick: Chapter 2 which will be released February 2017.
