The timeless Mr Reeves

Can you guess the age of the John Wick star?

How old is Keanu Reeves, exactly?

The Hollywood star is out for vengeance in this brutal action thriller - and he still looks pretty damn good. We challenge you to guess Keanu's age in our picture quiz...

John Wick

Keanu Reeves returned to form with this action thriller. The then-51-year-old star plays the eponymous hero, who is on a quest for vengeance after a trio of Russian gang members steal his car and kill his beloved puppy (and who does that? Come on).

And these mobsters should be afraid. Very afraid. Because not only was the precious pooch a posthumous gift from Wick's dearly departed wife, but it also turns out that our retired hero's previous job involved being one of the world's deadliest assassins. If there is any part of you that doubts Keanu Reeves' ability to put the fear of God into someone, just wait until you see him in action.


The movie is directed by Chad Stahelski, who is actually best known for his stunt work on The Matrix films, TRON: Legacy300 and more. So the action is eye-popping to say the least. And despite being just a few years away from his free bus pass, Reeves holds his own as he takes on the more youthful and sprightly likes of Alfie Allen and Adrianne Palicki (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).


It seems hard to believe that the first Matrix film came out nearly 20 years ago. Especially as Reeves doesn't seem to have aged a day. Has he found the fountain of youth? This YouTube video, with over two million views, only furthers our suspicions...
