Keanu Reeves is poised to hit big screens in a third installment of the John Wick franchise, slated for sometime next year. For those unfamiliar with the franchise and its brand of stylized mayhem, Reeves, 52, can still convincingly star as Wick, a mass-murdering semi-reformed hitman who sprints about, periotting and shooting guns akimbo.
But just how effective of a killing machine is the besuited Wick, described by fearful gangsters as a boogeyman?
Fortunately, someone took the time to do a body count this week, and it doesn’t disappoint.
The final count for “John Wick: Chapter 2” comes out to a chilling 128 dead bad guys — eat your heart out, Rambo. That’s a pretty big bump in dead bad guys compared to the first “John Wick” installment, in which Reeve’s pistol packing hitman netted just 77 kills.
Still, that puts Wick leaps beyond another infamous gunslinger with a particular set of skills: Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills, who killed just 40 bad guys in “Taken,” 32 in “Taken 2,” and 15 in “Taken 3.”
At this point, there’s no real telling what “John Wick 3” has in store for viewers, though the directors have hinted that it’ll bring us more on the secret world of assassins paid in gold doubloons. But one thing is for certain: “John Wick 3” is gonna have an impressive body count.

In a not-so-veiled threat to the Taliban, President Donald Trump argued on Monday the United States has the capacity to bring a swift end to the 17-year-old war in Afghanistan, but he is seeking a different solution to avoid killing "10 million people."
"I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth," Trump said on Monday at the White House. "It would be gone. It would be over in – literally in 10 days. And I don't want to do that. I don't want to go that route."
