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.

Lorena Mendez hung up on a representative from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation when the organization called to offer her a mortgage-free home as a widow of a serviceman.

She assumed it was a scam.

Mendez is the widow of Marine Lance Cpl. Norberto Mendez-Hernandez, who enlisted in the Marines in 2010 and was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2011. He was 22 years old.

At the time, his son Anthony was 3 years old and he had a newborn daughter, Audrey.

"I hung up on them a couple of times before I Googled them and then I called them back crying," Mendez said as she stood in the kitchen of her new home Tuesday in Horizon City. Her children, now 11 and 9, stood next to her, smiling.
