    Keanu Reeves: Unveiling The Real-Life Drifting Genius Behind 'John Wick

    In the realm of action-packed movies, Keanu Reeves is a name synonymous with thrill and adrenaline. His role as the relentless assassin John Wick has not only showcased his acting prowess but also his remarkable driving skills. It's well known that Reeves does most of his stunts in the "John Wick" series, and the latest installment, "John Wick: Chapter 4," has further revealed his mastery behind the wheel.  

    The "John Wick" franchise, known for its intense action sequences and brutal violence, has also carved out a niche for its exhilarating car chases. In "John Wick: Chapter 4," Keanu Reeves astonished fans with his impressive one-handed drifting and car handling, skillfully maneuvering a 1971 Plymouth Cuda through the streets of Paris.  

    Renowned racer and former "Top Gear America" host, Tanner Foust, served as Reeves' driving stunt double for the movie. Yet, Foust confessed that Reeves' adeptness at driving was such that he could have afforded the stunt drivers a few days off. "Keanu took to the action so well that I rate his drifting skills as an 8 out of 10 – high praise from one of the most well-known drivers around," said Foust.  

    One of the key factors contributing to Reeves' rapid mastery behind the wheel, according to Foust, is his motorcycle experience. Months of intense training in Berlin were instrumental in preparing Keanu for the film's high-octane scenes. It was here that a set of maneuvers was developed that Reeves could reliably perform repeatedly, pushing the boundaries without crossing the line.  

    The "John Wick" series has become a treasure trove for classic car enthusiasts, featuring gems like the Mustang Boss 429 and the Chevelle SS. In the latest installment, Reeves takes control of a 1971 Plymouth Cuda, the vehicle he mastered for thrilling sequences, including a gripping car chase through Paris.  

    "John Wick: Chapter 4" is a visual feast of vehicular action, interspersed with fistfights and gun violence. It balances the mayhem with humor, making it an entertaining watch. While the film is still on the big screen, fans can look forward to its arrival on streaming platforms soon. If you're a lover of action, thrill, and cars, Keanu Reeves' phenomenal driving performance in the movie is not to be missed.
