Keanu Reeves returns in "John Wick: Chapter 4" as the unstoppable assassin fighting the High Table.
The sequel has some of Reeves' biggest stunts and fight scenes in his career.
Reeves' dialogue decreases with each "John Wick" movie, speaking only 380 words in "Chapter 4."
He spoke only 484 words in the first film, but Reeves' role is more than just reciting lines.
The character requires a significant amount of stunt work because of his determined nature.
Cowriter Michael Finch said it's surprising how dedicated Reeves is to not speaking.
Reeves even whittled down his own lines in "Chapter 4," reducing a back-and-forth conversation to a single line.
Wick says an average of four words per line in the fourth film, with 27% consisting of a single word.
Finch worked with Shay Hatten, Reeves, and Stahelski during nine-hour scriptwriting sessions.
Reeves acted out every single character during the scriptwriting sessions, being a one-man show.
Reeves' dedication to the role of John Wick extends beyond dialogue to embodying the character's physicality.
