Keanu Reeves Goes to Hell / Duels with the Devil TWICE
Keanu Reeves tends to get a lot of heat from folks on the internet where talking sh** about others is a spectator sport. Aside from the sarcastic GIF image above, we’re going to skip the typical ripping on Keanu. After all, how often can the same jokes get repeated before it just becomes awkwardly unfunny? We’re looking at you SNL.
Anyway, like many actors one of Keanu’s favorite types of characters is the strong/silent hero. While some of us may harbor a desire to save the day (and get the girl), who among us would be willing to square off against the greatest evil in the universe…the devil? Keanu has surprisingly done just this on two different occasions. The first instance was in the 1997 thriller Devil’s Advocate.
The film was basically about the eternal struggle between good and evil (very original material). Pacino plays a charismatic lawyer who recruits Keanu’s character to his high-powered NY law firm. Spoiler alert… Pacino is the devil in disguise. However if you haven’t already figured that out from the movie poster alone then we’ll be sure to pray for you. Keanu capped off the film by seemingly outwitting the devil… but not really.
In 2005 Keanu dueled with the devil again in the movie Constantine which was based on the comic-book series Hellblazer. Keanu’s character, John Constantine, fights all sorts of CG demons and ultimately the devil himself (this time played awesomely by Peter Stormare). Oddly enough, Keanu’s character’s visit to hell in the movie mirrors a previous trip he took to the lake of fire in 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Anyway, Keanu capped off the film by seemingly outwitting the devil… but not really.
