Good point, only one that came to my mind with a couple of minutes to think was Paula Patton and don't think she's done anything in a while and probably wouldn't pull the role off even as well as Berry.
This is what stands out about Keanu. Speed, Matrix and John Wick are some of the most rewarchable movies around. He doesn’t have the volume of acting credits, but damn if those 3 aren’t perfect. They make you forget about trash like Johnny Pneumonic.
Keanu isn't our modern day action star, and neither is fucking Tom Cruise. They are both our late stage golden age action stars who have managed to hold onto relevancy, unlike Bruce Willis, Arnold, and Stallone. If Reeves showed up in an Expendables movie I would be heavily offended.
John Wick is the only modern movie that has hit the right tempo for an action movie that we haven't seen since the late 90's. Even the 2nd one was brilliant with its action, cinematagrophy. All its really missing is a plethora of one liners, but we all remember "with a fucking pencil".
Constantine remains my top guilty pleasure movie of all time. I've watched that movie a dozen times, love it love it, and I don't care how much he varies from the graphic novel source material.
Best on screen Satan of all time as well. Even better than the South Park movie, although him boning Saddam Hussein makes it a close second.
Anyway, I was a little shook by Halle Berry as well, but she is at least decent eye candy. What was that horrible movie she was in with Hugh Jackson and Travolta about the hackers? She was toight in that bikini.
