The direction, music, photography, choreography and work of Reeves were instrumental in raising this film above others of a similar cut, and Lionsgate immediately realized they had a gold mine on their hands. Chad Stahelski, who spent years working as a stunt double, managed to create something new for the fights that at this point were already very repetitive in other titles of the genre. But this did not mean, at any time, that the narrative work was abandoned in favor of blind action.
