Of this exhaustive montage, Owenerergy Studios sez:

It’s the question that drives us. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did. How many times does Keanu Reeves say “whoa,” and what movies does he say it in? When we first searched for the truth, it seemed like it would lie in a simple search of the web. The results were contradictory. Sites like IGN claimed he says it in 6 of his movies, while Looper, another website, claimed that it was a myth altogether and that he only says “whoa” in 4 of his films. They both couldn’t be correct, so we decided to find the answer the only way we knew possible: by watching every single one of Keanu Reeves’s movies.

Delorme sez:
