The American actor was speaking to the BBC on the release of his new film, 'Henry's Crime' in which he plays a bank robber who pointedly does not use any guns for his heists.
When if comes to violence in his own movies, the star of the Matrix films says "I'm not going to be frivolous with it, I'm not going to be pornographic with it" but also said he doesn't think a film can be linked to violent crimes committed.

Keanu Reeves Addresses His "Sad Keanu" Meme in BBC Interview
Keanu Reeves gave an official response to the "Sad Keanu meme" on the BBC: "I mean, do I wish I didn't get my picture taken while I was eating sandwich on the streets of New York? Yeah."
Keanu Reeves: My movie guarantees sex
In fact, some of his fans have confessed they wanted to embark on a lovemaking marathon after it had ended – prompting Keanu to consider using their reactions as a promotional ploy.
“It's a really good afternoon film. I've had a couple of people come out after it and say, 'Wow, we saw your film and we just wanna go have sex now.' Maybe it just makes you wanna hold someone close. Of all the comments I've heard, that's my favourite,” he said in an interview with British newspaper The Guardian. "Yeah! 'Watch Henry's Crime! Guaranteed sex! If your girl doesn't put out after this, we'll give you half your money back!'"
Keanu admits he is a perfectionist when it comes to making movies and often insists on redoing certain scenes several times. The 46-year-old star wishes he could have worked with late director Stanley Kubrick, who was renowned for asking his cast to repeat scenes until he was satisfied. Keanu claims he is such a perfectionist, he may even have been too much for Stanley to cope with.
"I would've been his wet dream,” Keanu laughed. “After take 400, Kubrick would've been, 'All right, cut!' and I'd be, like, 'Stanley, can I do one more?' 'Whaaat?' 'Look, I know I'm just drinking this glass of water, but I think I can find another side to this. Let's just do one more, OK?' 'Arrrgh, OK, Reeves.' You know what? I would've broken Kubrick. 'Please, sir, can I have some more?' 'Take 600. All you gotta do is walk across the road.' 'Come on, Stanley, one more!'"http://www.musicrooms.net/movies/23987-keanu-reeves-my-movie-guarantees-sex.html
