Someone allowed Keanu Reeves to direct a movie. Someone thought to themselves, “You know, I bet Keanu Reeves can really get some good emotions out of actors. I bet he can do an amazing job telling other actors how to act in a movie.” Maybe that person has never seen one of Keanu’s films. Perhaps they haven’t seen his nuanced performance in Speed or the subtle beauty of his Neo in The Matrix. Wait. I think I might be confusing nuanced and subtle with clunky and unemotional. It’s early and my coffee isn’t kicking in.
Regardless, Keanu directing a movie is something that has happened and now we have to deal with the resulting plop. Gird your loins and prepare to experience the trailer for The Man of Tai Chi, starring Tiger Hu Chen (Kung Fu Hero), Karen Mok (Shaolin Soccer), Iko Uwais (The Raid), and Keanu himself.
