Keanu going back to the well of what he does best and known for...Neo Anderson Matrix. Should be interesting...

Keanu Reeves revealed the first trailer for his directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi, at the Beijing International Film Festival and you can now watch it online below.

The film reunited Reeves with star Tiger Hu Chen, who was martial arts trainer for "The Matrix" trilogy, as well as Yuen Woo-ping, who was action choreographer of the Wachowskis' trilogy. The film co-stars Karen Mok and Iko Uwais

Not much love for our beloved Neo..guess it's just me & you Oink. Btw I just watched the snake & the sorcerer and it was dud. The PQ was flawless, the direction and cinematography was approaching Yimou goodness, the women were super hot, yet even Jet could not make it watchable...what a waste.

TRIED to watch Man of Tai Chi last night.

A real turkey....
A very uninspired screenplay, way too much of a "been there, done that" feel to it.
Reeves just doesn't have what it takes directing-wise here.

And it's also too bad, Keanu is wasted on-screen.
He brings his acting "A" game, but it is all for naught.

Who knows?
Maybe he will improve behind the camera...or not.wink.gif

I know bud,..I saw this garbage couple months ago actually but didn't even bother to post it here since I thought nobody would even bother seeing it. He def is better in front of the camera, hoping he'll redeem himself with 47 Ronin.

The trailer for 47 Ronin looks great.
