Keanu Reeves knows kung fu (c’mon, The Matrix quote, you know you’ve mimicked it 1,000 times over), so it’s fitting that his first directorial feature be about a man of martial arts, specifically the subtle art of Tai Chi. Aptly titled Man Of Tai Chi, Reeves goes for a true, immersive feel by filming in China, creating a foreign brawler that could be marketed anywhere. Don’t worry Keanu fans, he gets out from behind the camera to play a complex character as well, and delivers a rather stellar performance. All the haters out there really won’t have anything to say about Keanu’s production, even if it is a little generic plot-wise, because Reeves delivers a tight watch from start to finish. Keanu may know his kung fu, but his crew knows just a little bit more in this admirable visionary debut.
