The International trailer for Keanu Reeves‘ directorial debut Man Of Tai Chi has hit the Internet. The movie opens stateside sometime later this year. Reeves plays the controller of a Beijing underground fight-to-the-death club who brings in a skilled tai chi practitioner (Tiger Hu Chen, Reeves’ Matrix stuntman and trainer) to fight in his deadly martial arts fighting circus . . . wait, circus(?) . . . I mean circuit.
I went into this thinking I wouldn’t be interested, but after checking out the trailer I think I might just buy a theater ticket. The fight scenes look crisp and interesting and the slippery slope that Chen’s character is put on should provide some entertaining drama.
What do you think?
