Moving behind the camera for his directorial debut, Keanu Reeves has returned to a very familiar subject to all fans of the Matrix Trilogy. Man of Tai Chi sees Keanu play a Svengali figure who arranges no holds barred underground fighting tournaments.
A peace loving Tai Chi expert is lured into the seedy underworld of illegal fighting and has to come to a decision to fight or flee.
With a rather spectacular trailer showcasing the extraordinary fighting techniques on display this looks like it could be a very interesting film to see. The story may not be anything particularly original but it looks very stylish and lets face it, most people who watch these films do so for the fight scenes rather than the character development.
Surprisingly this film does not yet have an official release date but is said to be hitting the big screen sometime in 2013.
