"Let...the show...begin!" First trailer for Keanu Reeves' directorial debut Man of Tai Chi

Man of Tai Chi

I think there's a lot of people interested in seeing how Keanu Reeves handles directing duties for his first film behind the camera, MAN OF TAI CHI, but I have to warn you that this first trailer from Bleeding Cool is pretty underwhelming. I've read some comments that the preview is cut similar to Hong Kong films from the 1980s and the trailer is definitely aimed towards the Chinese market. However, the trailer is just...boring.

Reeves has said before that he wants to take filming martial arts to the next level with his Bot and Dolly camera rig but there isn't much from the trailer that looks impressive. It is a short preview though and maybe they are holding back from showing us more but right now it looks fairly generic.

About a martial artist in Beijing who gets sucked into an underground fighting tournament, MAN OF TAI CHI also stars Simon Yam and Iko Uwais, and currently does not have a release date.

Extra Tidbit: After the trailer I'm not sure about Keanu Reeves as the villain. His delivery is...just...so...wooden.
