The Day the Earth Stood Still
Throughout the entire movie you will wonder, why why why!! Why the title? Why can’t Keanu Reeves for once be human and not some super out-of-the-world being trying to save earth and the human race. Why go through the torture of sitting through 90+ minutes of mindlessness. At the end of it when you think the climax is just about the begin, the movie ends with everyone staring at their watches in disbelief as time has stood still.
I know of far fetched ideas but the direction of the movie is so bizarre that it makes you feel frustrated about spending precious time on a weekend on such an obnoxious attempt at making a movie. Just because the Matrix trilogy was a success doesn’t mean that reel life Neo (a.k.a. Keanu Reeves in real life) can be featured with different super powers in drab concept of a story and then expect it to be a success. I’m a fan of Keanu Reeves but his latest venture leaves me disappointed. 😦
