The first teaser trailer has arrived for Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut, Man Of Tai Chi, in which The Matrix star gears up for more chopsocky action.
The new film follows some form of shady fight-fixing organisation headed up by Reeves himself, whose stated goal is to see “a pure-hearted, good-natured man of Tai Chi become a killer.”
We know this from Reeves’ voiceover, which sets up the fist-fighting antics ably enough, even if it doesn't give us a huge amount in terms of plot details.
Take a look at the first trailer, below:
While it certainly seems as though Reeves has recruited some high-calibre fighters and stuntmen to carry off some admittedly impressive fight scenes, the dialogue sometimes seems second rate by comparison. “Let….the show… begin,” being one line that immediately springs to mind.
Directed by Reeves and co-starring Tiger Hu Chen as the titular fighter, Man Of Tai Chi opens in the UK later this year, with a release date yet to be confirmed. A cult classic in the making? Perhaps…
