Keanu Reeves starring as a Samurai warrior in the 1800s? And he's playing one that holds the key to a legendary group of fighters getting justice for the murder of their leader? Boy, does it work. Reeves got back to the action genre with magnificent moves we haven’t seen from him since he realized “I know Kung Fu” in The Matrix.
I know, I know – The Replacements is kinda cheesy, but we love this movie for some reason. Reeves is perfectly cast as a quarterback who breaks a picket line to achieve his dream of being a professional football QB. Gene Hackman is sublime as his coach and the cast of characters that surrounds Reeves in this uplifting, romantic and truly funny tale is absolutely pitch perfect.
I Love You To Death
Although the star in this dark comedy is Kevin Kline as a philandering husband, the highlight is Keanu Reeves and William Hurt as idiotic killers hired to off him by his wife (Tracey Ullman). Watching Hurt and Reeves in their utter stupidity is a lesson for actors that less is more. Actors of less skill would have pushed it, but they truly just nail it.
Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey
Although not quite as good as the first Bill and Ted movie, the sequel was still quite the entertaining flick. I mean, when you can put Death in a movie and have him be likable and able to jam like a rock star, what’s not to appreciate? Oh, and the robotic Bill and Ted are to die for!
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
If Keanu Reeves appears lost in Francis Ford Copolla’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula it is because that is exactly how the actor played it. He is nothing if not calculating in his performance and the entire entanglement between Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman does not work unless she is drawn to Oldman by being turned off by Reeves.
Again Reeves goes period and we truly appreciate his turn in this mid-'80s take on a classic piece of literature. When he goes toe-to-toe in a fencing match with John Malkovich, it is the culmination of a whole lot of frustration… on many levels!
