Keanu felt like a daft name for a film, since it’s the first name of one particular film star, so everyone will confuse it for something about him. Then again, elements of it feel like Mr Reeves’ recent-ish (depending on which country you’re in) John Wick, where his dog meets an unfortunate end early on. This time, it’s about a man with a cat, named Keanu, which gets stolen.
The two friends in this movie then cook up a bizarre plot to get it back by by posing as drug dealers for a street gang.
The film also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Jason Mitchell, Luis Guzmán, Will Forte, Nia Long, Rob Huebel, Method Man, with Peter Atencio directing, and a script from Jordan Peele and Alex Rubens, and whereas before the trailer I didn’t care for it, after watching it, I definitely want to see it.
