So I’ve previously been thinking that this film might possibly work for me on some level — that somehow it might be just strange enough and magical enough and fanciful enough to just work. This clip makes me doubt that a lot. There’s nothing particularly engaging about it, but the worst part is, Keanu Reeves is obviously fighting a CGI monster. That thing looks so fake that I doubt even a four year old would believe it was a real monster.
Who knows, maybe it could still be good and the story could overcome the bad effects. But I’m not counting on it. Frankly, why wouldn’t you show off something stronger from the film if you had it? This does not bode well to my mind.
