Watch: Keanu Reeves & Tiger Chen Fight in New 'Man of Tai Chi' Trailer
Previously, on a couple of international trailers introduced us to Man of Tai Chi, the directorial debut from The Matrix star Keanu Reeves. The actor also plays the villain in this fight intensive thriller with some incredible choreography coming from Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). This new trailer looks more action-packed and exciting than 47 Ronin, the fantasy action thriller coming this Christmas, but some audiences might get them confused. While there's lots of special effects in the other movie, Man of Tai Chi gives the spotlight to the fight sequences, and that's just great. Watch now!
Here's the new trailer for Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi, originally from Apple:
And here's a new poster for the film, also coming from Apple:
Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, Speed) makes his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, written by Michael G. Cooney. Stuntman Tiger Hu Chen takes the lead as a young martial artist whose unparalleled Tai Chi skills land him in a highly lucrative underworld fight club. As the fights intensify, so does his will to survive. Reeves also plays the film's villain alongside a cast that also features Karen Mok (So Close), Simon Yam (Ip Man) and Iko Uwais (The Raid), all with fight choreography from Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). Radius-TWC releases the film this fall starting on November 1st. Interested?

After Matrix I loved anything Keanu so I am looking forward to this movie. Kind of weird to see him act as a villain. He seems like he a bit stiff at the part but the action with Tiger looks like its going to make this film.

Rumors suggest this movie fails in be marshal arts entertainment. However , I appreciate the fact that he has resurrected THE genre that hasn't been welcomed by Hollywood as much as should be .

what a dumb idea. it is a shame that it is rare to find a martial arts movie that is made by someone who understands the subject. I understand its entertainment and anything goes but people are stupid enough already about Asian culture and martial arts. if you are going to do a movie about a Tai Chi Chuan master then have him use the proper techniques. this shit looks like a Tony Jaa film with Matrix residue. Hey Hollywood! the martial arts tournament to the death idea should have ended after Enter the Dragon. its about as interesting as Franco Nero playing a ninja.

Seen this, thought the premise was pretty cool. Enjoyed the fighting.

Looks more like something from the mid-1990s, around the early Mortal Kombat era. I suppose martial arts fans might like it. Pity about the wire-fu.
