Action Movie Fanatix Review: Man of Tai Chi

I had high hopes for Man of Tai Chi. It seemed like a passion project for Keanu Reeves, who I have a lot of respect for despite him not being the greatest actor in the world. Unfortunately Man of Tai Chi ended up being yet another run of the mill “forced to fight” movie in the already crowded genre. The ever so slight alteration that is made is that the guy being “forced” to fight is actually starting to like it. A bit interesting… I’ll give it that but it never goes deep enough to make this tweak mean anything.

The movie starts with John Williams iconic theme song. I had forgotten just how incredible this song was. It’s right up there with the Star Wars theme, which was also written by John Williams. Both themes get the viewer into the right mood for this movie from the very first seconds they’re played.

I first want to say that it would have been an easy choice to throw Scott Adkins into the starring role. As much as I love Scott Adkins, I’m glad the producers went with a fresher face. Alain Moussi does a really great job for someone who has never really had a big starring role like this before. In 100% honesty, his acting does still need some work but he feels like he is close. I hope he is able to stick around the action movie scene for a while. We all know how badly the genre needs some new heroes.
