  • The difference is that 300 was credible. Keanu Reeves = brutal

  • I admire the balls on Hollywood making a movie like that with Keanu. It's like they're saying we're going to make a plate of doo doo and you will eat it and like it.

    For sure. I would like to actually have a polite conversation with anyone, anyone about to talk themselves in to paying money to see that in a theater just for entertainment purposes and so I can upload my recording to youtube.

  • Why the Keanu hate? The guy has great respect for the martial arts and asian cinema, and he's 1/2 Japanese also. Movie looks cool to me.

    The Canadian born in Beirut is not 1/2 Asian. However Wikapedia quotes him as saying he grew up around Chinese furniture.

  • Saw it.

    Don't ask why.... well ok I'll tell you. Was bored, was there, had time to kill, and it was the only thing remotely interesting starting like right then.

    Had samurai stuff, fantasy stuff, monsters, even some pirate stuff. Eh. Was killing time, even then I was looking forward to the ending so I could go.
