The fights are spectacular - Tiger Chen doesn't need wires - the camera work is cool, the music sizzling.

A glorious romp of a martial-arts thwack-fest ...

Not a terribly good film, but it features some of the best martial-arts action I've seen on film in a while.

Keanu knows exactly what kind of movie this is, and doesn't pretend for a second that it's more important than it really is. It's a solid kick-ass martial arts movie, nothing more. I miss movies like this.

A modestly entertaining martial arts melodrama with impressively staged fight sequences that help compensate for a stale plot and some less-than-stellar acting.

An episode of "The Ultimate Fighter" has more variation and better lines, too.

Keanu Reeves's down-and-dirty and generally diverting directing debut.

Without Chen in the lead role, Man of Tai Chi could easily have been chop-socky awful.

Will anyone other than hardcore martial arts junkies pay good money to watch this stuff, which I admit, in smaller doses, holds a powerful visual/visceral fascination?

Like Reeves' wooden dialogue, it's fun despite not being very good.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

The movie is almost nonstop action, but the sequences build in such a way that they're suspenseful, and they never repeat themselves.

Say what you will about Keanu Reeves, he knows his strengths. So for his first directorial effort, he chose to do a martial-arts flick with a postmodern tinge.

Reeves gets plenty of mileage from this premise, using it to comment on globalization, cinema in the Internet age, and the moral cost of selling out.

Feet and fists move with the camera, and angles orient the combatants in space. Even Reeves-who has a stiff-legged, Frankenstein's-monster-like fighting style-ends up looking like a formidable physical presence.

Reeves sneers and chews scenery as the bad guy, but his star makes a less memorable impression.

Kung fu completists will want to check this off their lists, but even the most devoted Reeves fans will find it hard to sit through this mishmash.

This hackneyed misfit resuscitates every cliché of the grade-B '80s Hong Kong martial arts programmer, even the plot parts that were already imitating bad American TV.

Who knew that what Keanu Reeves really wanted was to play the villain in a movie Jean-Claude Van Damme made and remade half a dozen times? And direct it?
