Movie Mezzanine

While Reeves exhibits natural talent behind the camera, his debut carries an austere coldness that shuts out any semblance of diverting pleasure.

For anybody who can get into martial arts and doesn't demand a film that will break new ground the way, say, "The Raid: Redemption" did a couple of years ago, this is a rousing show.

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

[An] ambitious but generic martial-arts movie.

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

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?

Slant Magazine

The film ultimately doesn't live up to this early potential, as Keanu Reeves loses his way in the third act with too many false climaxes.

Screenwize

A tediously repetitive film desperately looking for some heart and soul. Reeves is the Man of Concrete, grey and predictable behind the camera and an impassive mask of grunts in front of it. Definitely no excellent adventure.

Reeves is not yet the bridge between east and west moviemaking he's aspiring to be, but considering this is his first time directing a feature, the result is only half-bad.

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.

After all is said and done, after we've gone through the rote paces in an assembly line fashion, we're left with a mildly enjoyable if completely forgettable martial arts film.

Impressive fight choreography is the highlight of this otherwise muddled, bilingual directorial debut from Keanu Reeves.

Man Of Tai Chi nevertheless feels like Reeves made exactly the movie he set out to make, assuming he didn't set out to create a movie that was 'good.'

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

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.

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?

Keanu Reeves makes his directorial debut in a cartoonish kung fu movie with splashy fight scenes and an underdeveloped wit.

Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi is Mortal Kombat with a touch of Zen

An adequate and ambitious effort from a first-time director who could have enhanced his on-screen philosophical arguments with a bit more depth and done with a touch less of the admittedly riveting man-to-man melee.
