Generation Um... Reviews

May 3, 2013
Neither the film, nor the film within the film, hold our attention. Bummer, Keanu.

Reeves is front and center in a thinly sketched narrative anchored by little other than his presence ...

a bafflingly irreverent, meandering character study that resurrects Reeves' trademark inscrutable delivery, providing the actor with his most characteristic performance in years. But that's not quite enough to salvage the movie.
