Man of Tai Chi(2013)

Take a trip into the mind of Keanu Reeves, where in a world of vacant expressions, the Asian version of Keanu Reeves must muster his conviction, fight some people, and finally confront Keanu Reeves, Dark Lord of Woe.

Yeah, this is weird movie. But it's also the exact movie you would expect Keanu Reeves to make (this is his directorial debut, by the way) based on his public persona. The story is a complete write off, as is most of the acting, but there's genuine amusement to be gleaned by the funky way the movie is put together. And in Keanu's own head-scratching performance as the underground-fighting king pin bad guy. Some slick fight choreography elevates the experience in the way slick fight choreography often does. But is it enough? Not quite.
