The Whole Truth

Not another Keanu Reeves movie...

The good news is that finally a movie is being released in Japan before the rest of the world. The bad news is that it’s a great big Keanu Reeves turkey. He plays a hotshot lawyer (and if you buy that I’ve got some nice oceanfront property in Arizona I want to show you) charged with defending a 17-year-old kid who has admitted to killing his father (and Jim Belushi, too!).

Also Renee Zellweger, nearly unrecognizable from her Bridget Jones/Chicago days. Far as I can tell, the aim was to make the most derivative, boring courtroom drama possible. Succeeds. Big twist ending you can see coming an hour away.

Japanese Title: Sajo no Hotei (94 min.)
