If you always wanted there to be a Film with songs by George Michael and Future, then this is the one that suits you.
Keanu engages from the very beginning, where two obscure figures skillfully launch a whole medicine operation in an ancient church.
And it begins. After completing their namesake sketch Comedy Show, Keegan-MIchael Key and Jordan Peele begin their first film together. Written by Peele and with the two, Keanu follows Rell (Peele) who has just suffered a big break. And on the edge of a downward spiral, he discovers a kitten at his door. This Kitten is Keanu. Immediately falling in love–like everyone else with a kitten-fills the void left by his Ex-girlfriend. This is pretty much the first and last time her separation is mentioned throughout the Film.
In a few days, Keanu will be robbed. Rell and his Cousin Clarence (Key) venture into the depths of an underground medicine ring and infiltrate a gang called Blips (a combination of Bloods and Crips). They also claim to be medicine barons, forcing them to speak more aggressively and “bandit”, fearing that their “whitewashed personalities” will catch them immediately.
There are some very funny parts in this Movie. Of course, many jokes go too long, while others flop awkward, but with Key and Peele, it’s the awkwardness that makes them funny.
Even if both don’t make you laugh, you can’t stop watching them try to be funny. You might even surprise yourself several times by smiling.
Some Details about the Plot are unclear, but nothing too frustrating. From the first Scenes, there are a Handful of Holes in the Logic of this Film. One main reason is: how would an experienced Bandit not be able to erase two obvious dummy? But this is a comedy that prides itself on silliness, so we shouldn’t worry too much about it.
As with any good comedy, there are more hits than misses. It falls short of the mark of being the next 21 Jump Street. It’s consistent, but it’s never revolutionary. With less formal rhythms, it could have been exactly that. Although I am convinced that the formula is what you want, take references from old Buddy action movies from yesterday.
Also, there is a subtle Bill & Ted reference that gives extra points from me.
For those of you who are Fans of Key & Peeles Show, you will enjoy the humor. But do not be afraid, this is not just an elongated sketch. It’s a solid action comedy, but with a familiar brand Of humor. As for others, you can easily be surprised. You might leave the theater and feel like you’ve accidentally stumbled into an Arcane universe that you didn’t know existed until now. But the feeling of the film is familiar enough that you still have fun. I guess their Plan was put in place.
