Remember how hot he was as the boy toy in Dangerous Liaisons?
Remember how adorable Keanu was in Bill & Ted’s Big Adventure?
Remember him in that wet suit in Point Break?
Remember him dressed up in Old London style clothing in Dracula?
Remember how he used his wits to save all of those people on the bus in Speed?
Remember how cool he was as the guy with dangerous data in his head in Johnny Mnemonic?
Remember how he was tempted and RESISTED THE DEVIL in The Devil’s Advocate?
Remember how he was a hero in the futuristic thriller, The Matrix and its sequels?
Remember how badass he was and how many people he wasted in John Wick and its sequel?
Remember how creepy he was as the cult leader in The Bad Batch?
Most of the time Keanu Reeves is looking effin hot and into some kind of action, like in bed with Uma Thurman, time traveling with his buddy, out in the surf on his board, tending his wife and getting bitten by a vampire, saving lives on an out-of-control bus, racing from place to place to get data out of his head before it kills him, being tempted by the Devil Himself, forced to be a hero trying to save the world from the machines that have enslaved humans, being a supernatural detective trying to solve a supernatural crime, being a hitman that kills, kills, and kills some more, or being a demented cult leader running a futuristic wasteland town.
In just about every film Keanu Reeves is drop-dead gorgeous just by virtue of his looks, but the question I ask, in any of them is he a sexual being? Probably in Dangerous Liaisons, way back in 1988. He had a few obligatory sex scenes here and there in a few of the others. Siberia (2018) is different.
In Siberia he plays diamond dealer, Lucas Hill, who hobnobs with dangerous international criminals in the process. Set in Russia, Keanu is way more subdued than he was as John Wick. The plot is slow, but that is a good thing in that he can actually develop his character — beyond that of a heroic action figure – into that of a sexual being. Lucas Hill is a character that is as driven by his eroticism as he is driven by diamond dealing. Of course, being in the criminal underworld, there is going to be a need to take care of business with weapons, but in Siberia, it is secondary to the business and the eroticism.
Filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia and in Winnipeg, Ontario, Canada, Siberia not a great movie overall, but it is great in that it shows Keanu outside of his usual pretty boy, killer, action figure plastic mold.
