‘Exposed’ Trailer: Detective Keanu Reeves Is On the Case
As far as contemporary Keanu Reeves films go, Exposed definitely doesn’t look like one of his better offerings. The actor reunites with Knock Knock co-star Ana de Armas for the upcoming thriller, which sees Reeves as a detective trying to solve his partner’s murder in a film that seems better-suited to Nicolas Cage’s current career choices.
I hope I’m wrong and that this trailer for Exposed is just a poor representation of the actual film. Reeves has made a few solid choices and seemingly found his niche in recent years, and while this film is sort of up his alley (his alley being movies that feel like they could have been released in 1999), it’s also not the kind of thing we were all hoping for post-John Wick.
Exposed was written and directed by Gee Malik Linton, who previously worked as a personal trainer on films like The Dark Knight. This isn’t the first time Reeves has appeared in a film for a first-timer transitioning from crew member to director — John Wick was helmed by former stunt coordinators, so Exposed could still deliver the goods…maybe… It’s hard to be optimistic if you’ve seen — and had your heart broken by — Knock Knock.
The new thriller also stars Mira Sorvino and has something to do with supernatural visions or something:
After witnessing a miracle, a young Latina woman (de Armas) experiences strange things as a police detective (Reeves) searches for the truth behind his partner’s death.
Exposed doesn’t have distribution in the U.S. yet, but it looks like the kind of thing that’ll wind up on VOD pretty quickly once it does. Don’t you (okay, I mean me) worry about Reeves: he’s got some great stuff on the way, including John Wick 2, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, and The Bad Batch from breakout director Ana Lily Amirpour.
