Definitely one of the better Keanu Reeves films . And there is a considerable range from dreadful to excellent in his history. And never mind the 'revenge for the dog' summary some critics have used. That's merely what Hitchcock would have called a MacGuffin - the telegram in "North by Northwest", for instance is one of Hitchock's best in that is one of the most obvious and yet one that we do not connect to the plot until well into the film.Here, the plot is tight and with enough unexpected twists to keep us near the edge of our seats. Reeves' performance is a=even better than i"The Matrix" or "Speed". This is an action movie to enjoy time and again, and well worth adding to anyone's film collection.
