When the adorable kitten of an L.A. crime kingpin unexpectedly enters the life of two cousins, they will have to go through tough gangs, pitiless hit-men, and ruthless drug dealers who all claim him, to get him back. How hard can it be?
This movie advertised several old Warner Brothers films. The list is as follows. New Jack City (1991), The Matrix (1999), Se7en (1995), Beetlejuice (1988), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), Point Break (1991), The Shining (1980), Boogie Nights (1997), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985). Keanu was a joint production between New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers. New Line Cinema used to be the house that Freddy built, before it was sold by Robert Shaye.
Wordness to the turdness.
In some early scenes where Keanu is running, the running cat is obviously older and larger than the kitten seen during the rest of the film.
In the opening the Warner Brothers logo flies apart and becomes the New Line Cinema logo which then starts to glow like the sun. All this to ominous background music.
