“Siberia” finds Keanu Reeves taking a trip without his wife to conduct a diamond deal in Russia. When the business deal gets botched, Reeves goes all John Wick. His wife is alive in this one, plus she’s Molly Ringwald. So, the John Wick comparisons end there. For nearly two hours, the film slowly moves through this hunt and foreign robbery scenarios that ultimately end up doing nothing. Still, that’s overlooking what kills the film.
Keanu Reeves is human Xanax and the film moves at a purposefully slow pace. Putting Reeves in the lead of a movie that can’t help but slow down with each reel change is so bad. Honestly, I’m torn. The movie is bad, but Reeves works well in the lead. Give it a stream and tell me what you think.
