Book Review – Keanu Reeves: Most Triumphant by Alex Pappademas

As a long-time fan of Keanu Reeves I wanted to like this book so much! I’m always interested in learning a little bit more about the behind the scenes reality of my favorite movies and actors. Unfortunately Keanu Reeves: Most Triumphant just didn’t deliver for me.

The author seems to have made a valiant attempt to give some deeper meaning to the film and characters Keanu Reeves has helped bring to life, but it varies between long recaps of the films intertwined with chaotic breaks to mention what was happening in society and with costars at the same time. The effect doesn’t tie it all together, but rather just feels disjointed and unfocused. I don’t feel I walked away from this book with any greater understanding of Keanu Reeves nor did I feel any “profound lessons” were revealed. 

I appreciate the chance to read and review this book and wish I could have given it a higher review, but I was left unsatisfied.
