Keanu Reeves in “The Brotherhood of Justice”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello! Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp. Are any of you familiar with the varied array of films which Keanu Reeves has starred in? I pose this query because there is one film in particular I wish to discuss entitled, “The Brotherhood of Justice”.

The Brotherhood of Justice” was a made-for-television 1980’s film, whose purpose was to become a pilot for a television series. Unfortunately, the pilot idea was rejected, so it remained one of the films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire. As it happens, this so-called rejection became a blessing in disguise for Keanu Reeves; as he has always been a movie star, for as long as this lady can remember.

Keanu Reeves portrayed the character, “Derek” in this film. “Derek” is Mr. Popular and Captain of the football team (not to mention, the star quarterback), and he has a popular troupe or clique of male friends who decide to form this league in order to help combat vandalism and other illegal acts within their school and neighboring community. They felt compelled to form “The Brotherhood of Justice” ( an underground vigilante group) in response to a call for help (during a school assembly event) from their own principal, “Bob Grootemat” (portrayed by Joe Spano).

Unfortunately, things spiral out of control, and these former good guys and role models become members of just another gang. When “Derek” realizes that he can’t stop what is happening, he turns himself and his friends into law enforcement. In a way, it is sad that their originally good intentions eventually transformed into bad or nefarious intentions. Please feel free to read a portion of the Movie Review below:

“…I like Keanu Reeves. He has a certain “everyman” quality. I also liked the way the film depicted the contrast of rich kids and the working class ones. Of course in this case, it was based on a true story. The dialogue was fine. There were several good scenes between two people at a time. Two brothers, the cop and the principal, coworkers, best friends, etc. I love good dialogue. Not a bad film at all. Interesting concept based on truth.” This 7-Star Movie Review is by an author with the username, dansview, from: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090775/reviews.

I found it to be an entertaining film, and I could not help, but appreciate how attractive Keanu Reeves looked in his preppie-type clothing as the main character, “Derek”. It was just simply a great look for him during the 1980’s. And the 1980’s, from my perspective, was a wonderful time for growing up. Special thanks go out to Keanu Reeves for helping to make the 1980’s so memorable for me, and for being so kind. And I certainly thank GOD so much for everything He has done for me!

Now, I am Miss TaffeytheChamp, creator of this Blog, and I am also Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves inspired my creation of the protagonist (main character), Evian Magi; as he is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of him.
