Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. Are any of you familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”? Well, I am, so it shall be the focal topic of discussion this week.

Now, for anyone familiar with this film’s title, they will realize that this is a remake of the 1951 sci-fi film of the same name; and which is now an established classic. Keanu Reeves portrays the character, “Klaatu”, who is an alien lifeform with human-like appearance and has journeyed to earth with his gigantic robot comrade. “Klaatu” states that his purpose for coming is to “save the Earth”. Little is known about what he means, until it is almost too late.

Storyline: “Dr. Helen Benson is summoned to a military facility with several other scientists when an alien spacecraft of sorts arrives in New York City. Aboard is a human-like alien and a giant robot of immense size and power. The alien identifies himself as Klaatu and says he has come to save the Earth. The US military and political authorities see him as a threat however and decide to use so-called intensive interrogation techniques on him but Dr. Benson decides to facilitate his escape. When she learns exactly what he means when he says he is there to save the Earth, she tries to convince him to change his intentions.” Written by garykmcd on imdb.com

The Day The Earth Stood Still” was comprised of an All-Star cast. And such celebrated persons included Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, John Hamm, and Jaden Smith, etc. What is rather notable is that this film encompassed quite an eclectic collection of actors which seems to have made it work. In addition, Keanu Reeves’ portrayal of “Klaatu” was effortless and credible; as he clearly demonstrated the character’s obvious adamant and single-minded intent to “save the Earth” from the human race.

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/day_the_earth_stood_still/reviews/

“A highly entertaining and gripping sci-fi thriller with brains.” Written by Avi Offer of the NYC Movie Guru located at: http://www.nycmovieguru.com/dec12th.html#daytheearthstoodstill

In a way, it appeared that it took Keanu’s, “Klaatu”, some time before he made his final decision of what he should do. To give this character credit, he asked sincere questions of others regarding their perspectives about his own decision to “save the Earth”, and he also put in a great deal of pensive thought on the subject. Although, if anyone was being overly emotional about any of “Klaatu’s”attitude and behavioral conduct, he was quite detached concerning such emotional displays from human beings; including entreaties and appeals for mercy.

I will admit that Keanu’s, “Klaatu” , did keep me in suspense as to what his final decision would be. So, in a way this film did possess some edge-of-one’s seat suspense. Of course, I always love viewing films within my Muse, Keanu Reeves’, impressive repertoire. I must say that Keanu’s male beauty in this film could be described as arrestingly handsome. And in my opinion, I thought that “The Day The Earth Stood Still” was an engaging sci-fi film overall.
