Movie Review: Keanu

Movie Review: Keanu
Opening date: April 29, 2016 Score: 4/5 What does George Michael, a kitten and a violent street gang all have in common? Well nothing really, except they all somehow coexist in the new movie, Keanu starring everyone’s favorite comedic duo, Key & Peele. After five amazing seasons of the Key & Peele Show , Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are heading to the big screen in their first starring role as a duo.
