    Name another actor that was a star, got lost in Bolivia (and became a punchline), and then 20 years became a star again.

    Julio Esteban starred in the epic Argentinian drama called 'Flamenco boys'. Whilst on holiday in Bolivia was held for ransom by a drug cartel. He escaped and resurrected his career with an inspirational performance in the Argentinian hit 'The dog'.

    I had that attitude when I was a teen. And I am from NJ which is were I believe Keanu's character is actually standing when he makes that speech.

    And boy Dina Meyer is an underrated actress. She should have had bigger things come to her. I believe Johnny Mneumonic was her debut. She then did Starship Troopers. She could have been the female Keanu with a string of Sci Fi movies to her name.

    The closest I can think of is DDL moving to Ireland to become a cobbler for years before coming back and winning an Oscar.

    Keanu tried his best to channel Nichola Cage but ended up short.

    Unfortunately for Keanu in that movie his performance was overshadowed by the dolphin who played "jones."

    Keanu is either a home run or strike out, nothing in between. He's really good in stuff like The Matrix, Speed and the John Wick movies but then he'll put out a bunch of other crap in the meantime.
