    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.

    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.
