Enter The Dragon (1973)

On tonight's show, Keanu Reeves talks about making his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, a trilingual martial arts film starring Keanu himself and his friend Tiger Chen, the fight choreographer for The Matrix trilogy. Man of Tai Chi is loosely based on Tiger's own life; he plays the sole student of a dying fighting style called Ling Kong Tai Chi, who's swept into the underground fighting world by an unscrupulous business man played by Keanu. Not up on your kung fu flicks? Check out five must-see martial arts films in our gallery above to get up to speed.

And, of course, make sure to tune in to the show November 13 at 7 p.m. on CBC to catch George's interview with Keanu and Tiger.
