Much of the production crew is also Bulgarian which, I imagine, helps create jobs in the small Balkan country. Again, I’m good with that. The plot - A group of sadistic gamblers makes wagers on 30 of the world's most deadly assassins who band against one another in a battle royal. A group of unlikely friends get together for an epic trading card tournament only to have a beautiful outsider turn everything on its head. This trait could be attributed to the fact that they have such great martial artists doing the stunt-work, but either way, I was very happy about that.
Nowhere near the spectacular chase sequence in Casino Royale or the self made movies that can be seen on you tube. for example there was a big fight scene in a nightclub. With this plot gimmick, it should have been more fun than it is. The premise is very interesting even if flawed; every seven years somewhere in the planet(usually in a random city) a tournament between the world's deadliest assassins takes place. The Final Four semifinal matchups in the Review-Journal’s What If Tournament appear to be competitive on paper. If your fetish is watching human bodies exploding and splashing all over the place, this one is for you, otherwise, NOT. | The final climactic scene (sic) where Rhames..mortally wounded..hams his way excruciatingly through dialogue possibly written by the proverbial 100 chimps with typewriters as he confronts the killer of his wife (who cares) is more than risible. Unrealistic compared to our own world, but if you want realism - look out your window. There are only three other reviews here so far: two give this 10 (Err... two different named reviewers, identical reviews, duplicate memo to PR team please....idiots) and the other 1 so let's assume some will love this and others will hate it. THE TOURNAMENT makes its mark by delivering a knockout punch with over the top action and enough plot twists to keep the viewer interested. Actually I expected it to be a pleasant DTV title with a couple of cool actors. If you love the fantasy genre, this is the season for you! If it sounds like a cocktail of Battle Royale mixed with Death Race and a dash of Smokin’ Aces, that’s exactly what the movie feels like. The Tournament is a stupid movie.There is a basic idea- ripped off from movies like mean guns and battle royale- but nothing is ever done with it. Take away the 'action' and choreography..oh and the buckets of blood gore fest on view and you are left with a poorly acted, poorly scripted mish mash of a film that offers no character development whatsoever. The tournament could have been amazing,instead it is a forgettable movie with a few more or less known actors that doesn't deliver what it promised. The twists and turns were good too, and I didn't manage to work out what really happ. Various assassins were pulling out guns, shotguns , and machine guns.. (how many nightclub doormen would allow you entry carrying these, I am surprised a rocket launcher was not used as well) the effects and fight scenes are good considering they are over the top, there is a lot of gore also for those of you that love a gorefest. Copyright © Fandango. Every seven years in an unsuspecting town, The Tournament takes place. If I was new to the genre then maybe I could have enjoyed it more. I can't believe anyone liked this movie. It takes place in an English town with plenty of CCTVs. It wasn't at all what I expected it to be. most ambitious of all in this genre... and it works, Interesting premise but not nearly as spectacular as it could be, Good effects but no plot *** WARNING Spoilers included*******, Full of action, blood and violence but not very good, Pretty Disgusting, Pretty Implausible, Pretty Ugly, Violent, predictable and pretentious but may entertain certain individuals, wow! I will watch it again pretty soon. High energy hokum that goes nowhere but does it at high speed. I really liked Ascham's character, in fact I wanted to read more books featuring him! Plot develops naturally, most people will guess what is coming, but I see no one blaming Matrix for having an easy plot. the priest, father mcavory, that accidentally gets drawn into the game is awesome. This is another example of how authors misuse their creative freedom to tarnish a great historical figure's image in the name of fiction. I've never walked out of a film, or switched it off half way through, but this is the most tempted I have ever been. most ambitious of all in this genre... and it works, Interesting premise but not nearly as spectacular as it could be, Good effects but no plot *** WARNING Spoilers included*******, Full of action, blood and violence but not very good, Pretty Disgusting, Pretty Implausible, Pretty Ugly, Violent, predictable and pretentious but may entertain certain individuals, wow! The Tournament by Matthew Reilly Published 2015(US), Gallery Stars: ★★★★☆ Review also posted at: Slapdash & Sundry Matthew Reilly is really good at thrillers.
Mike is a tough hitman, who makes his hits look like accidents or suicide. Each assassin gets an implant and a locating device so they can find each other. I really enjoyed the historical crime aspect of this novel. enough said, go have fun watching this movie. Jack Conrad is awaiting the death penalty in a corrupt Central American prison. I know a lot of people are going to consider this one of Matthew Reilly's weaker books, but I think it's one of his strongest. I admit it, It breaks my heart to give Rielly two stars. A sweeping historical masterpiece full of spine chilling suspense and sinister secrets! Let us know what’s wrong with this preview of, Published I was expecting a mediocre executed movie but it turned out to be awesome from the first minute in. ), A very different book for Matt Reilly, more in the vein of The Name of the Rose. I really felt a spectator throughout the whole story and I wasn't bored which I easily am! Because this book has very few fight scenes compared to Matt Reilly's previous books, all the faults which were but minor details in his other books became gaping chasms in this one. Reilly creates an imaginary world filled with richness, colour and vitality, centring on a chess tournament held in the realm of Constantinople, and believe me, I saw the word ‘chess’ in the blurb and thought instant snooze-fest: how wrong I was…. enough said, go have fun watching this movie.
