Never Underestimate a Girl with Nothing to Lose. Based on the groundbreaking, cult classic anime, KITE tells the story of Sawa (India Eisley,"The Secret Life of the American Teenager," Underworld: Awakening), a young woman living in a corrupt society where crime and gangs terrorize the streets. When Sawa's mother and policeman father are found victims of a grisly double homicide, she begins a ruthless pursuit for the man who murdered them. With the help of her father's ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers, Django Unchained), and a mysterious friend from her past (Callan McAuliffe, The Great Gatsby, I Am Number Four), she becomes a merciless teen assassin, blasting her way through the dark world of human trafficking only to uncover a devastating truth. Written by Anchor Bay Entertainment

In no way the worst movie ever
25 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To say this is the worst movie ever is a stretch. To say its one of the 10 worst movies ever is more accurate. From beginning to end this movie is horrible. Generic plot, horrendous acting, poor character development, poor transitions, etc. The sub plots do little to carry the movie along as well. The thread that ties in the sub plots throughout the film can be cut with a crumpled up piece of toilet tissue. Everything that makes a movie bad, this film has it. Even the presence of powerhouse Samuel L. couldn't elevate this atrocity from theatrical hell. I wish I could un-watch this mistake of a movie. I feel obligated to petition legislators to make a law for it to be illegal for any and all production of this crap to continue.......
