(at around 1h 12 mins) When Joshua follow Lai Lai Zhen by a oil container he hits the passenger bus several times which Lai Lai Zhen was in and father MacAvoy was driving. But we cant see any excitement among the passenger though so many shooting took place. Some passengers were sleeping even after Joshua hits the bus several times. See more »
Look at you, Joshua! You're a warrior, gladiator. Men like you don't die in your beds, they fall on the field. They give the crowd a glorious death.

Believe me, Middlesborough never looked better....
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. I'll try to review it....
Plot: pretty easy sell, every seven years the top assassins hold the tournament; they kill each other until the last survivor wins it all; all organized, tracked, and betted on by billionaires, of course.
The whole thing is kind of like no limit hold'em.... but they can't all dodge bullets, baby. Think Tekken and you're not in the right area, it is better than Uwe Boll and that ilk.
Not quite lineage as Guy Ritchie (Obviously) but only needing Jason Stratham this is exactly what is says on the box: an out and out kill or be killed cartoonish film.
Filming is good, nothing too dark or menacing but just nice.
It's not Battle Royale but if action is your thing and you liked Death Race 2000, Shoot Em'Up or Wanted then you'll be happy enough.
Any gripes about morality are irrelevant here, this is in a moral vacuum, and so are plot holes, logic, or how heads explode like watermelons, this is either your type of film or you should really it avoid totally.
Yep, it's violent - limbs fly, people die in well, imaginative ways - but it is not horror.
It's all well put together, nicely cast, and creates enough interest; better than just hunt or be hunted there is a real plot and even character development...
Oh and great to choose Middlesborough, seriously one of the ugliest, most desolate pile of concrete crap evaar...ha ha....shooting it up the kyber pass can only improve it....
This is a movie to watch with mates and wince and cheer to....
