Storyline

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

Sawa: Who are you?
Oburi: You know me. Oburi
Sawa: I don't remember.
Oburi: Amp'll do that to you
Sawa: Yeah? What would you know about it?
Oburi: Amp? It's used by security forces for PTSD. Erases emotional trauma, makes you feel invincible.
Sawa: No what would you know about me being on it, is what I'm asking.

Extremely beautiful movie...plot was weak
20 October 2014 | by scarlatovSee all my reviews

If you like great ambiance, excellent directing and impeccable styling this is a movie that will please your eye...however the script and the plot do not merely match the level of the picture itself, and were disappointing to me. I would recommend it only in case you love the beauty of cinematography, light, perfect costumes and styling and deep underground ambient. If this is the case i can assure you that you will enjoy all the little details it has to give to the viewer. Choreography of fight scenes is cheap and messy, acting is adequate to the budget but could definitely be better. I would say - a decent movie that could be a great one, if it had a good script.
