Yes, yes they both did. And by now you know that Avatar looks pretty cool (at least until Delgo and Smurfette give birth to Robert Davi…) but underwhelmed due to advance hype. And The Wolfman, which had no real hype, also looks pretty cool (probably because expectations were non-existent).
Which brings us to The Tournament. Check it out.
Right now you’re either thinking “damn, that looks like a pretty sweet action flick” or “damn, Hunter’s an idiot.” Or both I suppose… But come on, that trailer had some pretty sweet action didn’t it? And it comes in different flavors too like hand-to-hand combat, gunplay, vehicular mayhem, and even a little bit of parkour… sometimes all at once! And that cast may not consist of marquee names, but there’s some solidly entertaining actors here including Ving Rhames, Robert Carlyle, the uber-hot Kelly Hu, and uber martial artist (and Robert Fure man-crush) Scott Adkins.
The official synopsis (which is fairly evident in the trailer) is as follows:
Every 7 years in an unsuspecting town, The Tournament takes place. A battle royale between 30 of the world’s deadliest assassins. The last man standing receiving the $10,000,000 cash prize and the title of Worlds No 1 (which itself carries the legendary million dollar a bullet price tag). The Tournament is set up by a group of sick high stake billionaires who watch the mayhem unfold via CCTV and bet on its outcome.”
What do you think? Admit it, this looks like fun right?
