the tournament

What in the Smokin’ Aces hell is going on here? A trailer has been released for the upcoming action flick, The Tournament. If you’ve never heard of it, don’t feel bad, neither had I. The cast is filled with recognizable faces like Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames, and Kelly Hu, yet this is my first time seeing or hearing anything about it. Find out more on The Tournament and see why it’s a rip off of every assassin movie produced in the past 10 years.

What ever happened to Ving Rhames in good acting roles? I miss his talent. I know he has it in him. The same goes for Ian Somerhalder. Is this what happens when you leave Lost? How many times have we seen the “dumb hick” assassin that always gets killed in the end? Isn’t his character a combination of Chris Pine and Kevin Durand in Smokin Aces? I’m happy to see Kelly Hu on the big screen again. She doesn’t get enough feature film work for my taste. I like seeing powerful women in strong roles that involve more than just being a pretty face.

Am I the only person who thinks this movie is a mix of Smokin Aces, Gamer, and The Condemned?

What’s your verdict on the first trailer for The Tournament?
