Remember when we posted the international trailer for the upcoming assassin flick, The Tournament? The film is directed by Scott Mann and is a bonafide rip off of too many action films to mention. It stars Robert Carlyle, Kelly Hu, Ving Rhames, and Ian Somerhalder as a group of assassins caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse. The following photos show us that Somerhalder is a mediocre actor, gratuitous violence will never die, and Ving Rhames will continue to play the same character for the rest of his career.
I’m going to need Ian Somerhalder to turn it down a notch in this movie. I understand his character is supposed to be an over the top hick, but I don’t know if I can take it for an entire film. Hopefully he’ll die early (spoiler alert!) like he did on the first season of ABC’s Lost.
The more I see of Robert Carlyle’s “priest” character, the more suspicious I get. Something about him doesn’t sit right with me. After watching the trailer a few times, I’ve realized that he may not be as innocent as he looks. We’ll be able to find out the truth behind his collar when The Tournament hits theaters sometime in the uncertain future. The film has a 2009 release date set for the U.K., but not for the U.S. What’s up with that?!
