The Tournament product reviews

Every seven years, thirty of the world's most deadly assassins face off against one another for an outrageous cash prize. There's only one rule: kill or die.

As dozens of wealthy gamblers watch via closed-circuit TV, a city is hijacked and overrun by brutal killers - all aiming to be the last one standing.

But some have secrets to hide, some have scores to settle... for some, it's a battle to find the truth.

If you like gratuitous violence, psychotic murderers, athletic lunatics toting big guns, and a lot of blood... then this is one movie you really don't want to miss. If, however, you prefer movies with tight plots, plenty of drama and tension, and special effects that appear as real as 'real' then you may be forgiven for overlooking this one.

It certainly has a lot going for it... some familiar stars, some excellent action scenes, baddies you can hate, a 'goodie' who is most assuredly not one of the baddies, but isn't a pure soul either, and a hefty dose of 'got what you deserved' at the end... despite that, it was highly predictable in places which took a little of the 'shine' off it.

The thing that got me the most about it was that in today's world, where CCTV is all too common and those with a surplus of power, a surplus of money, a shortage of morals and a shortage of 'new experiences' could easily highjack a small town, isolate it and use it for their own playground. "Yeah right!" you say... but then, we have already seen what is possible for those with the will and the means to power can do.

Overall, though I enjoyed it, I wouldn't be watching it all too often. It sounded like it could have been a real winner... and it certainly had the potential... but something was a little less than sparkling about the performances. The biggest highlight for me was the acrobatic performances of a french assassin, who spent almost the entire movie showing what can be done by a strong practictioner of parkour - the art of travelling a non-standard route with style and efficiency of motion.

Product reviews for listing 149: Big Fish
Directed by Tim Burton

Product image for Big FishThe story revolves around a dying father and his son, who is trying to learn more about his dad by piecing together the stories he has gathered over the years.

The son winds up re-creating his father's elusive life in a series of legends and myths inspired by the few facts he knows.

Through these tales, and commentary from some of the people who shared his father's life, the son begins to understand his father's great feats... and his great failings.
