The Tournament

2

Competing to be the world's best assassin is no easy feat...

The Tournament review

The contest in quest ion is a once-a-year event between the world’s greatest assassins, with dozens of scurrilous businessmen betting on the outcome.

Starting as it means to go on with a scene in a slaughterhouse, Scott Mann’s grim, lazy mish-mash of Battle Royale and Bloodsport sluices through puddles of gore, sick and offal without a whiff of irony.

Moments of grisly inspiration include the smash-’em-up between an 18-wheeler wielding Ving Rhames and a boozy priest in a double-decker bus, but mostly it’s just mindless mayhem for automatic weapon fetishists.
