In “The Tournament”, Robert Carlyle plays a small-town priest who gets unwittingly dragged into a bloody tournament taking place covertly in his town. Okay, it’s not all that covert, there are guys running around with sniper rifles and bazookas trying to off each other. Actually, it’s pretty obvious, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but there you have it. Here’s a clip from Scott Mann’s actioner “The Tournament”, featuring Carlyle’s character as he finds himself in the crosshairs of some killer types.
Every seven 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.
Starring Ian Somerhalder, Ving Rhames, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Hu, Scott Adkins, Liam Cunningham, John Lynch, Andy Nyman, Craig Conway, Rachel Grant, and directed by Scott Mann.
