        It's One-Armed Swordsman - Amputee + High Plains Drifter - Clint Eastwood + that scene in the Last Samurai with the ninjas + the Immortals from 300 - acting, from what I can tell.
        I understand this part, but not the part where this is not impressive.

          Since when did Geoffry Rush sell his soul for a paycheck?

            The Banger Sisters (2002)

            or perhaps

            Mystery Men (1999)

              Oh hey, a movie about an assassin who kills a ton of people and then decides what he is doing is bad. Then he must battle the people he was doing assassinations for. What a novel movie idea.

              The setting, although pretty cool, does not save this tired old premise. Can we once get a movie with an assassin who is an antihero? This always happens. The dude leaves a huge trail of bodies behind him and now, all of the sudden, he decides that he's not going to be "evil" anymore.

              I'll watch it, but I'm going to complain about it, a lot.

                    This is precisely why the movie Wanted sucked so hard. Based on a truly original story. Shoehorned into the same old format.

                    Still, this movie looks OK visually. I'll probably end up hiring it when it becomes available as a weekly...

                        Yeah, I saw this movie once where this actual, no-kidding Nazi officer suddenly decides in the middle of WWII that he's on the wrong side and somebody has to stop Hitler, so he hatches an elaborate plan to blow Hitler and his top staff up in a bunker where they're meeting.
                        It was so completely contrived and unbelievable that nothing could save it from its flawed premise (not even Xenu.)

                          The problem with this kind of movie is they are gonna make A movie money for B movie writing,effects,acting,stunts... I HATE this path film has taken.

                          "Where do I go for that?"

                          I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

                          I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

                            Oh yeah. I also saw this one movie where this short white guy is accepted into a group of samurai renegades who at that time wouldn't think twice to kill some honky.

                            Then he fights off ninjas and actually participates in a battle despite having maybe two months of practice with a sword. It was even worse when my friends thought it was "original" and "inspiring".

                              Yeh, well I saw this movie once, where Leonardo De Caprio was on this big boat, and it sank.
