Trailer and 5-Minute Clip From Samuel L. Jackson's "Kite," Based on Popular Anime

Posted: January 5th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Trailer and 5-Minute Clip From Samuel L. JacksonSubmit Comment
While promoting "Django Unchained" a year ago, Samuel L Jackson revealed that he was planning to re-team with his "Snakes on a Plane" director David R Ellis for a live-action adaptation of a Japanese anime, called "Kite."

Two weeks later, Ellis passed away, but Jackson was determined to complete the project. Ralph Ziman stepped in to direct, and we now have the first trailer and a five minute clip from the movie. Check everything out below.

The story focuses on a young woman named Sawa who, after the murder of her parents, is taken off the streets by a crooked detective employing homeless children to do his dirty work. Trained to kill, she exacts street justice against the detective's chosen targets, until she is able to break free of the abusive and manipulative control he has over her.

One of my favorite animes ever, but this looks too cheaply done and miscast to do the original material justice. If Chloe Moretz wasn't already hit girl she would have been perfect for this. Probably would have been better with Luc Besson or Zach Snyder directing. This is right up their alley. This film just feels like a wasted opportunity and a cheap thrill for Sam Jackson.

If you've seen the No Doubt video for 'Ex-Girlfriend' it will be familiar. They used a scene from kite pretty much shot for shot from it.

What it doesn't seem like they're doing is following the anime as it was written.. Because it's about a detective who hires kids to kill pedophiles. The anime is pretty much a hentai. And Sam Jackson's character plows the little girl several times as he in in fact a pedophile himself.. Very disturbing as all of the male characters have 17 inch dongs.

Yeah.. So, not a direct adaptation.

Zzzzz...more of that "children who like to kill" crap we've seen for the last several years. Nothing like a culture that glorifies through its culture the murderous acts of children. Pretty much depravity and decadence at its worst when a society revels in tales such as this.

No thanks.

I used culture twice. Oops. Need to start paying more attention to what and how I post on this rabble-rubble dump website.

For the LOVE OF GOD! Once again Hollywood ruins a cult classic like Kite/Liberator.

They will never learn.

never heard of it...only anime i watched lately is valvrave the liberator and dbz abridged...with a little bit of attack on titan here and there. and of course the latest Naruto.

Sam jackson is pretty f*cking lacking when it comes to good taste - nowadays. but how can you blame him, pulp fiction ruined a ton of careers because they could never live up to that glory. well...thats it.
