KITE

I stumbled across this in the On Demand list.  Never heard of it.  Gave it a try because it stars Samuel Jackson, though that’s hardly a guarantee of quality.  My first thought was that these folks have been watching lots of Luc Besson, especially District B13. I mean, the teenage female assassin orphaned by criminals and out for revenge has got Besson all over it. (I later learned it’s based on an erotic anime.) There’s decent post-financial-holocaust world building and the graffiti-laden locations in Johannesburg are depressingly effective in telegraphing civilization in collapse.  Graphic violence and Besson fans will feel they’ve seen it before, but it offers an entertaining 90 minutes.
