John Connor [Celluloid 06.17.15] Australia action cult thriller



Did you know that Brian Trenchard-Smith's classic Ozploitation film, Turkey Shoot, has been remade into a modern action film starring Dominic Purcell (Killer Elite, Prison Break), Viva Bianca (Spartacus) and Robert Taylor? Me neither.

Packed with mayhem, stunts, and special effects, Elimination Game (still Turkey Shoot in some parts of the world) is said to be "a warped reflection of the global fascination with increasingly brutal reality-television competition game shows."


Synopsis:
In the wake of a shocking civilian massacre in a foreign war zone, disgraced Navy SEAL Rick Tyler is sentenced to rot in a maximum security military prison until he is offered the opportunity to put his life on the line to win his freedom. A one-man force of nature, Tyler will have to take-on and take-down some of the world's most ruthless killers in some of the world's most brutal locations to win the game, obtain his freedom and find out why he was set up. The question is, can he accomplish all of this before Game On is Game Over?


Elimination Game hits theatres and VOD June 26, 2015.



Recommended Release: Turkey Shoot (aka. Escape 2000)

I didn't see one thing different in the trailer, from the movie I just finished watching. Turkey Shoot. Which I will put my thumbs up to, despite all the bad reviews. I think some people expect way too much out of an action film. The nitpickers that pan a film because a guys watch didn't match the time on the town hall clock, or the film is supposed to be played out in Johannesburg, and it's obviously shot in South Dakota 'cuz I can see where I used to live. Well millions of other people didn't care and watched and enjoyed the film. Now in those peoples defense, I can see getting nit-picky about shows that are meant to mirror reality. But 75% of these action movies these days have no real basis in reality anyway. They're just there to entertain, if you would just allow yourselves the chance to find that out. Wow, first comment ever and it's looking like a rant, but it's not really.
