A cult classic, by Yasuomi Umetsu, renowned for its stylistically graphic depictions of violent action and sensuality, concerns a young woman named Sawa who, after the murder of her parents, is taken off the streets by a crooked, Svengali-like 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.

Kite stars Samuel L. Jackson as Karl Aker, India Eisley as Sawa, Callan McAuliffe as Oburi, Russel Savadier as Old Boy, Jaco Muller as Kratsov, Liam J. Stratton as Sawa's Father and Keci Eatock as Young Sawa. The movie hits DirecTV on August 28th, and VOD and theatres on October 10th.

If Sam is involved, there will be a lot of yelling and screaming.

This is based on a hentai btw.

I liked the anime this was based on.

@TheDudeRusty- I actually don't think that is consider a hentai since it only had two short sex scenes.

@ SpiderFraud

Well it's less like an Anime adaptation and more like a highly messed up Hentai that got censored and turned into an Anime thats getting adapted into a movie.

1. This movie looks like shit.

2. The original was a hentai that depicted graphic rape...not sex...including Sam L.'s character raping the shit out of Sawa.

3. We can already tell that all the characters are WAY off...attitude wise and how they carry themselves.

and last but not least...

4. In case you didn't hear us the first time...this movie looks like shit.

WE HAVE SPOKEN!
