A tournament is watched by dozens of wealthy men betting on which one of the 30 assassins will survive the next 24 hours "kill or die" and claim the USD10,000,000 prize. It takes place in an English town with plenty of CCTVs.
Nick Rowntree, one of the 3 writers of this film, has a cameo as 'Eddy Cusak,' the assassin in the Parking Garage.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to The Tournament.
At the end of the opening contest an announcement comes on the screen stating 'Middlesborough, Teeside' with a background scene of chemical works then there's a shot of blocks of flats. If the image (if watching on dvd) is frozen the Get Carter car park is recognisable in the background and the blocks of flats, now demolished, were near by. Robert Carlyle is then seen walking along the old High Street in Gateshead and at one point is thrown out of Ye Old Fleece pub.
German retail version is cut by ca. three minutes to secure a "Not under 18" rating. The version released in Austria/Switzerland is cut as well (the killing of the dog).
