In honour of Roland Emmerich’s latest film Anonymous, which claims Shakespeare didn’t write his plays, BFF brings you the Top 10 list of films which have messed with history over the years. Whether it’s romanticising a horrible tale for the purposes of not making children cry, or casting Johnny Depp as an English detective, this list explores the ten films which over the years have taken History and punched it repeatedly in the face. WARNING: this article contains spoilers and several references to Mel Gibson.
Ninja Assassin is an abysmal car crash of a movie, not even redeemed by its semi-slick and overly-repetitious fight scenes. Jeong Ji-hoon, AKA Rain, gurns and grunts his way through this daft revenge fantasy as Raizo, a trained-from-childhood ninja who becomes disillusioned with his taskmasters’ shady dealings and harsh discipline. The Wachowski brothers once more prove themselves as a laughing stock, a one-trick-pony whose sell by date expired at the precise moment the first Matrix film ended. With any luck, this dreck will be the last we see of ’em, and good riddance.
