It’s tough being an action hero; you’ve always got a target on your back. That is basically the premise of Everybody Wants to Kill Bruce, which assembles footage from over two dozen movies to create a ten-minute all-star reel in which Bruce Willis flees from danger at every turn. This cut doesn’t limit itself to footage from Bruce Willis movies, however. There are bits of Death Proof and Heat in there, among many others. (More than one Back the the Future movie? The Dark Knight? Sure, why not?)

You’ll see clips from the Die Hard movies and 12 Monkeys, as well as many more Willis films, but they’re all glued together with other action. Props go to the creative use of Kurt Russell’s Death Proof character in tandem with ‘Testarossa Autodrive (SebastiAn Remix)’ from Kavinsky’s 1986 EP.

There’s not much of a unifying principle here beyond the basic idea. No real plot, and no real commentary implied about how these films all play similarly enough to cut together to some extent. It’s really just a fun exercise for action fans. Sad thing is, this scattershot edit is more coherent than some action movies I’ve seen in the past couple years.

Here’s the ten-minute edit, which is NSFW for a bit of sex, and William Sadler’s ass. (Not seen in the same scene.)

The Pierre-Alexandre Chauvat page that presents the supercut on Vimeo offers:

When he wakes up one morning, Bruce Willis finds himself pursued by an entire city: or how to give him a hard time in 39 movies ! Don’t be mistaken, it’s just an action movie … old fashioned style !

In the grand scheme of MOBAs, Ironclad’s Sins of a Dark Age is quite the bold thing. AI directors, random rule-rewriting quests, and other RPG-influenced, flow-shattering shenanigans? This certainly isn’t DOTA 2.5 or Assortment of Apologues, and it’s not trying to be. But at one point, it was doing its damndest to be so much more. Unfortunately, the RTS-style base-building and commanding didn’t pan out, and Ironclad scratched them almost entirely. But according to studio director and co-owner Blair Fraser, his MOBA’s retching rejection of all things RTS is indicative of much larger problems for both genres. One, he argues, is on its death bed, and the other could be following suit if it doesn’t start blazing new trails.

This combined picture shows Italian sculptor Oliviero Rainaldi's statue of Pope John Paul II before its restoration, left, on Sept. 23, 2011, and at its inauguration after the restoration, in Rome on Nov. 19, 2012.

The Associated Press reports — The city of Rome has inaugurated a revamped statue of Pope John Paul II after the first one was pilloried by the public and the Vatican.

Pope or Mussolini? Statue sparks uproar

Artist Oliviero Rainaldi says he's pleased with the final product, saying it matches his original vision. He blamed foundry workers for a botched assemblage the first time around.

The statue was restored after Rainaldi was pilloried by the Vatican for creating a sculpture of Pope John Paul II that some mockingly said looked more like Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini than the beloved late pontiff. Even the Vatican's own art critic wrote that it looked like a "bomb" had landed.
