''Fatal Deviation'' is a 1998 Irish martial arts movie. Ireland's only martial arts movie, and [[SoBadItsGood perhaps for a very good reason]].

It tells the story of one Jimmy Bennett, a martial artist, returning to his hometown, Trim, after a decade in reform school, to investigate the death of his father. Along the way, he runs into the local drug ring, who are determined to win a local fighting contest, which will supposedly allow them to control the town, who may be [[ThePlotThickens connected to his father's death]], as well as a mysterious monk, and the beautiful Nicola.

The whole thing can be seen on Website/YouTube, starting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUHSCNMH4wE here]].

* TheAllegedCar: Every car that turns up in this movie is an old banger that's barely roadworthy.
* AllMonksKnowKungFu: There's an order of Kung Fu monks living in some old ruins. In fucking ''Ireland''. Their leader trains Jimmy. Okaaaay...
* BadassBiker: During the bike chase sequence.
* BadassBeard: The monk who trains Jimmy.
* BarBrawl: One breaks out when some local thugs start on an innocent guy. Jimmy intervenes on his behalf and beats the shit out of them ''and the barman''. Though, in Jimmy's defence, the barman [[TwoShotsFromBehindTheBar had just pulled a shotgun on him]].
* BangBangBANG: Averted, incredibly. [[KungFoley The punches and kicks are louder than the gunshots in this movie.]]
* BlatantLies: Nicola brings Jimmy an apple tart that she claims she made herself. The tart is clearly bought from the supermarket where she works.
* BondOneLiner: "Enjoy the slide!"
* TheBrute: Seagull.
* CombatPragmatist: Everybody in the Bealtaine Tournament.
* ClickHello: "I'm not paying you to sit on your arse smoking."
** And again at the end of the movie. Jimmy simply disarms the Big Bad, gives him a PreMortemOneLiner, then shoots him.
* CreatorCameo: Jimmy Bennett aside, producer Justin Harmon plays the [[FanDisservice naked cowboy mook]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Jimmy. Or he would be if his lines weren't so filled with {{Narm}}.
** His accent doesn't help with this.
* DullSurprise: Nicola. Dear God, Nicola.
* FanDisservice: [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment One Mook strips naked, barring a cowboy hat and gets into an outdoor bath for no real reason.]]
* FightingIrish
* GangstaStyle: Mikey's preferred method of firearms handling.
* GunsAkimbo: Jimmy during the StormingTheCastle sequence.
* {{Homage}}: Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme is clearly a massive influence, as the film takes cues from several of his movies, including the Van Damme kick.
* InevitableTournament: The Bealtaine tournament, which for some reason, will allow the winner to take control of the town.
* InformedAttractiveness: You'd swear by the way men fawn over Nicola that she was played by Creator/ScarlettJohansson.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: With mooks that shoot like the ones in this film, no wonder the BigBad has to take matters into his own hands with both Jimmy and his father.
* IronicEcho: This little gem from the ending.
--> '''BigBad''': [[ClickHello (Pulls shotgun on Jimmy)]] You killed my son! Now I'm going to kill you, just like I killed your father!
--> '''Jimmy''': (Disarms BigBad and tosses him to the ground, pointing shotgun at him) YouKilledMyFather! [[PreMortemOneLiner Now I'm going to kill you, just like I killed your son!]]
* JustPlaneWrong: Seagull flies from Hong Kong to Trim in a ''Cessna''.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: The BigBad's weapon of choice when he killed Jimmy's father.
* LimitBreak: Jimmy makes a victorious comeback against [[TheBrute Seagull]] the moment the monk starts chanting [[TitleDrop "Fatal Deviation"]] over and over.
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: Mikey's eventual fate.]]
* OhCrap: The bouncers at the pub Jimmy is refused from for no reason when he charges at them.
* OutrunTheFireball: Jimmy does this when escaping from the [[EveryCarIsAPinto car he has just crashed]].
* PostClimaxConfrontation: The BigBad accosts Jimmy when he's out on a date with Nicola after he's wiped out his gang.
* SoundtrackDissonance: There's only about two or three songs (presumably by the same band) on the soundtrack, none of which fit the scene they're played in.
* StormingTheCastle: The climax, in which Jimmy wipes out most of the gang to rescue Nicola.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: In the climax of the film, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Y9SCorKGx8o#t=411s Jimmy shoots a gangster in the head twice, then administers a rather unneeded roundhouse kick to the head]].
* TrainingMontage: Several.
* TwoShotsFromBehindTheBar: The barman pulls a shotgun on Jimmy during the BarBrawl. Jimmy takes it from him before shouting, "Fuck you and your gun, ya prick!"
* UnnecessaryCombatRoll: Jimmy rolls across the bonnet of a car and then back again in the middle of a fight for no reason.
* YouKilledMyFather: Turns out the BigBad killed Jimmy's father for unexplained reasons.
