''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.

!!Examples:

* TheAllegedCar: Every car that turns up in this movie is an old banger that's barely roadworthy.
* AllMonksKnowKungFu
* {{Badass}}: Jimmy.
** BadassBiker: During the bike chase sequence.
* BadassBeard: The monk who trains Jimmy.
* BarBrawl
* 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.
* TheDanza: Pretty much the entire cast. Justified in that none of them had ever acted before and would probably have difficulty responding to other names.
* 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 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: [[FailOSuckyname Seagull]] flies from Hong Kong to Trim in a ''Cessna''.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: The BigBad's weapon of choice when he killed Jimmy's father.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: For years, getting a full working copy of this movie was damn near impossible. The film really only gained its cult popularity after Colin Murphy reviewed it on ''Series/TheBlizzardOfOdd''.
* 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.]]
* NoBudget: This movie cost 8900 to make.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: 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]].
* OhCrap: The bouncers at the pub Jimmy is refused from for no reason when he charges at them.
* OldShame: For Mikey Graham anyway. This troper remembers seeing an interview where he was on a documentary about Irish actors trying to get their break in the States. Fatal Deviation is mentioned and he went all quiet.
* 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.
* ThrowItIn: The car crash in the climax was unscripted.
* TrainingMontage: Several.
* TwoShotsFromBehindTheBar
* UnnecessaryCombatRoll: Jimmy rolls across the bonnet of a car and then back again in the middle of a fight for no reason.
* YouKilledMyFather
